20 Pawfect Dog Dad Gifts for Father’s Day
On Sunday 21st June it’s Father’s Day! But why should our dog’s dad be left out on all the fun? This Father’s Day throw them a bone and treat them to a gift from their bestie, their bro, they’re lil girl or their partner in crime.
These 19 pawfect dog dad gifts have been carefully selected by dog dads themselves to cater for all types. Whether they’re ‘Dad to the bone’, into sports or the latest gadgets. Find the pawfect dog dad gifts below.
Top Dog Dad Gift: Nerf Dog Tennis Ball Blaster
At the top of most of our dog dad’s gift list was this tennis ball blasting Nerf gun for £14.99.
This Blaster launches tennis balls up to 50ft in the air for your dog to chase and catch. You can dial the blaster back to go shorter distances and you can pick the ball back up hands-free (hurray for no muddy hands).
The main Tennis Ball Blaster can be found here. It doesn’t come with balls but can use any standard tennis ball sizes. If you’re looking for one more suitable to smaller dogs or puppies, the mini tennis ball blaster comes complete with mini-sized tennis balls.
A great way for father and dog to build that special bond with the ultimate game of fetch.

Is dad into board games? We had a couple of board games picked out by our dog dads, but this one took the golden bone. It’s a game the whole family can play, including the dogs.
In this board game, there’s questions for humans and simple tasks for dogs. Winners collect bones as a reward. The first team to complete the tasks wins and if the dog earns more bones than you during the game, you’ve guessed it, the dog wins! Grab your tail-wagging board game here.

For the Dog Dad Who’s Sick Of Holding Bags of Poo: Portable Poop Bin – Dicky Bag
There’s nothing that makes dad look more attractive than carrying an awkward, inconvenient and smelly bag of dog poop in their hand for ages looking for a bin.
Our dog dads praised this clever invention which gives them their dignity back. They can put the dog poo in a temporary bin, the Dicky Bag.
This lightweight, odour and leak-proof portable bin can be easily attached to dog leads, trousers, jackets, backpacks and more. Inside the lid, there’s a pocket for fresh bags and a replaceable air freshener disc that sits in the bottom and helps the bag smell better when emptied.

Gaucho restaurants are well-known for being dog friendly, with locations Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester and London. They also have a ‘Muttprolitan’ treat menu for the dog to tuck into too. Enjoy a three-course dinner for two at Gaucho with glass of prosecco.
Some of Gordon Ramsey restaurants are also dog friendly. We’re drooling over bottomless pizza for two at Gordon Ramsay’s Street Pizza and the three-course meal for two at Gordon Ramsay’s The Narrow, London.

Now, this is an expensive choice, but hear our dog dads out.
They may not be selfie-obsessed but our dads enjoy capturing memories of the dog. With the go-pro, they can strap it to their harness to see adventures from the dog’s point of view.
It’s a great choice to spoil your dog’s dad, especially if they’ve been raking in brownie points with DIY jobs.
For all Dog Dads: Fathers Day Cards
We all love a card, be it for birthdays, Christmas or even Father’s Day. These were some of our dog dad’s top picks. All of these cards provide that well-deserved giggle.

Give your dog a big muddy paw, and sign it with love.
For the Dog Dad Who Hates Cards: Dog Dad Notebook

When this all blows over, we’ll all be dying to get away, our dog Dad’s certainly were! Surprise your dog’s Dad with a staycation in one of these lovely UK breaks.
Glamping is always fun to enjoy, particularly in the summer months. Even better when it includes a hot tub and fizz for two in the woodlands of Somerset.
Perhaps Glamping isn’t Dad’s style, and you want to tucker up in a luxury cottage in Norfolk. Or perhaps you’re looking you want to totally pamper Dad with something a little more indulgent like a hotel break and dinner at the New Forest.
