Our Favorite Dog Pajamas for Dog Owners
The French Bulldog has been rising in the ranks throughout recent years, which must mean that there are a lot of Frenchie lovers out there. FYI, they’re the fourth most popular dog in the states. These pajamas, with the saying “Pardon my Frenchie,” are not only made of soft 100% cotton but also represent the fun and silly French Bulldog attitude. The PJs come in six sizes from small to XXX-large. Even better, they’re machine washable and dryable, made in the USA, and come as a set with both the T-shirt and pants. One purchaser of these PJs says she has more than one of the “Pardon my Frenchie” T-shirts, which in itself, says enough. Price: $44.00
Softest Dog Bathrobe
One of the best ways to celebrate your dog is to spend quality time with them. If you’re a Bulldog owner, or any dog owner for that matter, lounging around the house together is probably one of your favorite pastimes. With this microfleece robe, you can lounge around and display your breed pride for America’s fifth most popular canine. This robe comes in three colors: Deep smoke, pink raspberry, and marshmallow. It’s made of 100% polyester fleece, embroidered in the USA, and is machine washable. For your lounging convenience, this dog product has two patch pockets, as well as a fabric belt secured with loops, so you’re good-to-go wearing this robe for a full lazy day. Choose from small/medium or large/x-large, as well as several other breeds (besides the Bulldog). Customers who have purchased this robe say it’s soft, high-quality, and the embroidery is well-done. Many reviewers also report this robe makes a fantastic gift. Price: $64.99
Best Dog Art Home Decor
Remind any guests you have to your home to “wipe their paws” before entering with this slate sign. Digitally reproduced from original artwork, this sign shows the beauty of the Beagle, America’s sixth most popular breed. Just like the coffee mug at the start of this post, you have your pick of five outdoorsy background scenes: Beach, field, lake, mountain, or yard. This work of art comes complete with a leather strap for hanging, and the best part, there are more than 100 breeds for you to pick from. Purchasers of this dog product say the tile is gorgeous, best quality, and a good representation of the breed. Although customers say the sign is easy to hang, some also write that it’s heavy, so you’ll want to be sure to hang it securely and carefully. Price: $49.99
Our Favorite Dog Note Cards
Even in the age of computers and text messages, there’s always a good time to send a handwritten note. Share your mutual love of Poodles (or one of over 100 other breeds) with a friend and write them a letter on these note cards. You can purchase a pack of eight or 24, and each pack contains cards, envelopes, as well as seals (which also are adorned with your favorite breed). Reviewers say these note cards are beautiful with both superior paper quality and adorable illustration. Price: $24.99 for 8, $45.99 for 24

You can never have too many T-shirts — especially if you’re adding a Rottweiler shirt to your wardrobe. This T-shirt is made of 100% preshrunk cotton, has double-needle stitching throughout, and a seamless rib at the neck. The shirt features a USA embroidered portrait of a Rottweiler (the eighth favorite breed in the states or you can pick a different breed to feature). The T-shirt comes in sizes small through 3x-large and five different colors. If you’re looking for a more fitted tee, this embroidered shirt also has a women’s variety, with a scoop neck and cap sleeves. This shirt is perfect for everyday wear, even more so on National Purebred Dog Day! Reviewers of this product say that it makes an excellent birthday gift, is made well and looks great. One reviewer also comments that the shirt runs small, so you’ll want to make sure you double check the sizing chart when purchasing. Price: $25.99
