- For the Interior-Design Addict
Dog dads are a cool lot and don’t always want their home to look like a doggy daycare just because Rover is the centre of his universe. Give dad this trendy dog bowl and he will appreciate that it’s not an eye sore when you enter the kitchen. This one by Pet-Fusion retails for USD $45.95 and is made from ‘Grade A’ New Zealand pine.

Dad and dog can now bond together by relaxing and enjoying a cold puppy brew! Known as Bowser Beer, that is. This dog-friendly beer comes in different flavours: beef, chicken, pork.

8. For the Puppy Chaser
If his dog enjoys sneaking out or playing Houdini at the dog park, the Tractive GPS Tracker ensures dad’s dog will never stray too far.

The app in iOS or Android pulls up Rover’s GPS coordinates on his smartphone or tablet to put dad’s mind at ease when he is not with his pet. The Tractive is great for dogs weighing 10 pounds or more. Retails for USD $129.99 and a monthly subscription of $9.95.
9. For the (Dog) Film Fanatic
At Hotel Doggy, we love dogs, dog-friendly boutique hotels and film. If the dog dad in your life loves movies too, then buy him a $25 gift card to take a friend to the cinema and see the Megan Leavey movie starring Kate Mara. It tells the true story of a young marine corporal and her bond with a K9 dog named Sergeant Rex who served in Iraq in 2005 and 2006.
10. For the Gadget-Lover
If dad loves gadgets and playing with his GoPro, why not entertain buying him the GoPro Fetch harness. He can attach his GoPro using the fully adjustable straps and capture the world on camera from his dog’s point of view. The harness suits dogs weighing 15 to 120 pounds and uses washable, water-friendly material that can withstand swimming, splashing, mud and more. The camera mounts onto his dog’s back or his chest and a quick release base and padding allow dad to easily move the camera around and take it on and off. The harness is featured on GoPro’s website for USD $39.99.
