If you’ve already heard about Larry, you know he’s the official Woof Report advisor. The good boy that he is, he’s kind enough to volunteer his treat, toy and product testing capabilities to benefit Woof Report readers near and far. He also ensures each day includes plenty of play and snuggling, and he’s the inspiration for many Woof tips too.

Larry also knows exactly how to shop for his not-quite-biological dad. Larry clearly recognizes that any gift he gives to his dog dad that relates to him, or even better, has his adorable furry likeness, has the golden paw touch! There will be no returns, no exchanges and no gifts that are ‘loved’ yet disappear into the closet never to be seen again. This innate ability is not simply due to his Border Collie genes. All dogs know it, and yours does too.

Larry’s has sniffed out the gifts below for dog dads with discriminating tastes.

As always, Woof Report product picks (and Larry’s) are handpicked and not advertisements.
