Being a dog walker is not as easy a job as it sounds. Sure, you get paid to soak up the sun while you bond with other people’s doggos, but rainy days and rough terrain can make even the happiest pupper a sad little doofus. Even hanging out in a room of 30+ dogs all day at daycare has its challenges.

Here are 15 thoughtful items your favorite dog caretaker will absolutely love you (and your pup) for.
