Mother’s Day is upon us and it’s the perfect time to spoil that dog mom in your life (because really … she should be spoiled EVERY day!) As a proud #dogmom to three pups, I’ve hand-picked some of my absolute favorite gifts for those dog mamas in your life. These options are high-quality, well-reviewed, and will bring a smile to every kind of dog mom. I hope you enjoy these special gems as much as I do. Happy shopping!
Not only did I hand-select each of these gifts, but we also tested some of our top picks right here at Rover HQ. Take a look.
Dog mom gear is all about celebrating the bond between a fur mama and her furbaby, so nothing is too much: paw print purse, “dog mom AF” tank top, “must love dogs” doormat? Yes, yes, and yes. Family members will just have to get on the dog decor bandwagon.

Dog Love is Pure Love
Dog owners increasingly consider themselves dog parents, and by extension, their dogs are a part of the family. Here at Rover, we get it—we’re obsessed with our fur babies, too.
A new report from Rover, called “The Real Power of Dog Love,” explores the loving relationship modern dog owners have with their pets. The report found that devoted dog people gaze lovingly into their dog’s eyes (67 percent), cuddle their dog more often than their partner (47 percent) and would even consider ending a relationship if their partner didn’t like dogs or was severely allergic (53 percent).
Scientific research also indicates that dog love isn’t one-sided, and dogs are equally as eager to bond and connect with humans. According to Phil Tedeschi, professor, and researcher on the human-animal bond at the University of Denver and member of Rover’s Dog People Panel, our loyal canine companions are constantly working to understand humans and fit into our lives.
Tedeschi notes that dogs watch and wait for moments to gaze and connect with humans. This eye contact stimulates bonding and the “love” hormone, oxytocin, which has human health benefits like lowering blood pressure and reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.
