You know how we like to keep it dog-centric around here! Adult coloring is all the rage, but it’s that much more fun when the subject matter is doggos galore. We went out and found 10 of the hottest new adult coloring books, all filled with dogs, for your stress-busting needs.
1. Lisa Frank Puppy Love
I spent the first half of the 90’s coveting all things Lisa Frank, so I’m pretty stoked that she’s having another cultural moment. For the dog loving 90’s kid whose mom wouldn’t get them the Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper.
2. Doug the Pug
This coloring book celebrates internet sensation Doug the Pug, each page depicting Doug on one of his adventures.
3. Colorful Dogs
This one is a little wild and I like it. With complex illustrations that incorporate intricate shapes (like Louis Wain, but with dogs!), Colorful Dogs should keep you busy for a while.
4. Lovely Dogs
Sharpen up your 96-pack of colored pencils for this collection of realistic coloring pages. You can have a lot of fun with shading here.
5. Dogs: Color By Number
Take all the guesswork out of which color goes where and color by numbers! So soothing.
6. Swearing Dogs
Putting the “adult” in adult coloring books, this naughty collection features cute dogs and swear words. Not for sharing with your 7 year-old nephew. Real effing fun.
7. Adorable Corgis
I don’t know about you, but I have a soft spot for corgis. The perky face, the fluffy, wiggly buns—what’s not to love? Features fun illustrations by Jean Tumbagahan.
8. Peaceful Pit Bulls
Another breed-specific book! This one features adorable illustrations of varying levels of difficulty, so whether you want to get super-focused and specific or just zone out and scribble, this book’s got you covered.
9. Dog Breeds
A roundup of dog breeds for your coloring pleasure! Each coloring page is on a separate sheet, so feel free to pull out your faves and tape them to the fridge.
10. Unique and Exotic Pets
Okay, this one doesn’t have any dogs (unless you count raccoons, or as I call them “trash-dog bear cousins”), but who doesn’t like to mix it up from time to time? Apply your freshly honed coloring skills to these illustrations of sugar gliders, guinea pigs, coatimundi, prairie dog (sort of a dog!), tarantulas, iguanas, and many more.
You ready to get to scribbling? Line up your coloring implements of choice and prepare to immerse yourself in color and dogs. Sounds like a perfect way to chill.
