The Best Gifts for New Dog Owners

When somebody gets a new dog there is so much excitement all around because everyone wants to go round for a visit, a play and a cuddle! A new dog in the family or the friend group is an excuse to pick up some new dog gifts. If you’re struggling for ideas, then continue reading our helpful guide to help you find the best gifts for new dog owners.

Gifts for Dogs

There are tons of gifts that you could buy for a new dog with plenty of choices like dog toys, dog bandanas, dog blankets and so much more!

There are not many things dogs love more than treats, but toys are one of them. The best thing to get a new dog is some new toys, like a Toothy Treat Dog Toy or a Squeaker Sneaker Dog Toy. Whoever you’re buying these for will absolutely woof them!

At Yappy, we have so many varieties of toys in a range of sizes, shapes, colours and types, from squeaky options to harder chew toys.

As well as toys, you could also pick up a cute bandana for the pup. They’re super-adorable and can even be personalised with their own names - how cute! There are even birthday options too, so keep that in mind for when their big day comes around.

You could also buy the pup some paw-fect treats, so their mum or dad can treat them while out for walkies. Something like Golden Nugget Dog Treats would be paw-some!

Gifts for Humans

Now, when somebody you know gets their first dog, did you know that you could also buy them gifts?! Well, at Yappy we’ve got plenty of gifts for new dog owners!

Does this dog mum or dad love spending time in the kitchen? If so, pick them up a personalised apron to wear while cooking up delicious meals. Or you could get a personalised metal sign with all of their pup’s information on it. If they’re a gamer and love football then our Football Inspired Personalised Dog Metal Shield is the perfect gift for new dog owners.

Another great idea for a gift is a cute keyring for them to take their pup everywhere they go, fitting just inside their pocket! Unfortunately, we can’t all take our pups to work with us but with a keyring they’ll at least have an adorable snap of them to gaze at whenever they feel like. 

Just like keyrings, a personalised notebook would be a brilliant gift for a new dog owner. The notebook is a cute way for their pup to inspire their notes, plus it’s the pawfect place to pen down shopping lists for their new family member!

Gifts by Occasion

Has your friend or family member picked up their new dog around a major occasion in the calendar? Is it close to Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, or even Christmas? If so, there are plenty of gifts for new dog owners that you can buy based on the occasion.

Mother’s Day gifts at Yappy included a range of personalised mugs to enjoy a hot cup of coffee in, cushions to relax with, and personalised travel mugs they can take with them on-the-go. Some other adorable  gifts for new dog owners around Mother’s Day are personalised t-shirts and jumpers - all covered in cute pictures of their adorable pup!

There are plenty of Father’s Day gifts for new dog owners at Yappy too, including keyrings, personalised books and metal signs for the garden or garage. Every dog dad will woof them!

We also boast a selection of great dog dad birthday gifts and dog mum birthday gifts in case your friend has picked up their new dog around their birthday.
