Here’s How To Create Art For Your Dog
If you have a dog, you don’t need anyone to tell you how to love your dog. They are furry friends, companions and the most loyal creatures on earth. We all love our dogs.

We offer custom pet portraits at affordable prices.

So you want to make art for your dog?
The first thing to realize is that the dog doesn’t care about the quality of the art. The second thing is that the dog probably doesn’t even care that it’s art.
A dog’s life is pretty simple, and dogs are pretty low key. They just want to sniff things, chase things, sleep, eat and drink (and maybe play with a ball or a stick). What else do you need?
A simpler way to think about it is that you’re making art for yourself. And there are two ways to do this. You can make something artistic that you hang on the wall or frame and put on your coffee table or desk at work. Or you can make something more functional, like a pillow or a toy.
And here’s how to do both:
1. Choose an aspect of your dog that inspires you. It could be something physical, like their coloring (like my love of black dogs) or their face (like my love of pugs) or their body shape (like my love of greyhounds). Or it could be something more subtle, like the way they move (like my love of the way my greyhound moves) or the kind of personality they have (
Dog art is a fun, easy and affordable way to decorate your home. There are many ways to create dog art, so for this blog post I’ll discuss my favorite method of creating dog art.
If you want to make dog art yourself, start off with the right supplies. You will need a sketching pencil and tracing paper. The tracing paper is optional but highly recommended because it is better than plain paper for making copies of your image, and it helps you to see your lines more clearly while you are drawing. If you have any interest in creating dog art, you should have these supplies already.
Tape the pencil to the end of a yardstick or other long object so that it doesn’t roll off your desk while you’re drawing. This will keep your hands free so you can hold the pencil steady as you draw, which will help keep your lines straight.
For this project I chose a picture of my dog, named Purrfection. She is an adorable mixed breed with some kind of beagle in her ancestry. She has big brown eyes and her fur is light brown on her back and white on her belly. She likes to jump up on our bed when we’re not looking and curl up
I’m no artist, but I can draw. I really enjoy doodling and drawing silly art for my dog. If you’re like me and like to draw for your dog too, here’s how to start.
First, you need a good sketchbook. I like this book from Moleskine called “The Large Paper Notebook” because it has bigger pages and more room to work with than the B6 size. You can get either the lined or unlined version depending on your preference. It also comes in grey which is better for light colored dogs because black absorbs light more than white does.
After choosing a good sketchbook, you’ll need to get some good pencils and pens. I use mostly Prismacolor Premier Soft Core Colored Pencils in their colored pencil sets (they come with a sharpener). They blend well and make it easy to get smooth gradients between colors. For pens, I use Pentel Tradio Stylo 0.7mm fine line pens like these Photo Black ones. They are waterproof and refillable so once you buy one extra pack of refills it will be much cheaper than buying new ink pens every time they run out of ink. You don’t have to use these exact brands
There is a lot of dog art out there in the world but it’s a little hard to find. I’m here to help you with that. I think you’ll want to print this out and take it with you when you go shopping for your dog’s art, lest you be sucked into buying something that is not art.
The following are things that are definitely not dog art. I’ve seen all of these in stores, online and in real life, and they are just not good:
1) Stuffed animals/squeaky toys. These are not art. There are no exceptions to this rule.
2) Anything made from real animal parts. Art is not a euphemism for taxidermy. Please don’t try to sell me an antique cat skull, thank you very much.
3) Paintings or drawings of dogs or anything else done by actual humans (unless the human is also a dog.) This also includes paintings or drawings of dogs done by other dogs, though this time with the caveat “unless the other dog is also a human.”
4) Dog hair wreaths or any other dog hair crafts. The only exception to this rule is if the dog in question has died or gone missing and you would like people to help
I have no idea why it is, but I get a lot of questions about how to draw dogs. Here are some tips.

When you open the door, she’ll jump up on you, stick her chest out, and beg for a belly rub. Let her down easy by scratching her under the chin first. But don’t touch below that; it’s her “happy place,” and this is a very dominant dog.
Her tail will wag enthusiastically as you pet her belly, but slow down if she starts licking your hands. That’s a sign of submission, so let your hand linger there while you talk to her in a soothing voice. Don’t get into a tickle fight with this little pipsqueak! She’ll start squealing and acting like she doesn’t know you anymore. When you’re done petting, step back and allow your dog to get off the bed by herself. She’ll probably plop down right in front of the door to the bedroom and stare at you patiently until you come back out with her leash.
Do not allow your dog on furniture or beds unless invited or commanded to do so. It’s a sign of dominance that must be earned through submission. You’ll know when she wants to join you: Her ears will perk up as she sits next to your chair, observing you with rapt attention from under lowered lids until either invited or commanded to
