Custom Dog Portraits

If you have spent hours searching for an unusual, thoughtful gift for a person who seems to have everything, transforming a dog photo into a digital dog portrait is a brilliant idea. As pet owners, we know just how much a dog means to a home and we promise that a dog portrait will be the perfect interior accessory.

We work with the most stunning felt marked Tintoretto Gesso paper which compliments your dog portrait beautifully. This is available in two thicknesses, which has a subtle difference, the felt mark is ever so slightly deeper on the 300gsm in comparison to the 250gsm. You can read more about the paper on our paper guide page, if you have any further questions, please get in touch.

Your dog portrait is totally unique to you, you may choose to have a simple light grey watercolour behind your pet or include the original background that appears in the photograph. This is a great idea if your pet is sitting in its favourite spot or running through a bluebell meadow to add some personality to portrait of your dog.

Alternatively, we can do an artistic mix of both of those options, this is recommended if your pet is photographed with a slight covering, ie blanket is covering its paw or your pet is laying in long grass.

Whichever you decide, our creative team will work their magic on your personalised dog portrait.

A dog portrait memorial print is a wonderful alternative to a traditional photograph, and we will capture their unique characteristics and spirit in a creative way, making our pet art a touching tribute to the memory of your dog. You can choose to add a little ‘In loving memory‘ text above your beloved dogs name and even add a special message below, making this a wonderful memorial keepsake.

We pride ourselves on our high-quality prints, and we do need high resolution images to ensure this is achieved. If possible, you could take a new image using the highest resolution setting option on your camera or smartphone.

We know that in many cases it might not be possible to send a brand-new image across, so please send any potential photographs to our team and we will do our best to help.
