DIY Gifts for your Dog

Nothing says 'I love you' like a homemade gift and the same applies for canines as it does for humans!  I've rounded up some of my favourites from the net so you can rustle up the perfect present for your pooch for their birthday or pin for later on for Christmas. Or let's face it, we love them so much why not just treat them?!

1. Homemade Peanut Butter Biscuits.

Dogs adore peanut butter, and these treats are easy to make and make a lovely gift, displayed in an attractive jar.  You can afford to make your whole dog-walking group some!

Or try this different, but equally delicious sounding recipe from Parent-Shaped.

2. Dog Walking Station.

You could go one step further, and load up your treats and other dog-walking essentials in this great DIY lead station from Dog Buddy. This is definitely on my list to have a go at.

3. Hardwearing Rope Toy.

Shop bought dog toys are expensive and generally don't last long, so try your hand at making this long-life rope toy.

4. A stylish dog bed 

For the dog with a spirit of adventure, get your DIY on with this fabulous bed from a vintage suitcase.  Max and Fodder shows you how.

5. Moisturising dog shampoo

This gorgeous shampoo uses natural ingredients and coconut oil to keep the coat in tip-top condition. A lovely treat to make for your pooch which will keep them squeaky clean.

What will you make for your hound? Let me know why they deserve a treat.


  1. The doggy shampoo sounds like a great idea. I'm sure coconut oil would be great for a shiny coat.

  2. Aw, I love the bed, so stylish and fun looking. I might eat the biscuits myself, I love peanut butter!

  3. I don't even have a dog, but I think these look brilliant! I love the lead station and the peanut butter biscuits.

  4. We love making biccies for the dog. Now I want a bone cutter!

  5. I love the idea of the long-life rope toy. My mums dog gets through so many

  6. The long-life rope you sounds great, we have only had Merrie 4 days and already the toys are looking well worn, guess that's the joys of a Newfoundland!
