The weather is getting warmer, summer’s getting closer and that means Father’s Day is upon us. Shopping for a pet loving Dad? We’re sharing a trove of great gift ideas that will make his day - whether he’s a parent to a dog or a cat.

Rock Atoll Shorts
With so many cookie cutter khaki shorts out there, why not give Dad something with a little style. Rock Atoll shorts feature cool animal themed prints that will stand out in a crowd. They are available in both a casual as well as a slim fit, so they fit Fathers of all shapes and sizes. rockatoll.com

Working pet owners often worry about their pet’s well being while they’re away from home. Petcube’s devices go way beyond the typical home pet camera, allowing you to have a video call, dispense treats or even use a light for interactive play. What a way to give Dad peace of mind. petcube.com

Ruffwear Running Harness
Do you know an active Dad that loves to exercise with his best friend? If so, the Ruffwear Front Range harness is a great gift. The harness features a full range of motion, multiple points of adjustment and a padded belly allowing you and your dog to run together comfortably. ruffwear.com

Katris Scratching Post
With endless configurations based on your cat’s scratching preferences and what your home accommodates both aesthetically and functionally, Katris creates an ever-changing playground for our feline friends with their modular scratching posts. Eco-friendly and durable, the units double as a bookshelf, a coffee table or even a cat tree. katriscat.com

Dread that last walk of the night with your dog? Find the darkness makes it hard to spot Fido much less find where he pooped? Panther vision has a solution pet Dads will appreciate: the hands-free LED light that emanates from the brim of POWERCAP (a cool baseball hat) illuminates up to 42 feet ahead making those late night strolls with Fido something to look forward to. panthervision.com

Up Country
For the dog dad who loves a stylin’ dog, Rhode Island-based Up Country has 120 looks to chose from. So pet moms make up your minds, is the man in your life sporty? Go for a regatta theme. Maybe he’s an intrepid adventurer? Go natural with a pheasant or fly fishing theme. A true classic? Opt for stars and stripes. Collars, leashes and more (loving those indoor/outdoor futons!) for every dog dad’s personality. upcountryinc.com
