Happy Father’s Day from PuppyBuddy! 

Wondering how to honor your dad this year and celebrate his awesomeness as a father on Father’s Day? 

Consider giving him the gift of being a new kind of dad… a puppy papa! 

Dogs make excellent gifts to people from all walks of life. If your dad has a soft spot in his heart for dogs but doesn’t have one, give him one of the following dad-approved dog breeds this Father’s Day!

“One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.” —George Herbert


The Jack Russell terrier is a happy, energetic purebred dog breed with a strong desire to work. A Jack Russell Terrier will eagerly help your dad with all of his duties around the house. This curious and protective breed may even go above and beyond by taking on the hard job of keeping your dad’s house free from rodents and the yard free from furry trespassers! If your father wants a companion and helper, then the Jack Russell Terrier is a great dog breed choice.

“I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.” —Sigmund Freud


Courageous, protective, and affectionate, the Dachshund’s bravery makes up for his small stature. If your dad enjoys going for short hikes or even strolls around the block, a Dachshund is the perfect companion. This dog was originally bred to hunt badgers by diving head-first into their burrows. This explains the unusual physique of the Dachshund breed’s “weiner dog” shape. The great thing about this breed is that Dachshunds don’t need a ton of exercise and they get tired out quickly, which makes them perfect for dads who enjoy a bit of laid back activity, but nothing too athletic.

“A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.” —Unknown


The Miniature Schnauzer is a friendly, smart companion who is just as happy in small homes as he is in large ones. The amount of space this breed has isn’t as important to him as his job of patrolling the home and making sure everything is safe and up to snuff. If your dad has other domestic pets and children, the Miniature Schnauzer is a great choice of breed, as this dog will get along with everyone. 

“Every son quotes his father, in words and in deeds.” —Terri Guillemets


If your dad is a hard worker, athletic, and likes his time outdoors, then he’s going to need a furry companion that can keep up, like the Bernese Mountain Dog. This working dog was originally bred to assist farmers with herding livestock. Bernese Mountain Dogs are used to sprinting long distances, and running as needed to corral cattle and other livestock. They’re very intelligent which makes them easy to train, and they’re also affectionate and love their downtime relaxing with dad after a hard day’s work.
