6 Great Summer Gift Ideas for Dog Moms
1. Portable Water Dish
Nothing stops a devoted dog mom from taking her best friend for a walk. However, even as shops and restaurants begin to cautiously re-open, after spacing the tables and distributing masks, the water dish outside might not be top of mind.
Dogs and their loving pet parents will appreciate a portable water dish. These bottles open up into bowl shapes to provide dogs with a drink of fresh water. As summer heats up, hydration for dogs is even more important.
2. Shower Wand
Some dogs love water. Others, not so much. Either way, muddy paws happen and dogs need a bath from time to time. A shower wand made especially for pets will make quick work of bathing a dog that hates shampoo.
3. Interactive Pet Camera
Even if working from home lasts indefinitely, there will be times when dog moms must leave home without their precious companions.
An interactive dog camera with an associated app allows dog moms to communicate with and monitor their pets when the dog is at home and the mom is out. Some cameras can even throw a treat to send a little love remotely until you get home.
4. Walking Equipment
Some dogs are small enough to ride in a backpack, but all dogs need exercise and a chance to walk each and every day.
A coordinated set of harness, leash, and poop bags can turn a daily walk into a stylish stroll. A canine-themed cane can serve as a mobility aid, social distancing helping device, or just a way for the walker to show some style when out with the dog.
5. Dog Stories
Coffee table books celebrating puppy pulchritude, memoirs of beloved companions, or histories of particular breeds make great gifts for dog lovers to dive deep into their joyful obsession with dogs.
Books about famous dogs, hero dogs, and even fictional dogs make great reading for a rainy day, while dogs and their moms dry off from soggy outdoor romps.
6. Treat and Toy Box Subscriptions
When your imagination runs dry, let a subscription service provide a box of dog treats and toys for the dog lover in your life.
They’ll receive a selection that should delight dogs and their moms. These boxes are especially nice if they arrive “just because,” to show you are thinking of your dog family friends during tough times.
There are lots of dog-themed subscription boxes available; which one is right for your dog?
