Father's Day Gifts for Pet Dads That'll Make Them Howl with Joy

Father's Day is this Sunday, and if you're like a lot of us you are probably scrambling to find something for the dad in your life that isn't a typical coffee mug or a tie they won't wear. Sure, every dad loves a plaster-of Paris hand print their kid makes for them or a coupon for a free nap-cocktail-whatever-sports-ball-game-TV-viewing afternoon but if the man in your life is a big fan of the family dog or cat, why not get them something pet-related?

Here are our Father's Day Gift picks for the dog or cat dad in your life.

Fun Gifts For Dog and Cat Dads for Father's Day

<p>Pet Genie.</p><p>The Pet Genie company claims that The Pet Genie is not just a solution; it's a revolution in outdoor pet waste management, and they aren't lying. If you have one of these in your backyard it has this advanced odor-locking technology that ensures your outdoor space remains fresh and inviting, allowing your dad to enjoy his sanctuary without any unpleasant odors, or running over any um, dog waste with the lawn mower or worse, stepping in it. You can find these <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Pet-Genie-Disposal-System-Control/dp/B0CHTDZ1JC" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:amazing systems at Amazon here.;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">amazing systems at Amazon here.</a> </p>
<p>Uncommon Goods</p><p>How cute is this <a href="https://www.uncommongoods.com/product/dog-face-pillow/519500000008" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:dog face pillow from Uncommon Goods;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">dog face pillow from Uncommon Goods </a>that lets the dog dad in your life enjoy the company of his pupper–minus the muddy paws–while he lounges on the couch.</p>

You can also add things like a heartbeat insert, memory pouch or voice recorder. They can also create bobble heads, blankets and golf shirts with your favorite dad's cat or dog on them. </p>
<p>Ancestry</p><p>If the bro in your life is super obsessed with knowing everything about their pet, you can order them a Know Your Pet DNA test from Ancestry. This will tell them what breed their pet matches to plus their traits. My editor Mary and I used to have huge fights over what breed her rescue Shih Tzu Tito is, and I would tell her all the time he was part Cretan hound. She didn't believe me until <a href="https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/ancestry-dna-proved-purebred-shih-174500583.html" data-ylk="slk:Tito took a DNA test;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas;outcm:mb_qualified_link;_E:mb_qualified_link;ct:story;" class="link  yahoo-link">Tito took a DNA test </a>and turns out I was absolutely right. You can order the DNA test here. </p>
<p>Amazon</p><p>Hear me out on this one, my own husband is super into grooming our pets. He gets a lot of satisfaction knowing the cats and dogs can't scratch up our leather Chesterfield so a tool like the Dremel PawControl 7760-PGK Dog Nail Grinder and Trimmer is right up his alley. This is super easy to use and comes with a rechargeable battery, a USB charger and most importantly, a nail guard so you don't end up cutting your cat or dog's quick. You can <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Dremel-Pawcontrol-7760-PGK-Cordless-Grinder/dp/B07RBNBGMZ/ref=sr_1_1?tag=pethelpful-20" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:buy this nail grinding tool from Amazon;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">buy this nail grinding tool from Amazon </a>and save both your dog or cat dad's furniture and sanity. </p>
<p>Friendship Collar</p><p>I'm a huge fan of Friendship collar and they sell the cutest matching friendship bracelets and dog collars, which is great because then you can make your man match his pup. I've purchased these as gifts a few times and the quality is great and they come in lots of cute prints. <a href="https://friendshipcollar.com/" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:You can order them here;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">You can order them here</a>. </p>
<p>SpotOn</p><p>Your<a href="https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/heartbreaking-experience-losing-pet-important-133000794.html" data-ylk="slk:dog is probably microchipped;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas;outcm:mb_qualified_link;_E:mb_qualified_link;ct:story;" class="link  yahoo-link"> dog is probably microchipped</a>, but microchips don't keep your dog from escaping your yard, especially if your yard isn't fenced. Plus, we all know dogs love bolting out the front door too and most people don't have the front yard fenced. That's why something like the SpotOn GPS dog fence is so wonderful for a dog dad worried about his pup escaping. There are no underground buried cables to worry about and SpotOn is <a href="https://spotonfence.com/pages/most-accurate-gps-fence-third-party-test" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Independently tested;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">Independently tested </a>& proven to be the most accurate GPS smart fence. My co-worker Natalie uses this system on her rescue pup and she says it has given her so much peace of mind knowing her fur baby won't run away or get hit by a car, and training her dog with the system was an absolute cinch. You can <a href="https://spotonfence.com/products/spoton-gps-fence" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:purchase the SpotOn system here;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">purchase the SpotOn system here</a>. </p>
<p>Catit</p><p>Catit makes the most gorgeous cat trees and furniture and if the man in your life doesn't want some awful carpet covered monstrosity taking up his living room, why not get him a beautiful cat tree that is actually a joy to look at? You can <a href="https://catit.us/products/vesper-treehouse-medium" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:purchase the Vesper treehouse here;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">purchase the Vesper treehouse here </a>and make the cat dad in your life super happy. </p>
<p>Plufi</p><p>What could be better for a dog dad than a giant, cozy, human sized dog bed he can curl up with his dog and nap in? I think I need one of these for me and all of my cats! You can <a href="https://weareplufl.com/products/plufl-the-dog-bed-for-humans" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:purchase the Plufi here;elm:context_link;itc:0;sec:content-canvas" class="link ">purchase the Plufi here</a>. </p>
