Small Business Gift Guide: 11 Esty Finds for Dog Lovers

During the holiday season, I try my best to shop small for gifts and Etsy is a great place to do just that! You can shop by location to find a maker in your region or discover work created by someone across the world. Either way, supporting small business owners is great for local economies and allows you to give a more unique gift to friends and family. Take a look at these 11 Etsy finds for dog lovers that may even entice you decide to treat yourself or your dog this year.

The Woolly Bugger Mountain Living Inspired Art

I learned about Jane’s work after winning a contest on Instagram that included one of her string art pieces of my beloved Oregon. After my friend moved into her new home, I had Jane make a custom leash holder with her favorite colors and her two dogs painted over the mountains. Every time I see a new piece of Jane’s I want to have it for myself. In addition to state string art and dog leash holders, Jane also creates paintings, mugs, jewelry dish holders and more.

During a trip to Bend, I saw Megan’s art in several friends’ homes and in stores throughout the city. It’s whimsical and so so much fun and she’s local to the outdoor town. Her prints always include animals, usually with people and always in some sort of nature setting. You can cross country ski with fox and friends, share a tent with a bear, or hug a llama. Consider getting the calendar so you can enjoy her prints all year long.

Biothane is a waterproof material that is perfect for adventure dogs who swim and get muddy. The collars wash off easily and look new in a jiff. Moxie Collars come in a variety of widths and customizable colors. You can also add on a nameplate with important information that slides over the collar in case you use multiple collars and don’t want to switch ID tags each time.

Another biothane product in this line up, this time featuring a Euro-style leash. So, what exactly makes it Euro-style? This seven-foot leash serves various functions, thanks to the hardware snaps at either end of the lead. It can attach to different a D-rings to adjust the length, you can make a waist loop for hands-free walking or to tie your dog to a hitch while you run into the store, or you can create a slip lead for training and secure with a sliding O-ring to keep in place.
