Your dog is your best friend. So when it’s your dog’s birthday (or Gotcha Day), you need to make it extra special for them. One of the best ways to do that is to get them a dog birthday gift so they know they are extra loved on their big day.
Here are 9 super-fun dog birthday gift ideas for your special pup’s big day!
If you’ve got a pup who loves splishing and splashing in the water, there’s no better dog birthday gift than a dog kiddie pool. If you live a little too far from a lake or beach to take your dog out for a swim often, bring the water right into your own backyard for your water-loving pooch. Your dog will feel extra special on their big day with a pool just for them to splash in and cool off in the summer sun.
Mealtime is one of your dog’s favorite times of the day. Ditch that cracked bowl, plastic container, or boring metal dish you’re using and make mealtime extra special with a personalized ceramic dog bowl as a perfect dog birthday gift. Make this dog birthday gift even more special by filling it with a few extra treats for them to eat out of their new bowl on their special day. Bone appétit!
Dogs have love languages just like you do. Most likely, one of your dog’s most important love languages is quality time. If so, an enjoyable dog birthday gift for your pup (and you!) that will make them feel super special is to plan a little road trip day out on the town with just the two of you. Or invite a couple of their favorite ‘people friends’ to come along! (And you can still wrap up a little treat or present for your pup, too!)
Roll the windows down and let your pup feel the breeze through their fur as you take them around to see the sights and stop at some of their favorite places. Head to the beach and let them dig in the sand and splish-splash in the water to their heart’s content. Take them to their favorite dog park to say hi to their furry besties and play a little fetch. And maybe take them out to your favorite dog-friendly lunch spot and order them a special meal to enjoy to make their big day extra special.
Your doggo LOVES to play. And you love to play with them! But with work and other responsibilities, it’s likely that you get tired and need a break way before your pup does. If that’s the case, a perfect dog birthday gift is an on-demand ball launcher! This handy device can keep up with your pup’s seemingly endless energy and keeps the game going as long as they want. This allows you to keep your energetic furry friend occupied while you get some spring cleaning chores done, hang out with a friend or two, or take a much-needed break to rest.
Everyone needs a special treat on their birthday, and that includes your dog. As a dog birthday gift, hop in the car with your pooch on their big day for a trip to Starbucks (or your favorite dog-friendly local coffee shop) for a puppuccino as a yummy birthday treat!
We all know that dogs love to be petted and scratched. But did you know that they like a good massage just as much as you do? Find your nearest dog massage therapist and set up an appointment for a dreamy massage as a dog birthday gift your pup will love!
Does your dog love attention? Most likely. If you have a friendly, social pup that loves meeting people, get them a bandana announcing that it’s their birthday as a dog birthday gift. Then take them for a walk around the town and let them soak up ALL the attention from friends and strangers giving them lots of extra love on their day. It will make them feel as extra-special as they truly are.
After all the special attention, games, dog birthday gifts, and treats, your dog will eventually get tired. Make their nap time extra blissful with a brand new orthopedic dog bed. These beds are specially designed to be a comfort to your dog’s frame and neck and offer an invitingly plush-soft surface for your pup to snuggle into. It will be so comfy your dog might let you have your own bed to yourself for once! But don’t worry, you’ll probably still wake up to those sweet little morning puppy kisses on your cheeks.
Last but not least, what your dog wants most, on their birthday or any day, is just to spend time with you. As a dog birthday gift, simply take some time from your busy day to make their big day special and play some fun summer games with your pup. Play some water games, teach them a new game or trick, play fetch, make a treat scavenger hunt in the backyard, let some bubbles fly for your dog to chase, or invite their furry bestie over for a doggie play date.
