Product Description

Dog Puzzle Guest Book Alternative

What better way to include your best friend then a dog/puppy puzzle guest book alternative? This truly is a unique, fun, and exciting way to involve guests at any event. It’s a sure crowd-pleaser! Whether it’s for a wedding, to commemorate your pet, reunion, birthday, anniversary, fundraiser, or any other event, the guests will love being involved in the day being recorded for a lifetime. Frame it and hang it on your wall, or challenge yourself by putting it back together down the road.

All of these puzzles come with a finished heart puzzle piece with the text you want engraved on it.

For weddings, people typically use names and a date. You may want your dog’s name engraved here. Whatever you want, we will engrave on the heart piece. Typically it’s in two lines of text. We suggest using the least amount of text possible, so we can engrave the letters as large as possible. If there is a lot of text, it will have to be made small and more difficult to read. We always align the text in the center and make the date smaller than the names (if that is what is to be engraved).

These are good-sized puzzles! The puzzle pieces are all different in shape and size, and decently sized. This allows a good amount of space for guests to write on, certainly more than just a name or two. You can choose from the 25-, 50-, 75-, 100-, 150-, 200- and 250-piece dog puzzles.

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.

Font Choices:

There are various fonts you can choose from for this item. They are included in one of the pictures, with a letter symbolizing each. If you are on a mobile device, you can scroll through the pictures. Choose which font you prefer for your order from the drop-down list. You can also select “Other” if you have your own font in mind and it is free for me to download. Just be sure to leave the link to where we can download it in the Notes section during checkout. and both have good selections of free fonts.

Engraving (Personalized Piece):

Make sure to leave a note of exactly what you want engraved.  You will find a text area to fill out on this product page. In the case of the main item pictured, this would be “Daniel & Sammy October 20th, 2018.” Anything you enclose in parentheses will be considered a symbol or icon; for instance, you may want “Tanya (heart) Jason.” You may also choose something like “Ziggy (heart)” or “Ziggy 2008-2018.” Whatever you choose, we will engrave it to look as good as possible, typically in 2 lines of text (but sometimes 3), always center-aligned.


The border adds a great look to the puzzles. They are also cut from quarter-inch maple ply and coated with a dark brown finish to match the heart within the puzzle. The border, or frame, keeps the pieces securely in place. It also has padded hangers attached on the back, 16″ on center, allowing the completed puzzle easily to be hung on the wall. If you decide to hang it on the wall, you’ll need to secure the pieces in place so they don’t fall out. This can be done in a number of ways; we suggest glue dots or double-sided tape, or for a permanent bond, super glue or wood glue.

All of the puzzles are cut from quality quarter-inch maple plywood. Nearly any pen works for writing on them. Check out the video “What pen should I use for writing on wooden pieces?” – HERE.  We suggest a regular bic pen, as this won’t bleed.  Regular sharpies tend to bleed; however, we have not experienced any bleeding with an ultra fine-tip sharpie or sharpie pen. A couple of times in the past, people have told us these pens did bleed slightly,, although we have never experienced this directly. All wood is different, so test out different pens you may like before making a final selection. A blank piece of wood to test pens on is included with every order.

*We will include the instruction sign telling guests to sign a piece for no charge if you share a photograph of your puzzle on our Facebook page and/or a picture tagging us on instagram #havoly #havolydesigns Please post either directly on the havoly facebook page or as a post of your own, tagging our page. First, you should like the page and let us know that you did so by leaving us a note in the note section which you’ll find during checkout (let us know the name you liked with if it’s different from the name on the order). We love your kind words and the shared pictures. We thank you for your integrity and we greatly appreciate you helping this small business. 🙂

Please check out the other puzzles we make. We have an elegant bordered look for tree puzzles, and also one for heart-shaped puzzles. All come in a variety of sizes. If you want something even bigger than what you find listed here on the website, shoot me a message. We do custom work all the time, so don’t hesitate to ask.

We also sell other event items such as drop top guest books and other shaped puzzles. Check out all of our guest book alternatives.

    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!

    Photos to be posted After the BIG Day!!! No Spoilers Here!

    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!
