Whether you share your home with a dog of your own or you simply love canines, or if you're shopping for the dog lover in your life, adding an art print to a room can be a great way to elevate any space. Prints are less expensive and more commonly reproduced works by artists that allow more people to access their work as they are often sold in a range of sizes and costs. Shopping for art is fun and can instantly upgrade your space so long as the piece fits in with the rest of your things, both in terms of style and size. We came up with a list of art prints for dog lovers in a range of styles, sizes, prices, and framing options, so (hopefully) anyone can find the print for them, or connect with a new artist that they love.
What to consider when purchasing art prints
Style: Shopping for art can be so much fun as it offers another opportunity for a person to showcase their personal style and taste. We've attempted to curate a list here with a variety of styles, so if you see something that interests you but isn't quite on point, check out the seller or artist to browse more of their work.

Size: If you're shopping for yourself, the choice of sizing is totally your call. If you're shopping for someone else, however, presenting them with a huge print, framed or unframed, may present unseen complications, especially if they're a renter, or if you're not 100% sure of their personal style or tastes. When gifting, smaller is usually better, and standard print sizes, like 8 by 10 inches or 5 by 7 inches, will make framing the easiest.
Customizing: For anyone looking for a piece of art that reflects their own dog, you can seek out a custom portrait. Etsy is a great place for having custom pieces made as you can usually just upload a photo of your pup and let the artist take it from there. If you're looking to gift a custom print to a friend, silhouette styles can be a great way to go about this, as are line drawings.
