If you’re feeling down, planning the ultimate dog’s birthday party is a surefire mood booster. Even better, if you can create adorable and picture worthy moments from it to share with your friends and family.

You gotta have a pup-cake

For an Instagram-worthy photo-op, you can order a custom dog birthday cake from a Manu of the ridiculously cute Dog Bakery in your town (or on Etsy). Or, for all you extra ambitious dog parents, try your hand at baking our dog birthday cake recipe.

If you and your dog have more of a hankering for ice cream, stores like Petsmart carry specialty ice treats made just for dogs. Pick out your pup’s favorite flavor: peanut butter, vanilla, or birthday cake are all good choices.

If dog cake and dog ice cream don’t sound particularly appealing, assemble some goodie bags filled with dog treats, dog toys, and a surprise for your human guests. Everyone likes to go home with party favors!

Party hats for party dogs 

A party theme appropriate birthday hat or bandana is such a cute way to identify the birthday dog. Browse Amazon, Etsy, or any pet store for the hat that suits your dog best.

Feeling extra crafty? Go the DIY route with materials you probably have lying around the house.

Do up the decor

You’re going to want pics, so why not put together a fun setting with cute dog party decorations? Picking a party theme will make it easier to choose party decorations, not to mention invitations, party games, goodies, and accessories for your best friend.

A photo booth is a fun addition to your dog’s birthday bash. Pick up a set of dog-approved photo booth props from Target, and you’re good to go.

Party at the dog park

Host your dog’s special day at a dog park so he or she can frolic and bask in the fresh air with all the doggy friends. Or consider an alternative dog-friendly venue to spice things up (think: the beach or a pet-friendly restaurant).

Your dog’s crew will have a ball at any leashed-in, dog-friendly space where everyone can play.

As pet parents, we want to make every day a special one for our canine buds. There’s no doubt about it—we’re loving all the creative ways dog owners are celebrating man’s best friend.

So, happy birthday to all the dogs out there! Feel free to celebrate seven times a year. They deserve it
