What better way to include your best friend than a dog puzzle guest book alternative? This will definitely get you guests involved at any event. Whether it’s for a wedding, to commemorate your pet, birthday, or other events. It’s a romantic alternative to the traditional guest book. Your guests will enjoy seeing the puzzle take shape as they sign their pieces. It’s a sure crowd-pleaser! It’s truly a unique, fun, exciting, and offbeat way to collect signatures and wishes. Display it in your home or challenge yourself to put it back together years down the road. Like all of our guest books, it is always customized and unique to you. It will last a lifetime and you’ll adore reading all the kind words your loved ones wrote while reminiscing about the day.
Choose any breed from the drop-down list. If you don’t see your breed listed, select “Other” and write in the “Other breed” text area the breed you’d like, and we will custom-make this for you at no additional charge. It may take an extra week to complete your puzzle if your breed is not listed in the drop-down.
These are pretty big puzzles! The overall size of the puzzle will grow as more pieces are added. No two puzzle pieces are identical. The pieces are all different shapes, and are good-sized (2-3″). This allows plenty of space for guests to write messages. You can choose between the 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 200, or 250-piece options. All puzzles are handmade from quality maple wood. The size of the dog puzzles varies a lot with the chosen breed.
- The 25-piece is roughly 15 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
- The 50-piece is roughly 20 inches wide and 18 inches tall.
- The 75-piece is roughly 24 inches wide and 20 inches tall.
- The 100-piece is roughly 27 inches wide and 22 inches tall.
- The 125-piece is roughly 30 inches wide and 23 inches tall.
- The 150-piece is roughly 33 inches wide and 24 inches tall.
- The 200-piece is roughly 34 inches wide and 29 inches tall.
- The 250-piece is roughly 38 inches wide and 30 inches tall.
Specify the text you want to be engraved within the border. For example “Sara (heart) Brad July 10, 2022” or “Mr. & Mrs. Avery Est. 7-10-22” Anything written in parenthesis will be considered a symbol or icon. Usually, the engraved text is in three separate lines of center-aligned text: The first names on the top line, the last name in the middle line (made larger), and the date on the last line of text. But that doesn’t mean you have to do this. We can engrave whatever you want in that space, in as few or as many lines of text as you want. There is plenty of space here for engraving. We always format it to look best.
There are various fonts you can choose from for this item. They are included in one of the pictures, with a letter symbolizing each.

Fonts.google.com and dafont.com both have many free fonts for you to pick from.

To adhere to them permanently, you can use wood glue or super glue.

Our Daughter and Soon To Be Son-In-Law Decided to incorporate their Chocolate Lab Bourbon into their Wedding day with a personal and memorable Guest Puzzle from Havoly. We ALL couldn’t be happier or more impressed with how beautiful the piece is, the excellent customer service, and the thoughtfulness of Casey to include personalized mini-lab magnets with “Bourbon” imprinted on them. I was so touched!
I have already recommended Havoly to more Brides!!
Worth every penny and more… just beautiful!

We just received the puzzle today and I must say it is absolutely beautiful! It completely exceeded my expectations and I can’t thank Casey and the rest of the Havoly Crew enough for the perfect guestbook for our slightly dog themed wedding. They even included a few adorable magnets that looked just like our puzzle! We will proudly display this guestbook on our wedding day! I can’t wait to see it filled out with all of our friends and family signatures! Thanks again!

We received our product about 2.5 weeks after ordering it. An email was sent to us, notifying us when the package was out for delivery. The product comes well-packaged with fragile stickers written all over the outside. The entire puzzle is held together by a large piece of paper with painter’s masking tape attached to the back of the picture. You can tell that the front is finished, but the back is not finished at all; this is because when removing the masking tape, the outer layer of wood on the backside comes off with the tape. This custom-made piece was made with utmost care. You can smell the faint odor the stain gives off. We especially love the heart in the middle of our corgi that says our names in the middle with our wedding date. There is already hanging hardware installed in the back as well. They even sent us extra mini corgi laser cut wood shapes with magnets on the back to use for our fridge! Havoly went above and beyond the extra mile. We are tremendously pleased with this product and would recommend Havoly to any of our friends. We would also order from them again if the opportunity arises. Thank you so much!
