Dog mug guide for UK buyers

They say you’re either a cat person or a dog person; luckily for you, we have mugs to please both camps. Our dog collection mugs are the dogs… paws. We’ve put together this handy guide to give you all the options you’ll need to purchase a dog mug in the UK.

What is a dog mug?

A dog mug is just as it sounds: a ceramic mug decorated to show something related to our furry, four-legged friends. Dog mugs can be a simple design, a cute doggie slogan or even ones with the handle fashioned into a tail.

You could go all out with a mug shaped like a dog complete with pointy ears. Or buy a cute or sentimental mug that a friend or relative will cherish for years to come.

Who buys dog mugs?

Dog mugs are an excellent gift for anyone who has or loves dogs. They are an ideal gift for birthdays, stocking fillers or simply to give for the sake of giving.

Sometimes you see the perfect mug that you have to get for someone you know because it matches them so perfectly. If you’re struggling to find a gift for a friend or family member, one of our mugs is a great way to show that you’ve put some thought into their gift, without putting pressure on your bank balance.

We understand that shopping for the random co-worker you’ve only spoken to three times can be stressful. Still, our mugs are great for the office Secret Santa, as they’re a universal gift that’s cheap, practical and will fit into the Secret Santa budget.

Mugs for dog parents


Most of us know someone who treats their dog like a baby, so our My dog lets me sleep in the bed mug is an ideal gift to make the title official. Or our Would you like to see a photo of my dog mug would make the perfect gift for the person who didn’t want a dog at first, but now sits on the floor so the dog can have the best seat in the house.

Novelty Dog mugs

Novelty mugs of any kind always go down well, but add a cute dog into the mix and you’re onto a winner. Look through our dog mug collection or find novelty mugs online.

Breed-specific dog mugs

If the person you’re buying for is crazy about chihuahuas or cuckoo for collies, a breed-specific mug will make a thoughtful gift. We stock Magic Labrador mugs in multiple different colours, so you can personalise it to the labrador they have, making it extra special.

If dogs are not your thing, how about one of our sloth mugs?
