The Outdoors Dad
He’s always down for adventures and pushing others to step out of their comfort zone and try new things.

He sees the value of learning how to do things the old fashioned way and rely on good ol’ human instincts.

The Sports Dad
This dad can sometimes be described by others as boisterous, rough and rowdy, but deep down he has the fiercest and most loyal heart. He has a bit of a competitive streak and doesn’t always let you win. He likes to push himself and others to the limit, and you know that if you ask him for help you’ll walk away stronger and tougher if you choose to put in the extra work.

The DIY Dad
Your dad likes to work with his hands and knows he had a productive day if he got his hands dirty. If he sees a problem or something that needs to be fixed, he’ll drop everything and spend as much time as possible until that problem fixed. He never wants to hire a plumber or go to the mechanic. He always wants to take the first shot at fixing an issue, which leaves you waiting to have hot water for a month.
