Mother's Day Gifts for Dog Loving Moms

I'd like to share some of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts for Moms who love dogs.  Happy Mother’s Day to Dog Moms everywhere!!


I’m a total bookworm, books are one of my favorite gifts to give and receive.   Here’s a list of books I think make great gifts for dog lovers.  Below that is a short list of some other gifts I think are a good choice for dog loving moms.
  • It’s Me or the Dog, How to Have the Perfect Pet, by Victoria Stilwell, host of the It’s Me or The Dog TV show on Animal Planet.  This is a good book for first time dog owners or dog owners that need some help with the basics.  It covers a lot of the basics on obedience training, behavior issues, and leadership.   She has another book out called Train Your Dog Positively.  I haven’t read this one yet, but I’m sure it’s great. You can find her books on Amazon and on her web site, www.positively.com
  • Pretty much any of Cesar Millan’s books.  Cesar has a number of books that deal with how to raise a dog, dealing with behavior problems, and how to be the pack leader in the home. All are available on Amazon and his web site www.cesarsway.com
  • The Only Dog Tricks Book You’ll Ever need, by Gerilyn J. Bielakiewicz.  I taught Isis to play dead using the steps in this book.  She won a Cutest Trick contest at the pet store with it!  She also learned how to spin and give me a high five with her paw.
  • Angel on a Leash; Therapy Dogs and the Lives They Touch, by David Frei.  This is truly one of my favorite books, it inspired me to pursue becoming a therapy dog team with Isis.  You may know David Frei as one of the hosts of the Westminster Kennel Club show.  
  • The Healing Power of Pets; Harnessing the Amazing Ability of Pets to Make and Keep People Happy and Healthy, by Dr. Marty Becker.  Dr. Becker is also the co-author of Chicken Soup For the Pet Lover’s Soul.  He was the veterinary contributor to ABC’s Good Morning America TV show for many years, and is a contributor to the Dr. Oz show and Medical Advisory Panel.   Check out his web site for a list of his other books at: www.drmartybecker.com
  • Chicken Soup For the Dog Lover’s Soul by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Carol Klein.  I absolutely loved this book, it’s so heartwarming.  I bought it for several friends.
  • The AAA Pet Book, written by AAA of course.  This book is a must have for us when we travel on long car trips with our dogs.  It’s full of so much information, not only lodging listings for the U.S. and Canada but lots of good travel tips and information.  You can get it either at a AAA store or on Amazon.
Other gifts I’d give a dog loving mom:
  • Cesar Millan’s The Dog Whisperer  videos.  These DVD’s contain episodes from his NatGeo Wild TV show The Dog Whisperer.  They are available on Amazon and his web site www.cesarsway.com
  • Doggie jewelry shows the world you’re a dog lover.  Target has some cute pieces on their web site, under dog paw jewelry.  I like the sterling silver black diamond accent paw print necklace.  I also like the paw print stud earrings and some other items available online.
  • If you want to go really chic and spend up on a gift, Tiffany & Co. makes some unique dog jewelry.  They make a sterling silver Scotty dog tag charm you can wear on a necklace or bracelet.  It’s $125.  They also make an 18K gold diamond Scotty pendant.  I don’t own a Scotty but I love them and have always wanted a jet black Scottish Terrier.  This charm is on my wish list!    They have a whole line of items for dogs and dog lovers on their web site, www.tiffany.com
I do not receive any compensation, product, or consideration for any of my product recommendations or reviews.  If I ever do, I will certainly disclose it.
