When people hear the term “pet parent,” they might automatically think of cat ladies. However, it’s not just women who adore their pets. Men do, too. To showcase the men who love their dogs — and to honor all the fathers out there — photographer Chantal Adair captured dog dads and their dog kids in a new photo series.

Adair, known as The Dog Styler, started photographing dogs last September, she told Petcha.com. It was something new that she had the courage to try, and now clients are flying the New York-based photographer out to Europe for photo shoots with dogs. Adair describes the experience as “a dream come true.”

And it’s a dream with a little fun wrapped up in it, with the dogs pictured dressed up in clothes.

“I started photographing dogs in clothes as a playful take on the fashion world, which is where my background has been in —first as a model, then as a photographer,” she told Petcha.

And thankfully, lots of the photos are on Instagram (@thedogsyler).

Her latest series, created for Father’s Day, is a follow-up to the Mother’s Day series she did previously. Each concept was developed between Adair and the dog owner (yes, all of the dog dads are the actual owners), with inspiration garnered from movies and pop culture, she told us. Plus there’s a little comedy thrown in for good measure.

“I took theses photos because I enjoy making people laugh and the juxtaposition of dogs in human clothes strikes a chord in people that explores our evolutionary bond with these wonderful animals,” Adair said.

The dog and dad lookalike aspect of the photos was also purposeful, for a laugh.

“I’m such a fan of comedy and making each photo stand out was my mission,” she said.

And each photo definitely stands out. Take a look:
