How to Celebrate Your Dog’s Birthday

Your dog’s birthday is the perfect excuse to spoil them a little extra. However, it can be hard to decide exactly how to celebrate their birthday. To help you out, we’ve rounded up six expert tips for celebrating your dog’s birthday — from giving them extra special treats for dogs to throwing them a doggie birthday party:

Give them a special treat.

Birthdays are the perfect excuse to spoil your dog with a premium treat such as healthy dog chews or a pair of antlers. For best results, we recommend choosing a treat that your dog has already tried before so that you know that you’re giving them something that they love. After all, you don’t want to give them something that they hate on their birthday! Remember to try to stick to a mostly regular diet on their special day to avoid upsetting their stomach. Tummy troubles are a birthday gift that no one — dog or human — wants.

Bake them a homemade dog cake.

Regular birthday cake intended for humans isn’t okay for dogs to eat due to the inclusion of chocolate, sugar, and other potentially toxic ingredients. However, if you want to go the extra mile, you can totally bake your dog a “birthday cake” using canine-approved ingredients, such as the one in this recipe right here. Be super careful to follow the instructions closely and to avoid adding in any ingredients that might upset their stomach. If this sounds like too much effort for you, just give your dog a premium treat from a high-quality brand like Best Bully Sticks. They’ll appreciate it just as much!

Host a party with their dog friends.

If your dog is a very social animal, their birthday is the perfect excuse to host a puppy play date with one or a few of their closest canine friends. You can host this party at your house if you have a yard or a large room where they can play, or do it at a local dog park if you don’t have the space at your own place. This birthday party idea is best if your dog isn’t easily overstimulated. If you think that your dog will be more overwhelmed than pleased with a birthday party, don’t be afraid to celebrate using one of the other ideas on this list!
