Who’s A Good Doggie Daddy?

Fathers’ Day is just around the corner so it is time to give some thought to how we can celebrate all the fab dads in our lives.  My husband is the proud father of 2 human children.  He is also a spectacular Dog Dad to Leo the Border Terrier and Henry the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  I want to make sure he is spoilt on his special day so I have collated a list of thoughtful Fathers Day gifts for dog dads.

Friedrich Schiller said:

It is not flesh and blood, but heart which makes us fathers and sons.

…and he was a poet, philosopher, physician, historian, and playwright so I think we can consider these to be wise words!

So without further ado, here is my list of top thoughtful fathers day gifts for dog dads.

I’ve divided the collection of gifts into separate sections so you can jump straight to the section that is most relevant for you:

His & Theirs Gifts For Dog Dads and Dog Kids
Little Tokens of Affection for Dog Dads
