How to Celebrate Your Dog’s Birthday – Dog Style!

20 Comments

Celebrate Your Dog's Birthday, Dog StyleIs your pup’s special day coming up soon? Are you looking for a way to celebrate your dog’s birthday? I’ve never been one for doggy birthday parties with banners, balloons, doggy friends or a dog-healthy homemade cake and I definitely know Haley would not be thrilled about wearing a party hat for twenty minutes while I try to get the perfect photo of her “enjoying” her party. Since Haley’s 8th birthday was last Friday, I decided this year to give her what I knew she would love the most for her birthday. A day filled with a few of her favorite things!

Click the eight birthday ideas below to discover some Haley-approved surprises for your dog’s next birthday.

Dog Friendly Stores - Rural KingTake your dog to their favorite pet-friendly store.
Dog Begging for Chicken FootBuy a handful (or should I say foot-full) of her most tasty treats! Yeah, these are a little weird, but it’s Haley’s new favorite snack.
Dog Running Off-leashIf your pup has good recall, take her for a walk on her favorite off-leash hiking trail or try hiking somewhere new if your dog loves the excitement of a new adventure.
Dog Biting StickWhat dog doesn’t love chasing after or chewing on a good stick? Haley makes it her job to wrangle the biggest sticks she can find.
Dog on Frozen PuddleEnjoy nature with your pup, whether it’s skating on frozen mud puddles or just basking in the sunshine.
Dog Eating Chicken FootGo ahead, allow your dog to indulge on another of her favorite treats. After all, it is her birthday and that was quite a hike earlier in the day! Chicken foot anyone?
Dog with Cow ToyDogs and people alike, love gifts on their birthday.
Dog Getting MassageWhat better way to end the special day than with a relaxing massage or extra long belly rub. Happy Birthday Haley!

It felt great to watch Haley enjoy doing all the things she loves and to celebrate her birthday dog-style rather than trying to make her enjoy a human-style birthday party. Some dogs might love the banners, balloons and posing for photos, but Haley enjoyed her special day this year doing her favorite things. Do you celebrate your dog’s birthday? Share your favorite ways to celebrate.
