What are some Dog present ideas?

I haven't seen my dogs in a long time and i've had my cousin take care of them for me while i was gone. My cousin can't seem to click with my dogs so i wanted to leave them with something special before i have to leave again that will help them remember me by.

Make them a very sturdy chew or tug toy with some piece of old sturdy clothing (jeans, sweatshirt) that you have worn for a couple days or so, so that it will carry your scent on it for quite a while.
One good way is cut off legs or sleeves. Roll them up tight and knot it several times, as tight as you can. How big the final product is depends on the size of the dogs. For smaller dogs use less fabric. Be careful not to have fraying cut edges on the outside, though, as they might chew and swallow the unraveling threads (not good). Tuck or sew fraying edges inside before rolling/knotting.
Plus, while you are gone, you could make new toys at intervals (again with your scent on them) and mail them to your cousin to give to the dogs.
Caution your cousin to watch the dogs when playing with them, to make sure they don't just eat them!
This way, when you get back, they'll recognize your scent at the very least. That's how they know us best, after all. :)
But if you raised them, they'll probably remember you, anyway, if you're not gone for too long (like years).

Making them a dog bed out of your old (scented) clothing, and even stuffed with it, could work, too. :)

Both great ideas. Your scent will be comforting. Remind your cousin not to wash the stuff with your scent!

You must be in the service? or in jail? Why else would you be gone for a long time and are going to be gone again?. Why do you think their your dogs?
Dogs love the person that feeds them and loves them each day. If you had a long relationship with the dogs before you left, they will never forget you, they will always know you. Other then some worn clothing of yours for them to sleep on, what would remind them of you?. SORRY!
