How to Draw Dog Paw Prints

Drawing dog paws if fun and easy and can be drawn for just about any occasion. You can draw dog paws and use them to create invitations, party favours and decorations for a kid's party or add them as a creative decor in your child's room. Dog paws are also very popular when it comes to showing support for your favourite sports team. Drawing dog paws is simple and can be done in all different colours, sizes and shapes.

  1. Draw the pad of the dog paw. Don't worry about getting it perfect. Just like dog paws vary in size and shape, this drawing can be altered to any size and shape you choose.

  2. Sketch in the 2 centre toes of the dog paw. Because dogs have 4 toes, doing these 2 toes first helps to ensure that you will have room for all 4 toes when the drawing is complete. Toes can be drawn in different shapes, sizes and positions, so don't be afraid to play around with the toes a little bit.

  3. Add the last 2 toes to complete the dog paw drawing. Again, don't be afraid to experiment with different shapes, sizes and positions. As long as the toes are positioned somewhere along the top of the paw, your drawing will look fine.

  4. Outline the dog paw once it is complete and erase any pencil marks you may see. Outlining the drawing makes it darker and easier to see. You can use anything from markers to paints to crayons.

  5. Tip

    Add a personal touch by adding colour, a pattern or words to the finished design.
