What Type of Dog Mom Are You?

We know ‘em and we love ‘em – the Dog Moms in our lives. They come in all shapes and sizes. They have different interests, different personalities. Maybe you ARE one. (If that’s true, you’ll prooobbbably wanna get this list in the hands of someone who loves you!)

No matter how different they may be, one thing is for sure. All of them love their dogs and the unique bond they share together.

After all, “moms” are just people who love and nurture those in their care.

So what type of Dog Mom do you need to shower with appreciation? Below are six gift ideas for the different Dog Moms in your life. Most of these gift ideas are local to Nashville.  But no worries; if you don’t live in Music City, you can order online.

The Artistic Mom

Does your Dog Mom have the soul of an artist? Does she enjoy exercising her creative talents? Or does she delight in displaying unique pieces of art in her home – especially art that showcases her furbaby?

Here’s a unique gift idea. Bet she’d love a Paint Your Own Pet class from Painted Paw Studio. Owner and founder Sarah Shearer will inspire your inner artiste during the 2 hour class. She’ll have your pet sketched onto the canvas before you arrive. And under her guidance, you’ll learn how to mix acrylic paints and apply to create your masterpiece

(Insider Tip: Sarah has a Mother’s Day Special going on right now – see website for details!)

If you’re not quite ready to pick up a paintbrush, Painted Paw Studio also offers exquisite watercolor portraits or inked sketches of your pet. Check out their website for full offering. If you’re not in Nashville, they can ship!

The  In-Touch Mom

This Dog Mom loves her furbabies and she wants the world to know it. She’s got a flair for styling, and an eye for the unique and seeks the freshest brands without sacrificing the practical . She has something to say and she seeks to make her dollars speak for the causes she believes in. This Mom would love something from Hunter & June – like this embroidered Dog Mom hat or “I Love My Dog” French tee.

Founders Kalina and Pete Stormer launched their Nashville based online business in 2017 and now have their own storefront in East Nashville. Did you know a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this tee and hat is donated to canine non-profits? You can find out more on their website and check out their entire collection – from clothing, leashes, toys and more.

The Adventurous Mom

You know this Dog Mom. She’s always up for an outing in the great outdoors with her best buddy. Hiking, camping, chasing waterfalls. If it’s outside and she can bring her dog, she’s in!

How about a standup paddleboard class? Nashville Paddle Company, located on Percy Priest Lake, offers classes and rentals – and is dog-friendly, too! Book Mom a class or get her a gift certificate.

(Insider Tip: Nashville Paddle Co will be scheduling some SUP with Your Pup classes in the near future. We’ll keep you abreast of dates and times.)

Don’t live in Nashville but have a Dog Mom you think would love this? You should be able to find a SUP rental near your location.

Keep in mind that your Mom’s dog will need to wear a PFD while out on the water. We like Ruffwear K-9 Float Coat.(Our Amazon link – we earn a small commission from this. No charge to you.)

The Dogtographer Mom

Okay, aren’t we all?!

This Dog Mom always has her camera in hand. She may (or may not) have the latest gear, neatest lenses and an eye for a great angle. But what she may not have with her could mean the difference between that once-in-a-lifetime photo and a missed opportunity.

The perfect gift for this Dog Mom? She needs extra camera batteries and a cleaning kit to keep in her camera bag.

Dog Moms can testify: photographing your pup means sometimes you end up with dog spit across your camera lens. A Nikon 8228 Lens Pen Pro Kit can help save the day.

Plus it’s always the worst when you’re out on the trail and your camera battery decides it’s done for the day. Extra camera batteries are always appreciated by any photographer.

Consider a packable tripod to carry when hiking. Or a camera-ready backpack.

The Competitive Mom

Here’s the Dog Mom that is high-energy. Playing with and training her dog is the most fun thing ever. She likes a challenge, loves to learn and discover just what she can do. She is not afraid to push herself to achieve her best – and she loves watching her dog do the same.

This Dog Mom would definitely appreciate a gift of a class for her favorite dog sport. Agility, Obedience, Rally, Tracking, Herding, Barn Hunt, Flyball, Dock Diving – the possibilities are exciting!

For starters, check out the list of classes offered at Nashville Dog Training Club. The next Session will be starting in several weeks.

And if your Dog Mom and her pup need some extra help with basic manners and other behaviors, gift her a class at Dogs and Kat Dog Training and Behavior Counseling. Kat Martin has over 17 years of experience working in canine behavior modification and training. Check out her offerings here.

The One-of-a-Kind Mom

This one-of-a-kind Mom expects a one-of-a-kind gift. To say she thinks her dog is the best dog in the world (and the smartest and the prettiest, etc.)  would be an understatement.

Or perhaps you know a Dog Mom who had to say goodbye to her furbaby. And her heart would be glad for a huggable reminder of the dog she loved.

Look no further than Cuddle Clones. You’ve seen them on Today, The Huffington Post, Pickler & Ben and many other media outlets. Send them a detailed image and they will hand-craft a replica of your pet.

Best part? If you’re not satisfied, they offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
