Dogs Like To Party Too
Most people go big on planning and entertaining for their children’s birthday, but lets not forget our fur-babies! Our dogs deserve to be spoiled on their special day too. Luckily, dogs won’t put expensive electronics on their wish list. Below we have gathered our best ideas to celebrating your dogs birthday in special ways that won’t break the bank.
Here are our top 5 ideas to celebrate the love for your dog on his birthday.
Have a Doggy Birthday Party
Invite a few of your close friends and family, along with their friendly dogs to a home birthday party (assuming your dog likes to be around other dogs). If this is your first time inviting other pets into your home, be sure to start small. Overwhelming your dog with several new pets in their safe home isn’t the goal. Inviting a few dogs over will be more than enough to make it a memorable day for your dog. You could serve dog friendly cupcakes, give out goodie bags, I mean Doggie Bags, filled with treats. If space allows, a quick game of fetch or tug-o-war would make a great activity too. Be sure to monitor the dogs interacting at all times to make sure all are playing nicely and staying safe.
If your dog is a foodie like most of us, offering a special snack or treat can make it a special birthday. It’s a fun and easy way to incorporate a yearly tradition in honor of your furry companion. You know your dog best, so consider their favorite flavors and textures when picking our their treats. Long lasting treats are a great option to keep your dog happy and engaged for longer and really feel extra spoiled chomping on something yummy and unique.
Set-up a Doggy Play Date
Does your dog have a favorite playtime pal? Not the human kind, or maybe the human kind… Planning a get together with your pets favorite fur-friend, family member or neighbor is a wonderful way to spoil your dog. They will ware themselves out in no time and that means no extra fuss or muss on your part. Sit back and watch your dog live their best doggie life, pouncing, playing and chasing.
Let Your Dog Pick Out a New Toy
Take your dog on a trip to your local pet store and let him pick out a new toy to really get his tail wagging. From ropes and tennis balls to squeaker toys or chews, the options are endless. If you don’t live near a pet store, picking out toys online is simple too.
Make a Day of Their Favorite Activity
Some dogs like to go on walks and explore trails or scents down the sidewalk, some like to jump in the pond to swim and shake, some like to play fetch with huge bursts of energy, some like to ride in the car with the breeze blasting their faces. Whichever activity your pet enjoys most, spend an afternoon focused on letting them do their favorite thing.
If you’ve made it to the end of this post, you are a dedicated pet parent that truly cherishes their dog. No matter how you choose to celebrate your dogs birthday, the most prized to your dog is YOU! Spending time with you, playing with you, and cuddling with you. We hope these suggestions have been helpful for your pooch planning.
