Keeping Pets Cool during the Balmy Summer Months

My husband and I live in the beautiful southern United States. While we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, we sometimes get excruciatingly hot during the summer months. We aren’t the only ones that get hot at our home though. Our beautiful dog Lucy also gets hot. I’m constantly searching for effective ways to keep her cool while she’s outside. And during the winter, it can get oddly cold at times. Do you have loving pets at home? Consider purchasing a small plastic pool for your pets to splash around in. And when it's cold, make sure to monitor them very carefully while outside. On this blog, I hope you will discover ingenious tips to help you care for your pets during any extreme weather.

Fun, Personalized Gift Ideas For Dog Owners

Pets & Animals Blog

Do you have someone in your life who absolutely loves dogs? Then, of course, you will want to give them a dog-themed gift for the holidays. If you have it personalized, such a gift can honor not only their love for dogs in general but also their love for their own, specific dog. Here are some ideas for gifts that are easily personalized for dog owners.

Collars and Leashes

Many pet stores will embroider a dog's name onto a nylon collar. If you were to buy a leather collar, you could have a metal nameplate made for it. Consider buying a matching leash, and also having that personalized with the dog's name. It might be a good idea to have the owner's name and phone number also added to the collar and leash — in a smaller font — so that if the dog becomes lost with these items on, their owner can be found.

Food and Water Bowls — With a Matching Mug

Imagine drinking your morning coffee out of a mug that perfectly matches your dog's water bowl. If you're a dog lover yourself, you probably find that idea appealing. You can choose a food bowl and water bowl for the dog, and then a mug in the same color, and have all three items personalized with the dog and owner's name, plus an image of a dog. It can also be fun to add some paw prints to these personalized items.

Treat Jars

What dog does not love treats? Chances are, your loved one's dog loves treats, and your loved one probably enjoys giving them. As a gift, then, you could give them a jar that has been printed with the dog's name, a cute saying, or even some paw prints or a photo of the dog. Make sure you choose a treat jar that seals well so the dog won't sneak any treats!

Dog Beds

Another fun personalized option for a dog lover is a dog bed. You could have the bed embroidered with the dog's name along one edge, or even with more details like the dog owner's name, too. Make sure you select the right size bed for the dog. If you're unsure, always size up rather than sizing down.

There are so many good, personalized gifts that you can give to dog lovers. The ideas above are just a few to start with. Enjoy!
