The products in our dog shop are interwoven throughout the site with thoughts and feelings about dogs and our relationships with dogs by some of the most talented and famous writers about animals, along with snippets of dog news, information, quotes and humor. We hope this will make your search for a dog gift more enjoyable. It’s our way of honoring the profound and unique contributions dogs make to our lives. They enrich us in deep and powerful ways that touch our hearts and that all dog lovers understand.Just as dogs make us happy, we seem compelled to make them happy too. We don’t just feed them, clean up after them, take them for walks and see that they get their shots and vitamins, we buy them endless supplies of toys and treats, plush dog beds and fancy sweaters, as well as the doggie hats and boots, dog jewelry, hair ornaments and bling which we do for ourselves.The great thing about all gift giving is that it’s a win-win situation. Giver and receiver both feel good. Gift giving brings out the best in us. It’s an expression of what makes us most human – the ability to care for someone other than ourselves, and a tribute to the human spirit. Giving a gift to another human is one thing – the person receiving the gift responds in a personal way and may be expected to reciprocate at some future time. The exchanging of gifts between family members or friends is a major part of human culture, a ritual of mutual caring and bonding.Giving gifts to or for dogs is different. You don’t get a return gift at Xmas or on your birthday. It brings its own rewards, depending on the gift. If it can be put in the mouth, eaten, chewed on, ripped up or dragged around, experiencing the sheer joy in your dog when he or she gets the gift is a peak experience for you both. A great dog bed also falls into this category. It’s your dog’s personal space and valued accordingly. If the gift is wearable – a dog collar, dog clothing, jewelry, carrier or other accessories, the primary rewards are to you – the pleasure of giving your dog the very best and seeing him or her look their cutest and coolest. Either way, giving dog gifts seems like a no-brainer.
