Fun & Quirky Dog Gifts For Dog Lovers Australia
Why do we shower dog gifts on our favourite pooches? Because a dog is a man’s best friend. But that old adage sells our canine champions way too short. They’re more than a friend. We buy dog gifts to show love for our shaggy haired friends because they’re vital to the wellbeing of the whole family. And our dogs take very seriously their roles and responsibilities. Our dogs are the family protector, the little one’s bodyguard, the kid’s playmate, Mum’s company, Dad’s motivation to exercise, and Grandma and Grandpa’s confidant. So we buy dog gifts for them just like we do for any family member. We give dog gifts for birthdays, dog gifts for Christmas, dog gifts as rewards, dog gifts to help them learn and dog gifts to keep them entertained.
The Perfect Dog Gifts For Different Doggys
It’s not just us and our pooches. There are pooches with millions of followers on Instagram and known all over the world. And your special pooch probably has a few similarities to the most famous dogs in the world. So to help you select a gift, we’ve listed a famous pooch and an awesome dog gift they would love:
> The presidential pooch: Bo Obama. Bo became an overnight worldwide sensation after being mentioned in Barack Obama’s acceptance speech. Bo, a Portuguese Water Dog, was a gift to his daughters, Sasha and Malia to take to the White House. You can be sure Bo is being fed only the healthiest meals by Michelle Obama, so he’ll love a change with some doggy donut treats.
> Pal, The Original Lassie. Arguably the most famous dog ever, Lassie was played by a Rough Collie, named Pal. 10 generations of Pal have starred in films from 1943 to 2007. And although Lassie was a female dog, she was portrayed by male dogs because males retain a thicker coat in summer. Being a global superstar meant that Pal would have needed a Puppy Passport. The fact it doubles as a squeaker toy would have Pal in a tail wagging frenzy.
> The ‘ruff’ and rugged dog: Rin Tin Tin. Rin Tin Tin was a real dog rescued from a French battlefield during WW1, by an American soldier called Lee Duncan. Duncan trained Rin Tin Tin, a German Shepherd, for films. Rin Tin Tin’s starring role in ‘Where The North Begins’, a huge box office success, is credited with saving Warner Bros. from bankruptcy. Rin Tin Tin was a tough dog, so Rin TIn TIn would have loved a tug of war dog toy.
> The loving and loyal legend: Hachiko. Every day he would greet his owner, Hidesaburo Ueno on his return from work at the nearby Shibuya Station. One sad day Ueno died and did not return. For nine years until he died, Hachiko would head to the station at the end of the day to wait for Ueno’s return. A gift for a loyal dog is 365 Reasons To Love Your Dog, because a dog like that will fulfill everyone, and you’ll be reminded how awesome they are and how many belly rubs they deserve.
> Boo the Pomeranian. Boo was one of the first dogs to star on the internet. Boo’s Facebook page has had over 17 million likes and he was dubbed the “cutest dog in the world”. Now being an internet sensation, Boo would be all too familiar with the camera. So a Pet Photobooth Box would get a million likes from Boo.
Need Something For The Boss? Gifts For Dog Lovers Australia
But it’s not just our precious pooches who love doggie gifts. Anyone who loves dogs loves the constant reminder of their special friend who loves them unconditionally. Give your boss or workmate a coffee mug that tells it like it is; “Dogs have masters. Cats have staff.” Or a set of Pug Dog Bookends to kennel all their journals. Perhaps something more subtle. Only the two of you will know he’s wearing Sausage Dog Odd Socks. And what about the ultimate desk ornament? A Retro Wooden Sausage Dog Pull Toy will soften the boss’ “ruff” exterior.
It’s clear, dogs are humble heroes of our lives. They’re more than a best-friend, they’re a family member. So, just a gentle reminder. When buying gifts for any occasion, don’t forget to buy dog gifts too. Such an important and loyal member of the family should never be overlooked.
