Chuy is going to be 9 this Friday, 6/22/18! I honestly cannot believe it. We always celebrate his birthday because Chuy is family and that’s what families do!
So, how do you celebrate a dog’s birthday? Here are 5 free ways to celebrate your dog’s birthday. You’re probably also thinking. “What the heck do I buy a dog for its birthday?!”
You are in the right place! I’ve put together 14 dog birthday gift ideas so you don’t have to stress out trying to figure it out.
Dog Birthday Cake Toys
A dog birthday cake is a must have. In addition to the real dog birthday cake, you definitely need one your dog can play with! Here are a few ideas:
In case you don’t just want a slice of cake, then I recommend this layer cake dog toy!
I bought this for Chuy a few years ago and it’s so cute! When you squeeze it, it plays the Happy Birthday song.
I love these kind of dog toys. It gives your dog something to do because it’s like a puzzle or mental game they can play. The present box comes with a cake, candle, and party hat that your dog can pull out of the box.
This comes as a set of two. I would recommend one to play with and the other for birthday photos!
Happy Birthday Tennis Balls
Every dog needs some new birthday balls! I always get Chuy some kind of birthday tennis balls. He loves playing fetch outside and indoors since we have a large great room where he can run around when it’s too hot or rainy outside.
These come in either pink or blue.
These are Chuy’s favorite brand of tennis balls from Kong.
How adorable are these? They look like confetti birthday cake but they are tennis balls! I think the packaging is so cute too!
Even though Chuy is small, he is a tough chewer. I love toys from KONG because they are basically indestructible. You know I love sparkly things so this confetti ball really caught my eye. And yes, I ordered it.
