Custom dog socks are a way to make sure your dog is with you everywhere you go.
They’re also the most adorable conversation starter (“hey, have you seen my new socks?”).
Whether you want them for yourself or to give to your partner or friend as a Christmas gift, it’s a great way to incorporate dogs into your wardrobe.
In this post, we’re featuring 6 of the best custom dog socks on Amazon.
Uploading Your Photo
We’ve read the reviews for many customized socks on Amazon and one thing is clear: The quality of your sock depends on the quality of your photo. All of these options require you to upload a picture of your dog. It should be a high-quality close-up. Since the printers can only work with what they have, if you send in a blurry photo cropped out of a big picture, don’t be surprised if you’re not happy with the results. If you don’t have a good pic to send in, it’s worth it to spend a few extra minutes taking a photo specifically for your socks. When choosing a photo, keep these tips in mind:
- Close up. Thinking of cropping your dog’s face out of a large family photo? Think again. Blowing up that small spot can lead to a pixelated, blurry photo. Instead, take a close up photo of your dog’s face.
- Straight-ahead photo. It should go without saying that your socks will look the cutest if they feature your dog’s entire face. While side profiles will work, they won’t capture your dog’s full personality.
- Happy dog. You can choose a photo of your dog wearing a blank expression. However, if you’re taking a photo specifically for your socks, we recommend holding out until you snap a really good one. To get your dog smiling with his tongue out, try holding a treat above the camera lens or saying an exciting word, such as “treat,” “cookie,” or the name of his favorite person.
- Lighting. When taking your dog’s picture, ensure the lighting is good so you can fully see him when his image is printed. For best results, you can use natural lighting or a light in your house. Then, point lamp light towards him or use a smartphone attachment light.

Pawsative Ruffview: “I received my order two weeks early and they were even better than I expected. The quality was great and the likeness to our dog was absolutely perfect! I had purchased these socks for my daughter after we sadly had to put one of our beloved dogs (“her” dog for 14 years) to sleep just two weeks before. I intended to save these for her birthday in a month, but I could NOT wait to give them to her. She cried, but they were tears of joy this time. She was thrilled with them for the obvious sentimental reasons as well as the quality of the socks and the image. This was a great purchase that has helped us start to mend our broken hearts and celebrate our faithful companion.”

Used my iPhone X to take the pictures of the dogs.”
