5 dog-themed home decor finds to spruce up your aesthetic

How do you show your love for your dog? Some pet parents place stickers on their car, while others carry photos or even decorate their home with canine-inspired accessories. Whatever makes you happy!

If you’re one for sporting your puppy love around the house, these decor items are some of the best gifts for dog owners. From rustic to modern and minimalistic, anything you can imagine is available somewhere. To make it easier though, here are a few of our favorite dog-themed home decor finds. You’re welcome!

Aylor Dog Lover Room Darkening Curtain Panels

With their modern style and adorable puppy pattern, Aylor’s Dog Lover Room Darkening Curtains are perfect for any room in the house. This two-pack of panels is crafted from machine-washable polyester, which is both lightweight (yet heavy enough to darken a room) and pleasing to the touch.

By swapping out your old curtains for these adorable, dog-inspired drapes, you’ll give your entire room a fresh, new look. The design itself isn’t too much, so your style will still be the room’s main focus, but your love of dogs will shine through just the right amount.

Primitives By Kathy “All You Need Is Love…And A Dog” Pillow

Now you can take cozy to a whole new level. This 15-by-10-inch throw pillow gets right to the point in a simple, sweet message written in two whimsical fonts: “All you need is love…and a dog.” Preach!

Although the rustic-style pillow looks like burlap, it’s made of polyester and cotton; so you won’t need to worry about fabric quality. Not only is the pillow comfy, but it’s also an attractive addition to nearly any couch, chair, or bed with its spacious, rectangular shape. Before you know it, your pet might just be napping with it, too.

You Me and The Dogs 6×12 Wood Sign

Whether you display this in the bedroom, dining room, or even the garden, the love behind it is sure to last. This sweet sign is the perfect romantic addition to your home, with the words “you + me and the dogs” printed elegantly on a dark wooden plaque.

Reviews praise the versatility of this sign, as it can be hung like a wall decoration or placed on a table as an accent. The dark-brown wood and white script of the sign complement each other without being too bold. There’s nowhere in your home this won’t belong.

BUYMAX Animal Succulent Plant Pots

For parents of both pups and plants, these planters will surely bring a smile to their faces. They’re the perfect addition to any windowsill or desk — wherever they’ll be seen and enjoyed! Each set of four features a Labrador, Boston terrier, bulldog, and husky planter, all of which have drainage holes, mesh mats for plant comfort, and pads on the feet on the pot.

If you don’t have any plants around that need a home, these little pots also make the perfect pencil jar or paper clip holder. They’re just so cute, it would be hard not to use them!

Dog Gone Smart Dirty Dog Doormat

At first glance, this doormat is colorful and cute, with a big white paw print outline in the center.  When you look closely at this fluffy textured mat, however, you’ll notice that the microfiber material is super absorbent, too. The product description claims that this doormat can hold up to seven times its weight in water, dirt, and mud — which may make this the ideal gift for your dog’s feet rather than yours!

Fortunately, customers agree. Countless reviews appreciated the rug’s super-absorbent qualities, soft and paw-friendly texture, and easy cleanup. Sounds like a winner all around!

From clever office supplies to adorable cleaning tools, you can find dog-themed items for every room in the house. The best news is that so many of these items are affordable, too! It’s easier than you might think to create the happy space of your dreams, especially one that revolves around dogs.

Whether you’re taking a vacation or a staycation, every member of the family should get the chance to let loose and have a good time, including your four-legged friend. That's why you should consider your dog’s needs and habits when planning a vacation to California, especially in the winter. You'll need to find places that take him and will serve his particular needs well, like having spaces for him to walk comfortably. Think carefully, though — not all of California is the same!
In the Golden State, you can choose what type of weather you’d like to see, what landmarks and terrain to explore, and even the culture of the city you stay in. Accommodations for your dog can be harder to plan, so check out some of these dog-friendly places in California before making your decision. You might be surprised by what you’ll find on the list!

1. Yosemite National Park
If your pup doesn’t mind some chillier temperatures, they can accompany you to one of California’s most scenic destinations — Yosemite National Park. Dogs are allowed (on leash) on many of the park’s major trails, so you’ll be sure to get all the photo ops you need. There are also tons of gorgeous cabins and lodges nearby, which means you’ll have somewhere to cozy up for the night.
Remember to take some extra supplies when bringing your pet to the snow, like a dog jacket and paw-protective booties. It’s also important not to stay out in the cold too long, especially if your pup isn’t used to those kinds of temperatures.

Picking out the perfect pooch involves a lot more heart than science — you know the right one the second you see her. But when you choose a dog breed, you should consider a number of factors, including the animal's health and life expectancy, along with other factors, such as size and temperament. After all, you need a pup that fits into your lifestyle and that sticks around with you for a long time. Here's a list of the top five dog breeds with the least health issues.

What breeds of dogs have the least health problems
We're coming with this one out of the gate, because it's the longest-living breed on average. They routinely make it to 20 and nearly always hit the teenage years if properly cared for. Chihuahuas generally have few health issues, though they can be prone to bad teeth, loose knees, and trachea problems like other small dogs. And don't make the mistake that your tiny fluffer doesn't need exercise: She will quickly become obese if not given enough walks and playtime.

How to prepare pumpkin spice for dogs -- because even dogs should get a taste
However you want to prepare these autumnal ingredients, you should know a few things about pumpkin spice for dogs. Pumpkin on its own is full of nutrients, such as vitamins and iron; plus, its high fiber content can regulate finicky digestive systems (via American Kennel Club). Just make sure your dog doesn’t get any added sugars with her pumpkin, as this isn’t good for her.
When preparing your spice mix, remember to avoid nutmeg. This ingredient isn’t healthy for pups, and it can easily be left out for a similar flavor. Instead, a mix of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove, and a dash of vanilla extract will do. Use these ingredients to spice up nearly any biscuit, yogurt, or pumpkin-flavored dog treat!
