So I need to get a Dog Father’s Day gift for my husband from Kilo the Pug.
My husband really really loved our two previous dogs, Cookie the lab and Isabelle the lab mix (RIP to both after very long happy healthy lives). Pugs are not his favorite breed. He prefers bigger, less demanding, less vocal, more obedient dogs that he can run with and that don’t shed black hair all over the white sofas.
In spite of his reservations, he feeds and walks Kilo when necessary in all sorts of weather and plays fighty fist and cleans those sofas. I think he now secretly enjoys the back flips and pug hugs when he walks in the door. A good Dog Dad Father’s Day gift might soften him further.
Looking for inspiration?
Check out what I found and treat the dog dad in your life to one of these fabulous gifts this Father’s Day.

Inspiration List of 20 Great Gifts for Dog Dads on Father’s Day
Official Dog Walker Hat $24.99
Looks cute and comes in very handy dog walking or by the lake.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
On the expensive side but really fun for Ted and Kilo who often watch TV or listen to music together. I got Ted a big Flatscreen for last birthday to watch sports.
NB I actually got this for Ted for his birthday recently and he LOVES it!! We also have Amazon Prime and get all sorts of new shows.
Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote, streaming media player
Ted needs a new wallet and I could pop in a pic of Kilo and I.
Wallet for Men-Genuine Leather RFID Blocking Bifold Stylish Wallet With 2 ID Window (Coffee)
On the expensive side but Ted would love these.
Apple AirPods with Charging Case (Latest Model)
Bose Micro Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker – Black
Ted can never have enough cute t-shirts for dog walking and running. Love the colour combo of this t-short, the hat, the shorts and the shoes.
Mens Best Dog Dad Ever Tshirt Funny Fathers Day Puppy Tee for Guys (Heather Grey)
Mens’ Swim Shorts
Ted needs some new swim shorts and the weather is finally improving. These would look great with the t-shirt and under $20.
Kanu Surf Men’s Barracuda Swim Trunks (Regular & Extended Sizes), Charcoal, Large
These would go well with the t-shirt and be great for running. Ted needs a new pair.
Nike Men’s Revolution 4 Running Shoe, Dark Black-Cool Grey/White, Regular US
Cool Oakley Sunglasses
These would complete Ted’s summer outfit for running, poolside or lakefront. A bit expensive but super cool.

Labels for beer and wine
OMG these labels I saw on Etsy are too cute. Ted loves beer and wine so I have to get these.
Custom waterproof dog dad beer labels make great Father’s Day Gifts (CA$15.50+)
Can never have enough coffee mugs in our house.
The Dogfather Tea Coffee Ceramic Mugs (White, 11 oz.)
Ted is a sports fanatic and Kilo is very patient watching sports with him for hours on end. He would LOVE tickets to a live game, especially the Raptors or Blue Jays. I did get him basket ball tickets for Christmas.
Furbo Dog Camera: Treat Tossing, Full HD Wifi Pet Camera and 2-Way Audio, Designed for Dogs, Compatible with Alexa (As Seen On Ellen)
This is outside my budget for now at over $500 but I know Ted would love it. We both sold vaccuums in previous careers and really appreciate the Dyson technology. I saw the new Animal model demonstrated at Woofstock last week and fell in love. We NEED one to get Kilo’s hair off the couches. I will save up and get one for his birthday or for Christmas.

Nice Post. I never know what to get my husband for father’s day. He is a great dog dad, I appreciate the suggestions listed here. I like the Mens T-shirt and dog dad beer labels, they are neat ideas.
Jenna Emmons says
OMD, I love the idea of the custom beer labels! There probably isn’t enough time to order them for this year, but I bet you could buy similarly sized labels and print them out yourself.
Talent Hounds says
Don’t they look cool. Yes I may make some for wine and beer LOL
Ruth Epstein says
Great post and I sometimes feel bad that Layla does not have another parent but on the other hand she is so spoiled it would not make a difference to her. The gifts are great ideas and loved the Cap which I think from Kilo would be a great gift.
I’m loving that best dog dad ever shirt! I bet my hubby would rock that. Great list of ideas
Sherri Telenko says
Personalized beer and wine labels? I love it. Those I have to look into . Not necessarily for Father’s Day but every day.
Kamira G. says
I don’t have dogs however many of these would work for cat lovers like me too! I have a friend that loves the Apple Airpods and loves them. If I had a pet I’d probably buy the Furbo so I can keep an eye on my furball. For now I have fosters so that can wait, although that Dyson could come in handy! Thanks for sharing these great Father’s Day gift ideas.
Jana Rade says
OMG I love the wine and beer labels. That is awesome.
Marjorie and the Dash Kitten Crew says
I am so glad there are ‘dad’ gifts. People tend to think only women want to need to have presents about their pets but this is SO wrong.
The cap is my favourite
I didn’t bother doing anything for my husband, from the furries this year (boo me). John’s birthday is next month – I am definitely going to come back to this list for inspiration! I keep saying I’m going to get Jack a Jay’s jersey!
These are great gift ideas I love the Turbo – I haven’t seen that before. I’m afraid my dogs would attack it and demand all the treats. I really like the Etsy labels too – what a wonderful idea!
Dorothy "FiveSibesMom" says
You have some great gift ideas here! I really like those kicks for my hubby, just his style! It’s great to have a list! Of course, I love the purple cordless Dyson! I have the big one, but that one looks nice and light!
Talent Hounds says
I agree- love the kicks and the Dyson. XS
Sweet Purrfections says
Some Pug’s dad is going to get some nice Father’s Day gifts!
I hope he liked whatever you (and Kilo) decided on! You have a lot of great suggestions!
Furbo has to be on everyone’s list!! Even a dog walking fanny pack is a great addition to this list, they’re going to make those morning walks that much easier. Large capacity, built-in poop bags, and even an attachment for their leash!! Great list btw, I’m definitely saving this one 🙂
