The Best Gifts for the Dog Dad in Your Life

Posted by Erin Ballinger

How do you repay the guy who wakes up at the crack of dawn to let the dog out, whatever the weather? You shower him with gifts, of course. This Father’s Day, show your love and appreciation for the dog dad in your life. These pup-centric presents will show the man of the house just how much he means to his two- and four-legged family.

If Dad is the king of the grill, equip him with the right gear for the job. Start with the perfect apron for dog-lovers, which you can customize with the pup of your choice. If you really want him to cook like a boss, this paw brand will put just the right finishing touch on his steak, or the burger he’s making for his furry friend.

After another bad night’s sleep with Fido sprawling over his legs, Dad’s going to need some liquid energy to get him ready to head out to the dog park. This customizable mug lets him know how much he means to his canine companion. And if he likes taking his morning Joe on his commute, get him a stainless steel travel mug that reminds him who’s waiting for him at home. Pair it with a bag of Hugo Coffee, which donates a portion of every sale to canine rescues.

Beer lovers will appreciate a cool t-shirt that lets everybody know who papa’s fave drinking buddy is. He’ll fit right in at the dog-friendly beer garden. If Dad prefers to hang at home with his furry drinking buddy, score him this stylish, canine-themed bottle opener, which can also crack open a dog beer for Fido!

Active dogfathers love nothing more than being outside with their best friends. Dad can keep his pug snug on a summer hike with a pet carrier backpack. More serious athletes (and pups who don’t need to be carried along for the ride) will love this Adjustable Dog Running Belt by Kurgo.

5. A “Pawfect” Match

Some pooches and their humans tend to look like each other over time. If that describes your best friends, the only logical thing to do is shop for matching outfits. A subtle nod to Dad and dog’s similar fashion tastes is this t-shirt and bandana combo. But if you want to take it to the next level, these matching shirts really say it all.

6. For The “Pawsh” Man
