Pawsome Gifts to Pamper Pooch Parents
When we fall in love with our dog’s unreserved affection and uncanny ability to make us laugh at any moment, we tend to fill our homes with things that remind us of them. Here are some of the fantastic dog-inspired products we found to add more joy into your life.
1. Editor’s Choice: Golden Retriever Apron

2. Runner Up: Skechers BOBS from Women’s Plush-Wag Party Flat
What’s the one thing a dog parent will always appreciate? Anything dog-themed, including footwear. These adorable flats are ideal for spring and summer: they’re comfy, lightweight, breathable, but the best thing of all- they’re all about pooches. Skechers BOBS from Women’s Plush-Wag Party Flat doesn’t only feature a cute print of pooches in all shapes and colors (literally, these are so colorful and fun!) but it also helps dogs in need.
Skechers donates to animal welfare organizations and shelters with each purchase of shoes from their BOBS collection, so not only you’ll be wearing some super cute flats but you’ll also be helping dogs in need of a home, medical treatments, and rescuing. The upper of these flats is made from textile, the sole is rubber with a memory foam footbed, so comfort is all but guaranteed: especially during those long walks with your pet by your side. There are three options available to choose from depending on your personal preferences- the pooch print comes in a black and white combination, grey shades, or vibrant multi-color print.

5. Best Mug: Chihuahua Cappuccino
Forget mugs that just have a flat design on it… this mug takes it one step further by making the mug into the shape of your special pooch. Not to mention they each come with a matching spoon!

These gorgeous mugs hold heat well and can even be put in the microwave and dishwasher, although handwashing is recommended!
In addition to this mug, you can choose from a handful of other breeds such as a Bearded Collie, Boston Terrier, Cocker Spaniel and more.
