If you're looking for the perfect gift for your favorite dog lover (even if that happens to be you), a dog jigsaw puzzle is always a great idea. Not only does a dog puzzle give them something fun to do--it also leaves them with a beautiful display piece that they can mount and hang on the wall. And while you probably knew that you could get a puzzle with a specific breed on it, you may not have known that you could get a puzzle with your very own dog on it!

Customized Wooden Dog Puzzles

If you're looking for a puzzle that is a fitting tribute to a particular dog (or dog lover), a wooden puzzle is a great way to go. Wooden puzzles not only look great, but they have a nicer feel when you're putting them together and they're much more durable than cardboard puzzles. This is particularly true if you want to get a puzzle with a photo on it; custom cardboard puzzles simply don't cut it (no pun intended).

There are a few types of customized wooden dog puzzles out there. The most basic is a puzzle that shows a certain breed of dog. Even though they're wooden, these puzzles are usually available with either paintings or photographs on them. And with certain puzzle manufacturers, wooden puzzles always come with special "whimsy" pieces that are actually shaped like a dog!

If you want a truly customized gift, it's actually possible to send a photograph of your dog to the puzzle manufacturer, and to have them make a puzzle out of that picture. This is a great way to commemorate your favorite hound: the photograph is actually mounted on the wooden backing and will last for years. You can even have the dog's name included on the photograph!
