Inspiring Dog Logo Designs

dog pet logo design examples

The dog being considered as man’s best friend is a great subject for logos and now with an unprecedented explosion in new pet business markets, the need for dog logos designs are on the rise. Dogs are well-loved by many people because they perform many roles for them such as unyielding friendship, protection and most especially, accompanying them in their everyday lives as their domestic pet partners. In this post, we want to give you some fine examples of how dog images can be used to create logos for a particular type of business. Actually, dog images can be pretty versatile – funny for some toy brands, strong and powerful for security services or sport clubs, stylish for dance parties, and loyal for law agencies, for example. A properly chosen and illustrated dog logo will, definitely, serve its purpose, like a faithful dog serves his master.

Here is our collection of some inspiring dog logo designs which are unique that we have come across and have long admired. We couldn’t help but to also throw in a few of our own pet logo designs in as well. So, if you’re on the lookout for a dog logo design or any pet themed logo design, take a moment to browse our own portfolio and come ‘bark at us’. Woof!

Here is a delicious peanut butter biscuit recipe. Have you ever met a dog who doesn’t like peanut butter? Neither have we. That’s why these peanut butter dog biscuits with molasses is a great. Even though dogs don’t need added sugar to make their treats delicious, molasses is a natural choice. Usually, ingredients found in commercial biscuits are typically called natural if they are processed to the least amount. However, unlike refined sugar, blackstrap molasses retains vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron. So, you can rest easy knowing that these home made dog biscuits will be fresh and healthy.

So, did you make this recipe? What was your experience? Did your dog gobble it up or take a polite sniff and walk away? Now don’t let Fido hog this recipe all up. Be sure to share this blog entry with other dog treat aficionados or better yet, please send in your pics showing your favorite pooch eating these delicious treats to share with our dog blog audience. We’d sure love to show em’ off! <3

Beautiful Pet Photography for Pets with Disabilities Project

Carli Davidson Pets With Disabilities

After coming across’s blog showcasing the talented pet photographer Carli Davidson, we just had to share these amazing and honoring images. Carli Davidson may be known for her awesome Shake series where she uses high speed photography to capture dogs in motion, but recently she’s turned her attention to another project that deserves some much needed attention. Pets with Disabilities was an idea that started two years ago while Davidson was walking alongside the Canon Beach in Oregon.

As she tells us, “There was this totally beautiful German shepherd in a wheelchair playing fetch with its owner. It was so happy, a dog doing what dogs do, totally undeterred by its disability. I felt inspired by the whole scenario. The owner made this choice out of love, to do a little extra work every day to make sure his friend was happy and comfortable.

“I thought a lot about this pair in the following weeks, and decided I wanted to create a project showcasing differently abled pets, telling their stories in order to show the world that they are happy, thriving companions. They are not sad, they are not in pain, and the owners and animals continue to be of great value to one another.”

All of the dogs pictured here are from Portland, Oregon. Davidson started this project by asking people on Facebook to submit their handicapped dogs as models and word of mouth has spread the idea so far that she now has people approaching her on a regular basis, asking her if their dogs could be added to the series. Davidson is currently working on a book.

What does this photographer want others to get out of this series? “I really hope that what people take away from these stories is information to make decisions for their own pets, an appreciation for the resilience of all animals, and ultimately a sense of normalcy from the photos and stories,” she says. “Technology continues to advance at a rapid rate, and our relationship and compassion towards animals continues to evolve. I think this book is simply following a natural path towards a greater acceptance of these pets.”

Corgi: Duncan has a spinal disorder that many corgis are prone to. Even though he can’t use his hind legs he is still extremely active. He throws toys across the room for himself to fetch, and his favorite treat is whipped cream.

Black Chihuahua, Inky: is a Chihuahua that was rescued from a hoarder. Despite his early abuse he is incredibly good-natured and loving, and is even used as a therapy dog.

French bulldog, Little Man Rue: is paralyzed from the waist down due to a spinal disorder. He is a very active and happy dog nonetheless. Little Man lives with his owner and another French bulldog, Sweet Pea.

Pug and Chihuahua, Diego: the blind Chihuahua and Buddy Nixon. Diego uses Buddy as a seeing eye dog by following the tapping of his nails as he walks around new environments.

Poodle, Ramen Noodle: lost both of his arms in separate accidents before he was two years old. Only three weeks after losing the second arm he was up and running on his hind legs. He also has a front wheelchair to get around outdoors, but prefers to walk on his own.

Boston Terrier: Taken from Carli’s Facebook page, where she explains that this image is from her ‘Face of the Day Series’: Petunia from last January! Her very first official dog photo shoot for her new pet photography business on January 25th 2010!
