Who doesn’t love coloring? Even as a middle-age woman I find it so incredibly relaxing to snuggle up in my favorite pj’s with a glass of milk and some cookies – and of course my daughter and dog and color away. Then there is the smell of crayons that takes me back about 40 years to a happy time when life was easier – we all need a bit of that right? But whether you use crayons, markers or colored pencils – each of these coloring books that feature a variety of dog designs are sure to bring a smile to your face.

But I know when I was a kid there was no such thing as a dog coloring book — we had flowers, we had cartoons (which may have had dogs in it), we had everything else but there was never anything that was all dogs all the time! If there was I would imagine I would have been one horribly annoying kid until I got one.

But now there are just so many options out there that both older kids and adults will absolutely love! If you are a dog lover – and someone who loves to color, then below is your dream list of coloring books. Some are more challenging then others – but the skill of each of the artists who designed these books is off the charts!

Here are a few of our favorite coloring books featuring nothing but dogs!

Doug The Pug Coloring Book

Umm, yeah – this is a thing! We know Dog the Pug is pretty darn popular but when we saw they had a coloring book we kind of chuckled! A perfect gift for the pug lover in your life – this coloring book is sure to put the kid back into even the grumpiest adult. The book features illustrations of Doug eating his way around the world. Join him on his adventure as he goes coasts all over several countries to explore the local food.

Not as quite as intricate as some of the other books on our list – we could not resist the cuteness, and educational factor in this adorable coloring book.

Amazing Dogs Coloring Book

A gorgeous breed inspired coloring book that has intricate details but allows the breed of the dog to be easily seen. Although not every dog breed could be accounted for in the book – we were thrilled to see an American Staffy in their, so thank you to the author for that. Every page is unique and has a theme so you are challenged to color something different ever time!

Dazzling Dogs Coloring Book

With the happy smiling pooch on the cover we knew this one had to be included in our list! Doggy portraits that are accented by a variety of patterns from florals to paisley as well as whimsical elements that tell a dog’s tale. Some may feel this particular book is a little too “teeny bopper” with its usage of flowers and hearts – but who doesn’t need more of that these days?
