The design is created for you, but you can still change the name, dollar amount, and message on the card.

This is just a fun gift card with a subtle dog theme and I like it. For the minimalist dog lover who doesn’t need to see a cartoon pup to be impressed, this repeating pattern is the perfect choice. I would write a “paws” pun on the greeting card like “You are PAWS-itively Awesome” or “It’s time to PAW-ty for your birthday.”

Oh, and the Paws gift card design comes in multiple colors. Here are your options:

5. Petco Dog Gift Card

Well you can’t talk about stores and dogs without thinking of the iconic Target dog found on one of our most popular gift cards. Target gift cards give dog lovers the option to redeem the gift card for a pet product or use the card to buy clothes, groceries, household items and more. I am not really a dog person, but I am certainly a Target person…so this gift card is a win in my book!

10. Make Your Own DOGGONE Gift Card

Lastly, nearly ever gift card list I create has to include my favorite gift card of all–the personalized gift card. I love the flexibility you get with open loop gift cards–they can be used online, in stores and virtually anywhere that Visa and Mastercard debit cards are accepted. You get that flexibility AND you get to choose the picture that goes on the gift card! This is my favorite type of gift card to give because the recipient always (I mean ALWAYS) is so surprised to see a picture they recognize on the gift card. And it’s so easy to make your own gift card. In fact, the hardest thing about making a personalized gift card is deciding what picture to use.

A Question About Gifts for Dogs

So here’s a question I have for you and a quick confession. I’m not really a dog lover. I didn’t grow up around dogs so I’m not all that comfortable around dogs either. But many of my friends are dog owners and they treat their pups like family. So when I suggest gift cards for dogs, well, obviously I don’t expect you to actually get a gift card for dog. Instead, I’m thinking these are gift cards for people who love dogs. Am I wrong here? If you are a dog owner, the question I have is…do you buy gifts for your pets beyond food and chew toys? Or do you just pick up these things when you’re out shopping for other pet necessities? I’m curious.

If you have other suggestions for dog-related gift cards, please put them in the comments below. I’d love to add to this list to ensure all you dog-loving-fur-baby-pet-people are happy. I’m not one of you, but I applaud you.

Happy Gift Carding!
