A dog's life wouldn't be as sweet without their doggy dad. He trains them, plays with them, and sneaks them treats under the table. Everything he does is all out of love for his four-legged child—there is no one, and I repeat no one, more proud of their dog.

It may have even been a situation where dad didn't want the dog at first, and somehow they became BFFs and left everyone else in the dust (nothing hurts like your dog favoring their other parent over you). Whatever the sitch, puppy parents this dedicated deserve a dog dad shirt. We rounded up 12 special tees that advertise his favorite name: dog dad.

From breed-specific shirts to movie-inspired quotes, you're sure to find a meaningful gift for the dog dads on your holiday gift list this season.
