The Best Gifts For Dogs & Their People Under $100

Dog people are a mixed breed all their own. They love fiercely, they’re loyal to any dog-related cause, and you bet they’ll get the BEST prezzies for their fellow dog lovers. The best part about buying gifts for dog people is that you’ll probably just end up buying gifts for their dogs—those are 85% of our purchases anyway, right? Check out this master post of presents that will make any puppy lover smile.


For Cuddly Duos

Why we love it:

  • $123 value!
  • Includes: Fair Isle Ski Hat, Rescued Wine Holiday Pine Candle, Buffalo Check Blanket, & Shareables Oat & Maple Tea Cookies
  • Perfect to save some dough and split up gifts!

BarkShop: Cozy Couple Bundle

Bundling has a reputation for being good to your wallet, and that’s 100% true here. With the Cozy Couple Bundle, you get all 4 of these awesome items for $35 less than if you bought them separately, and they’ll make you just as happy (especially your bank account).


For Mystery Mutts

Why we love it:

  • Database has over 250 breeds—the largest in the world!
  • Tests mixed breeds, pure-bred dogs, and designer dogs’ ancestry back to great-grandparents
  • Super easy cheek swab is all it takes

Amazon: Wisdom Panel 3.0 Identification DNA Test Kit

Is my dog a Golden? Bernese Mountain Dog? Maybe his great-great-grandparents were Shibas, ’cause of that killer side-eye and sass for days. If you can make a million guesses as to what breeds make up your absolutely, positively, fabulously AMAZING dog, then take a quick DNA sample (it’s just a cheek swap) and send it away to the folks at Wisdom Health. In 2–3 weeks, you’ll finally know what makes your pup so great.


For Party Animals

Why we love it:

  • Includes: Happy Birthday! Pup-pie, Roll Over Party Blower, Do The Twist! Balloon Dog, Barkday Bites, Takes the Cake, & Frank’s Flank Steak Chew
  • Everything you need to celebrate your favorite family member
  • Treats & toys in one awesome bundle

BarkShop: It's My Party Kit

If there’s cause to celebrate anything in this world, it’s the magical wonderful-ness that is our dogs. Shove cake in each other’s faces and blow that party horn to the cacophony of happy howls, because it doesn’t need to be anyone’s birthday to treat yourself and your pup.


For Bed Hogs

Why we love it:

  • For large or large-minded dogs—measures 34″ x 24″ x 4″
  • 4″ of orthopedic egg crate foam
  • Cover unzips for cleaning

Amazon: Serta Orthopedic Couch Dog Bed

Chances are your dog is just as in love with your mattress as you are, so why not give him the same luxurious comfort? Whether it’s soothing aching joints or helping your puppy count sheep after an afternoon walk, this bolstered bed is reserved for champion nappers and couch potatoes alike.


For Leash Pullers

Why we love it:

  • Rubber is waterproof, washable, & hypoallergenic
  • Super strong for dogs who pull
  • Padded handle protects hands & wrists

BarkShop: Ergoflex Hi-Tech Rubber Lead

Some dogs just have to be everywhere in a hurry. The bad news is this rubber leash won’t magically slow them down; the good news is that it’ll make your hands feel a whole lot less like rope burn when they tug. The Ergoflex leash has a comfy padded handle, and the lead itself is 100% rubber, which makes it soft, strong, waterproof, and washable.


For Teeny Tiny Dogs

Why we love it:

  • Durable cotton canvas
  • Machine-washable
  • Measures 24″ tall x 20″ in diameter
  • Best for dogs and puppies no larger than 15 pounds

Amazon: Little Dove Pet Teepee

Choose this precious teepee hideaway with a soft plush cushion, heat-resisting mat, or no cushion at all. It’s constructed with tough cotton canvas and connected with pine wood poles; ties on either side of the entrance hold the flaps open for her majesty the Queen Doge. Puppies and dogs shouldn’t be any larger than about 15 pounds to fit comfortably inside.


For Dog Park Connoisseurs

Why we love it:

  • Ballistic nylon base & reinforced seams
  • Includes treat pocket, ball bag, poop bag dispenser
  • 3 designs available

BarkShop: Dog Park Trio Bundle

You’ll never look at a tote the same way again. This is the ultimate dog person bag, complete with a nylon-lined treat pocket, poop bag holder, attachable poop bag dispenser, and nylon-lined ball bag for picking up slobbery tennis balls. The base of the bag itself is made with durable ballistic nylon and reinforced corner seams, and you get 6 rolls of poop bags & 4 of the best balls ever.


For Puddle Jumpers

Why we love it:

  • Hand pockets on underside for drying wet dogs
  • Non-slip backing
  • 100% microfiber & machine-washable
  • Soaks up to 7x its weight

Amazon: Messy Mutts Non-Slip Chenille Microfiber Drying Mat & Towel

Rain or shine, dogs gotta go potty. When my pup comes back in from pooping in the middle of a downpour, the first thing I do is grab a towel and try to soak up all the water I can—he’s always still damp afterward.

This towel-slash-rug from Messy Mutts soaks up to SEVEN TIMES its weight in water, resists dirt and dust, and has convenient pockets to use like a towel. It’s also perfect to lie down inside doorways to soak up water from wet paws before they hit your floors.


For Dashing Dogs

Why we love it:

  • Vivid colors
  • Durable cowhide
  • Stainless steel hardware

BarkShop: Ware Of The Dog Two-Tone Leather Collar

Fun fact: unlike humans, who have 3 cone receptors in their eyes for detecting color, dogs only have two—blue and yellow. So not only will passersby have no trouble seeing your pup with this bright dual-colored collar, but it’ll catch the eye of every neighborhood dog, too. Made lovingly by the folks at Ware Of The Dog, this collar is made in the USA with 100% cowhide and stainless steel hardware.


For Cozy Crates

Why we love it:

  • Rolls up for easy access to front or side doors
  • Comes in a variety of colors & patterns
  • Fits most crates
  • Durable & washable (cold water, line-dry)

Amazon: Molly Mutt Crate Cover

Dogs who like to hole up in warm, safe spaces will love the feel of being in a crate with a crate cover to block out all the hubbub. Unlike throw blankets or sheets, these covers are specifically designed to snap onto any crate and roll up for access to the doors. Durable cotton canvas sticks around for the long haul, and there are designs available to match any home.


For Plush Fiends

Why we love it:

  • Lots of fun textures: hair, rope, plush, ballistic nylon
  • Plenty of squeakers
  • Angler fish has a treat pocket mouth!

BarkShop: Tearers Of The Deep Toy Bundle

*beep* Calling Dr. Dog. Please report to the operating theater for four emergency squeakerectomies. I’m guess your dog probably has a medical license in this field, right? This four-pack of fun is part of the Under the Seams collection for elite members of the Destroyers Club. Built with ballistic nylon teeth, t-shirt rope, plenty of hidden squeakers, and double the legal amount of fluff, dogs will get hours of ocean fun without all the clunky scuba gear.


For Frequent Travelers

Why we love it:

  • Four mesh windows with curtains
  • Locking zippers
  • Extra pockets for treats, water, or other supplies
  • Includes handle and padded shoulder strap
  • Available in multiple colors and sizes

Amazon: EliteField 3-Door Folding Soft Dog Crate

Don’t bother pinching your fingers again trying to collapse your dog’s metal crate to stow in the car. This soft folding crate assembles and collapses super easily, and the frame is made of sturdy steel tubing covered by hex mesh fabric to stand up to horseplay. Four mesh windows with curtains are located on the front, sides, and top for ventilation and light.

I love that the cover is removable for washing (as is the included bed), and that the zippers lock in case of a four-legged Houdini. Just fold it up, pack it away, and reassemble in a snap wherever your road trips take you.


For Big Car-Loving Dogs

Why we love it:

  • Weighs 10lbs but supports over 150lbs
  • High-traction surface
  • Measures 62″ x 16″ x 4″, tread material is 12.5″ wide

Amazon: Solvit UltraLite Bi-Fold Pet Ramp

Big ol’ doggos who love letting their tongue flap in the wind on car rides shouldn’t miss out just because they can’t get in the car. Achy joints, injuries, or an inability to hop into their seat are no longer an issue with this high-traction ramp. It weighs only 10 pounds but supports over 150, and makes getting in and out of the car a breeze.
