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.

Shih Tzu dogs are as cute as can be — physically and socially. The small, happy pups are loved for their friendly, affectionate personalities. If you’re looking for a small breed pup that's an adaptable dog, it’s worth looking into booking a meet-and-greet with a Shih Tzu.

Still, it’s important to go in with eyes wide open. These small pups have a knack for charming nearly everyone in the room, but they’re not the best breed for every home. Doing your homework and researching several breeds will help you find the best fit for your household. Though every Shih Tzu is unique, consider this guide a good place to start your research.

As a small dog owner, you might gaze longingly at the humans who can play endless games of fetch with their shepherds and go for 5-hour walks accompanied by their collies. But you can have all sorts of good times with your little guy. Don't let their size stop you from planning outings together. While, of course, you'll need to work within your beastie's physical constraints, there are lots of things you can do while accommodating their diminutive size.

Hang at the dog park
This is the pastime of many dogs, both large and small. Don't stay away from the park just because your bud can't race around for hours on end. Many parks now specifically set aside sections for small breeds. Take your pup there to find friends of a similar size. If you want to foray into the big dog section (or there isn't an area available for your pup), you can always ask the group if the dogs in there are friendly to their little cousins.
Go for hikes
While it might take a little preparation (and possibly a dog sling), your tiny Fido can enjoy hiking, too. You should work up to this by doing a little bit more each day or each week until they're ready to strike out for a longer adventure. Also, be sure to prep with necessary accouterments, such as water, treats, possibly a dog carrier, and mushers wax if it's winter.
Travel together
One of the biggest benefits of having a little dog is they can go on planes and trains. If your pooch seems to enjoy exploring new places, take them with you on vacation. The fees to travel by air can be a little high and there are some rules (you need them to lie down quietly under the seat for the duration of the flight). But for many doggies, they prefer the flight to staying behind with a sitter.

5 dog outings to plan for your Valentine’s Day (with or without a human date)
Need a date for Valentine's Day? Take your dog for a special outing instead

It can be a time to go on an important date or to stay at home with a bottle of your favorite Napa cab, but Valentine's Day also offers the opportunity to focus on the other important "people" in your life. This year, celebrate a different kind of love — the lasting bond between human and pup (no pricey chocolates included).
You don't have to have a human partner to observe Valentine's Day in style (though they can always tag along to your pet-themed activity). Here are a few things to do with your dog for a different kind of holiday experience.

Have a dinner date
Pick out a special dinner for you and Fido to enjoy together at your home or find a pet cafe or pet-friendly restaurant to dine out as a "couple." Most dogs can eat cooked meat in small quantities, so perhaps you want to share a chicken or steak on this special day. Of course, don't change up their diet if they have a sensitive tummy and cut only a piece that includes the same number of calories you'd ordinarily give them for dinner.
Go for a hike
OK, this isn't a classic Valentine's Day with your dog, but it's one your pup is sure to love. Enjoy the great outdoors together for exercise and scenic views, away from the noise of the day. Make it special by picking a unique destination and bringing some extra special snack.
Take your pooch on a date with their one true love
Does your pet have a best friend? Get them together on V-Day so your pup feels both human and canine love (bonus points if you and their owner also bring along your chosen beverage). A park day or pack walk will get everyone out of the house and feeling their best for this February 14th.
Watch romantic movies
All dogs love to snuggle on the couch with rom-coms. Find a couple of flicks that you've had on your list (or want to rewatch) and indulge in treats together in front of the TV. Your beloved pup won't judge if you tear up at the end when the couple finally gets together. Extra points if you pick out a dog- or cat-themed movie that might pique their interest with pet sounds.
Volunteer together
If your four-legged friend has the right temperament, consider training them to volunteer at a nursing home. It can be tricky to get approved for this; and only dogs that truly have a personality suited to the environment should try it. But if you can get them through the training, you'll both have a blast and brighten the days of everyone who gets to give you dog pats and biscuits.
