Is your loved one celebrating her first Mother’s Day with her beloved pooch and you’re hoping to surprise her with the best Mother’s Day gifts in Sydney for dog mums? We’re celebrating all mums in Australia - dog mums included! Surprise your loved one and celebrate the love for her pooch with an awesome Mother’s Day gift in Sydney that she won’t see coming! Rather than popping down to the local pet shop to buy something for the dog, celebrate Mum with a fun pet experience she’ll treasure forever instead.
For many women, dogs are their children. While they might not be able to have their own kids, this doesn’t mean they should have to miss out on Mother’s Day. This year, show her how much she is loved by her nearest and dearest by treating her to a puppy-friendly present.
When a puppy comes into its new home, its mum and dad become its pack, and it will stay loyal to them forever. But of course, caring for a puppy can be tricky, especially when Mum needs to try and understand what her little furball needs when it’s barking at her!
With so many dog products to purchase these days, why not celebrate the love between Mum and her pooch with a dog art experience she’ll love? Discover various art classes and workshops where Mum can create her own pieces of art (using her dog as the subject) that she can keep forever. Let’s help you explore plenty of gifts for her this Mother’s Day in Sydney.
Why not start Mother’s Day with the dog in tow at her favourite dog park. We recommend heading over to Sydney dog park in St Peters and grabbing a coffee at the park to watch her baby have fun frolicking with its friends. When the pooch has burnt off some energy, head to Mum’s favourite café for breakfast with some special dog treats at the ready. Then, continue the day with the ultimate Mother's Day lunch with your friends or family.
1. Sew a dog bandana class for beginners
It’s so easy to get carried away with the thousands of dog products that can be bought from the shops these days. From bow ties, hair bows, jazzy harnesses, costumes and so much more, Mum could end up paying a small fortune. Instead, take Mum to a fun dog bandana making class in Sydney so she can learn to make her own unique dog accessories.
In this two-hour dog workshop in Sydney run by Sydney Creative in Redfern, mum will learn how to make her own bandanas for her furry friend. Even if she’s never tried sewing before, mum will learn loads of tips and tricks for creating her own unique bandanas for her dog!
She’ll be able to practice making the bandanas on some scrap material before putting her skills to use by using a beginners sewing machine. Learning how to use a sewing machine is a practical skill that could come in handy for fixing up clothing or other materials. She’ll also learn how to assemble a printed pattern, discover how to use different tools for a cleaner finish, and she’ll learn how to sew straight and curvy lines.
Our local expert teacher will help build her confidence using a sewing machine and inspire to create more unique custom made dog accessories and outfits when she gets home. Wait until she takes her fur baby to the dog park next time! And expect other dog pawrents to ask where she bought that cool bandana from...
