7 Tips for an unforgettable birthday for your pet

Your dog or cat is much more than an animal: it is a family member. Other family members celebrate their birthdays every year, so why not our pets? With fun snacks, happy activities and visitors on the floor, this is how you organise a real party for your party animal.

Gifts for your dog or cat

A birthday is a perfect time to buy that nice scratching post or gorgeous collar. Or surprise the furry birthday boy or girl with fun toys. Check out this blog on why that's a good idea anyway!

Theme party

With a theme party, you really unpack. Is your dog a wild man who likes to run across the field all day long? Then have the party at the dog walking field. If your cat loves to cuddle, put cushions everywhere and enjoy a relaxed lazy party.

Save the date

The next step is the invitations. If you have a dog, you can invite all his canine friends. Cats don't find visits from their peers as pleasant. Is your dog or cat not so fond of visitors? Then keep the party small or private.

Festive dog snacks and cat treats

Especially on his birthday, you want the best dog snacks or cat treats for the birthday boy. But if you really want to impress, treat your dog to a delicious doggy cake! You can spoil your cat with delicious bonbons or by making a festive cake from a tub of wet food. A dog chew bone or kitten treats are also a good idea!

Photos as memories

Make it a party to remember with super cute photos of the birthday boy or girl. Create a small studio with fun props (and some dog biscuits and cat snacks to distract the furry friends for a few seconds) and click away! Read here photography tips for your pet.

Animal-friendly games for all

Your dog or cat is obviously not going to sit still all afternoon chatting. It's much more fun to play games. Play candy-hide game with your dog or cat or go fetch or frisbee with the dog mob. 

Quality post-party time

Once everyone is out the door again, it's time for some extra quality time. Start by giving your dog or cat the best dog food or the best cat food and spend an hour playing or cuddling with him. Take a brisk walk with the dog or let your cat romp around with some catnip. This way, you will end the festive day with a (animal-friendly) 'bang'!
