Being a dog dad is one of the greatest jobs in the world, but dog dads aren’t always recognized for all the things they do for their pups.

But their dogs recognize it.

They know their dads will always be there to pick up their poop on the daily.

They know their dads will always make room for them to stretch out in bed.

They know their dads will always sneak them a taste of whipped cream as a "special treat."

Dog dads come in all types — so here are some unique gift ideas for the dog dad in your life this Father’s Day.

The Doting Dad

Is the dog dad in your life ready and willing to spoil his pup rotten? Is he there to catch every drop of drool with a handkerchief embroidered with his dog's face? These gifts are for him:
