This Dog Dad Gift Guide works for every occasion.  If a birthday, Christmas, or Father’s Day is coming up, you better remember all the pops in your life.  Especially remember the Dog Dad!  I don’t know about you but buying gifts for my Dad is a pain!  I never know what to buy him.  And I usually see everything that I have ever given him shoved in a corner in the basement.

If you have experienced the same frustration then we have you covered.  We have put together the best list of Father’s Day Gift Ideas for a Dog Dad. We found K-9 books, shirts, funny junk, and unique gifts.

Hey if you are Pooch Pop and you see something you want.  Then be sure to share this post.  If not, I hope you enjoy that tie.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Dog Dads: Books

Most Dads love to read.  The others like funny pictures.  The following books are ideal for both breeds of dads.

Underwater Dogs 

This is one cool book!  It is filled with great pictures of canines that are underwater.  A word of warning!  Don’t look through it.  If you do, you might just keep it.

Unerwater Dogs book

Peanut Butter Dogs

This book is hard to put down.  Most of these canines are rescues and photographed with perfection.  However, there is a side effect of this book.  Your Dad might try this on his pooch.  Which could be funny or it might get your Mom mad at you.

Peanut Butter Dogs Book


This book is awesome!  The photography will blow you away.  Also, the looks on their face as they try to catch a treat is hysterical.

Treat Dog Book


This K-9 book is hysterical and the photographer is incredible.  61 pooches are captured in mid-shake!  Check out some of the photographs, they are nuts.

Dog Treadmill

Hey, canines need exercise too.  Sure it’s kinda wacky, but what dad wouldn’t love this.  Plus, a tired dog is a chilled dog.  Every dog dad loves a chilled dog.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Dog Dads: Cool Stuff

Furbo Dog Camera: Treat Tossing, Full HD Wifi Pet Camera and 2-Way Audio

When you are busy at work, are there times you need to see and talk to your bestie?  With the Furbo, you can!  This device has 2-way sound and 1 way video.  If this device hears, you pooch barking, you can get an alert sent to your phone.  It will even let you give them treats!

Echo Dot (4th Generation) – Smart speaker with Alexa 

What does the echo dot have to do with pooches?  Nothing really, but where there is a will there is a way.  I have literally spent hours playing with my Lab and the dot.  There is nothing funnier than having Alexa bark like a mutt, meow like a cat, or sound like a dolphin.  While your pooch runs from room to room in search of the offending animal.

West Paw Zogoflex Zisc Dog Frisbee

We love this flexible Frisbee.  Have you ever sliced your hand on a chewed up Frisbee?  You don’t have to worry about that with this thing.  It’s great for pooches that are just starting out catching discs.

Coolrunner Pet Treat Launcher Training dog food catapult

This is a fun canine gift and can keep your dad and his pooch occupied for a while.  Load it up with hard treats, push the button and let them fly!  It can also be used in training your dog.

West Paw Zogoflex Hurley Durable Dog Bone Chew Toy 

It says chew toy, but I use it for fetch.  The coolest thing about this bone is the crazy hop it gets when it lands.

Chuckit! Classic 26M Launcher 

This is one of the most perfect Dog Gifts I ever received (I mean my Lab ever received).  No more shoulder pain after going to the dog park.  No more picking up nasty spit soaked tennis balls.  The best part, the ball goes a whole lot farther.  Also, your wonder-mutt tires out a whole lot quicker.  Warning.  The ball that comes with the Chuckit is horrible.  The last one I got lasted 20 minutes.  Just be sure to get the one that fits tennis balls, and you will be good to go.

The ORIGINAL ‘Did You Feed the Dog? (v. 4.0)

There is nothing more annoying than forgetting to feed the machine. Except feeding them twice.
