With Father’s Day just around the corner you may feel stumped on what to get that sweet man that always picks up after your pup’s mess, spends hours cuddling him on the couch, and takes him for potty walks in the pouring rain.
The following gifts celebrate the unique bond your man and dog share – after all they both pass out after a good meal, like smelly things, and pass gas without remorse. Here’s to the Dog Dads!
1. The Dog Father.
This classic black shirt combines your man’s two favorite things – the quintessential The GodFather series and his favorite canine. They even come in different breeds. $18-22, www.amazon.com
2. Brews For Two.
This gift is perfect, because it allows your dog dad to share a drink with his best bud. The gift basket comes a bottle of Bowser Beer, pretzel dog treat, pig ear, and a beer bottle squeaky toy.

All you have to do it add your man’s favorite brew and it’s the perfect gift. $73.25, www.doglovergiftbaskets.com
3. Fido, I am Your Father.
What man does not like Star Wars? Reward the husband that has put up with the pink sparkly collar and scented poop bags by giving him a Star Wars inspired dog toy for your pampered pup. Personal favorite is the Death Star. It has withstood my 13 month-old sheltie’s rough play and it’s fun to watch him pull the Vader and Storm troopers from pockets in the Death Star Tug. Price Varies. www.petco.com
