Clean, Fresh Water: PetSafe Drinkwell Dog Platinum Water Fountain

No one enjoys drinking flat, stale water. This includes your friend’s new puppy. With the PetSafe Drinkwell water fountain, the pup will have access to up to a gallon of fresh, running water whenever he’s thirsty.

This fountain is also great for ensuring he doesn’t get sick. Small puppies often have no impulse control and will drink way too much water way too fast.

This fountain, though, presents a steady stream of water.

The puppy will have to slow down and drink slowly from the stream instead of lapping it up quickly from a large bowl. This’ll keep him from swallowing too much air and getting sick after drinking.

Although buying gifts for your friend’s new puppy is definitely something she’ll love, sometimes you want to buy a gift specifically for her instead. In that case, this gorgeous, customizable blanket can make a spectacular gift.

The clippers are rechargeable and low noise, so they shouldn’t scare the puppy when he’s using them.

The kit also comes with ten other items. There is a power adapter, several comb attachments for all his trimming needs, a cleaning brush, some scissors, a steel comb and even tools to take care of the puppy’s nails.

It’s also double-sided like a hammock. This is a great safety feature; if your friend has to slam on his brakes while driving, the dog will only fall forward into the other side of the cover as opposed to into the back of the seat or into the floorboard.

pet clothes hoodie set

picture frame for dog

Puppies have lots and lots of reasons to travel. Whether it’s a weekend camping trip or a trip to the vet for vaccinations, puppies have places to go. With this rolling backpack, you can make your friend’s trips much easier.

Puppies grow quickly, and they can get heavy. Having a pet carrier that rolls instead of lugged around on a shoulder or back can definitely help your friend. It does double as a backpack, though, if your friend prefers to carry his puppy around that way.

cookie cutter and molds pack

These molds and cookie cutters are super cute and dog-themed. Your friend can use them for making dog-themed cookies, candy, chocolate and/or ice cubes for humans. However, if she wants to make some delicious, all-natural puppy treats, she can use these for that as well.

cookie box

Tons of Tasty Treats: Wüfers Handmade Hand-Decorated Cookie Box

Dogs love treats just as much as any human you know, and there’s no better time for dog treats than when dogs are puppies. Puppies are just like rambunctious children. They have no manners and no concept of what the word “No” means.

It’s during this time period that dog owners will spend a lot of time trying to train his new puppy.

One of the most effective ways of training is with tasty treats. Buying your friend a big box of gourmet dog treats will help with his puppy’s new training regime.

These are especially nice because they’re made with human-grade ingredients safe for both your friend and his dog. They’re also hand-decorated and beautiful.

pet feeding magnetic reminder

For the Forgetful Friend: Allinko Dog Feeding Magnetic Reminder Sticker

Puppies love to eat, and they stay hungry constantly. It doesn’t matter if a puppy has just been fed, he’ll beg and beg for more food. Sometimes, this can actually get puppy parents wondering, “Did I forget to feed him this morning?” Chances are they didn’t and the puppy is just an A-List actor trying to get a second feeding.

This magnetic reminder sticker will ensure your friend never gets tricked by those big, begging eyes and puppy whines. On the off-chance that your friend does actually forget to feed his new furry friend, this’ll also serve as a reminder that the pup hasn’t had his morning feeding yet.

It’s a practical gift that any dog owner will love.

pet odor exterminator candle

Sensational Smells: Barkery 13-ounce Pet Odor Exterminator Candle

This candle by Barkery is one such way. It contains enzymes specifically formulated to actually remove odors from your friend’s house, not just mask them with a scent.

This particular candle has an approximate burn time of about 70 hours.

In addition to ridding your friend’s house of pet odors, it also has a very pleasant smell. According to the Barkery company’s description, the candle smells like the inside of a gourmet bakery full of vanilla, donuts and other sweets.

It’s sure to please the noses of both humans and dogs alike.

dog dental kit

Take Care of Puppy’s Teeth: Arm & Hammer Dog Dental Kit

This is everything your friend will need to start his puppy off right when it comes to dental hygiene.

dog poop bags

The Bare Necessities: AmazonBasics Unscented Dog Poop Bags

Sometimes the best gift you can give someone is buying them something they know they need but don’t want to spend money on themselves. Poop bags definitely fit that description. Every puppy owner needs easily accessible poop bags he can use to pick up and dispose of his dog’s waste, but it’s not something people enjoy buying.

With these bags, you can give the gift of up to 900 bags. They even come with a clip-on dispenser that hooks right to the leash.

dog nail grinder

Protect Your Friend’s Skin: Dremel PawControl Cordless Dog Nail Grinder

Nail trimming is a difficult process for dogs, especially while using clippers.

This tool, though, is a grinder. Instead of having to hold the puppy still and somehow clip its nails, your friend can simply sit with the puppy on his lap and slowly grind the nails down.

It has a 45° nail guard that’ll help your friend grind the nails down to the perfect level without going too deep in the dog’s paws and risk hurting the puppy. It also comes with nine different accessories for all his grinding needs.

This high-quality, durable ceramic mug is both dishwasher- and microwave-safe and holds up to 11 ounces of whatever morning pick-me-up your friend enjoys. The adorable message on it, “Everything tastes better with dog hair in it,” reminds everyone she sees that she’s a proud pet parent.

It’s very much like a K-12 memory book for a child.

lint rollers for pet hair

For Fur-Free Clothes: PetLovers Six-Pack Extra Sticky Lint Rollers for Pet Hair

After your friend gets a new puppy, lint rollers are a must. There isn’t much a puppy loves more than jumping up into his person’s lap and snuggling. This could happen at any time of day or night, meaning your friend could be covered in dog hair before work, a date, a workout or at any other point in the day.

He may not always have time to clean or change his clothes. Having several lint rollers stashed in important places, such as the car, the bathroom, his desk, etc., can help cut down on the embarrassment of being covered in fur in an important meeting or on a first date.

These particular lint rollers are extra sticky, so they should pick up even the most stubborn dog hairs that don’t want to come off his clothes.

natural deer antlers

To Help with Teething: WhiteTail Naturals Natural Deer Antlers

One of the most difficult times in a puppy’s life is when he’s teething. This usually happens up until he’s about seven months old. During this time, he’ll be in a lot of discomfort. He’ll be chewing on anything he can get his mouth on just to try to relieve some of the irritation in his gums and get rid of the loose teeth.

This could include everything from broken sticks to table legs to your friend’s toes.

Help him out by buying him a pack of these all-natural antlers. These are extremely hard, which means they last a long time.

They’re also all-natural, clean and safe. This’ll help save your friend’s furniture, and it can help keep his puppy from getting sick. Sticks and other things from outside could have all kinds of nasty stuff on them to upset the puppy’s stomach.

Whatever he decides to use it for, he’s sure to love it.

Picking the Perfect Present

People who have never had pets, specifically puppies, may not understand just how much hard work goes into owning, training and taking care of a new puppy.

Puppies teethe just like human babies. They whine and whimper when they’re alone. They use the bathroom in inconvenient places, requiring their owners to clean up after them several times a day.

New puppy expenses are also pretty hefty. In addition to a new crate, food, a collar and a leash, there are many other things new puppy owners have to buy.

Plus, just like human babies, new puppies need lots of vaccinations and check-ups at the vet.

Why, then, would anyone want to invest so much time and money into something that can’t even talk?

To put it simply, puppies are awesome. There are plenty of reasons people give for getting a new puppy, but the main reason is this: Dogs really are man’s best friend.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for any animal lover, especially someone with a new puppy, just take care of the animal.

Buying gifts that bring your friends’ pets joy will also bring them joy.

Whether you buy dog parents a dog camera, something to help them out with all those initial new puppy supplies or if you just buy them a mug with her puppy’s face on it, or a custom pet portrait, they are going to love it.

There truly is no easier person to buy a gift for than a pet lover.
