Fun Ways to Celebrate Fido’s Birthday

Is your dog about to celebrate a birthday? Our canine friends are lifelong companions and friends, and your furry buddy’s presence in your life is definitely something to celebrate. In this article, a Marietta, GA veterinarian offers some suggestions for celebrating your pooch’s birthday.

Host A Puppy Party

Is Fido friendly and sociable around other dogs? If so, why not invite some of his canine buddies over for a puppy party? Get plenty of toys and snacks and, if weather permits, set up a sprinkler or kiddie pool for the pups. Just be sure to only invite safe, gentle dogs, and make sure all your four-legged guests are current on their shots.

Doggy Park Excursion

Our canine friends love to explore new places. Why not take Fido to a doggy park? There are many nearby, such as Burger Park, Tolleson Park, and Lake Court Park, or you can venture further for a change of scenery and a great day trip!

Pupcakes

Who says Fido can’t have a birthday cake of his own? You can make your furry pal a dog-friendly birthday cake by using a base of peanut butter, whole-wheat flour, egg, and carrots or beans. There are many recipe variations for canine cakes online. Your pooch will probably ‘woof’ a piece down in no time!

Toys

Getting Fido some new playthings is another great way to celebrate his birthday. Rope toys, balls, and chew toys are very popular with our canine friends. If you really want to go all out, consider getting your pooch an automatic ball launcher.

Bed

Just like people, dogs love comfortable beds. Fido’s birthday is a great time to upgrade his bedding. If your pooch is a senior, a good orthopedic bed is a great gift.

Gift Basket

Why not make Fido a gift basket? Fill it with toys and treats, and dole out these goodies one by one to your canine pal.

Doghouse

Do you have a fenced yard? If so, why not add a doghouse, so that Fido can enjoy his own private retreat when he’s outside? Doghouses require more work and expense than the other gifts we’ve listed, but they’ll also last longer!
