“I solemnly dedicate the best birthday bash for my favorite pet, my dog. The ever-loving, ever caring and well, the ever-licker”.
This year a birthday celebration is long due for you my dear paw friend. And well it’s not only me, but that’s how most of us, I mean the pet owners must feel like. Ever since I got a dog, the feeling of love and happiness was mutual. Of course. Our dogs are our families. When you adopt them you are accepting the responsibility of having a dog. With loads of responsibilities comes a plethora of fun too.
Celebrating your dog’s birthday is one of the most rejoiceful moments you can ever have. Let me be clear – it is the epic fun of the year! There are plenty of ideas to mess with when it’s about your dog’s birthday bash.
So how are you going to do it?
Unconditional love for your favorite dog in easy steps
Love, affection, and loyalty are the core qualities of any dog breed. So, be prepared to throw the best birthday party ever. Down below are some ways you can keep in mind when planning for a memorable party.
- Pick a gift
But hey, it’s not just any gift. It’s The Gift. let’s face it. We spoil our dogs to the extent they become our next bed partners. But their birthdays are special which means spoiling is a must. Nothing is better than a doggie gift.
For all the legitimate reasons, find something unique that will come in handy for your dog. How does a cool summer jacket sound? Or maybe your dog prefers to have chew toys if he is an aggressive chewer?
Better yet – fill the dog gates, the open compound, with balls. Surprise your dog. Record the epic moment.
- Flavorful party
Even dogs have their favorite recipes. Not that they can cook, but eating something right away tells a lot about their favorites. So if you are thinking about what type of fruits dogs can eat on their birthday? You can pick simple choices like an apple. Including the fruits and veggies in doggie treats is the best way.
A doggie cake without flour but with the nutrition of fruits and vegetables or even human food? It is even possible. Pick the recipe that is easy to follow. Even a peanut butter cake or cookie is as good too.
- Icecream teat
I know you really cannot give ice creams to your dogs. But the good part is, it’s not real ice cream. Instead, it’s the blend of fruits (like bananas) with plain yogurt, add a small quantity of peanut butter, and freeze it.
Or you can try making some ice pops on their special day. This time you can opt for chicken or beef broth and pour it into a mold and freeze. If your dog doesn’t like it then the traditional option is always there.
Want party wear for your dog? Absolutely. Nothing is cuter than your dog dressed up either on Halloween or birthday bash. It’s super fun to dress up your dog for the day!
Start with a party hat on your dog. Make sure it is not plastic (that won’t just do) instead it should be construction paper or foam paper. Both are dog-friendly items to use. Hat decoration ideas are endless for a birthday bash. So add tussles, pompoms, and anything that makes it look like a festive occasion.
Or you could just buy one from a pet store. Add some other cool accessories for your pup too.
How can you forget to send all the invites to other dog fellows? A dog’s birthday party is incomplete without the entire gang, right? Let the other dogs sniff around happily with no restrictions.
Be fully prepared for the pup guests. Have plenty of water. Treats must be ready at hand and so should be the chew toys. Be sure to keep your eyes on the dog. Or you can ring a dog sitter.
- Strike a pose!
Do you know what cuter than a dressed-up dog? A dog ready to smile (literally) for the camera. If your dog is a poser, then this is going to be a hilarious but amazing memory. Make a photo booth with a backdrop.
It must be cute.
Grab as many props as possible that can be handled easily with your dog. And well strike a pose you lot! Have your guests take your photos and you can even upload them on your Instagram.
- Game on
Ah, nothing can compare to the joy of running around in the backyard with the leash off the hook. Dogs can be pretty much fun too without a harness sometimes.
Since it’s a special occasion, you can let your dog off the hook for once, and let him have fun. Playing games, puzzles, or even practicing outdoors in a fun way can be exciting. A birthday should not revolve around the cake, not for the dogs anyways. It’s a fun day.
Well, see it’s not that hard now, is it? Of course, you are more than welcome to add more items to the list. I’m all ears! And so is my dog.
