How to Celebrate Your Pet's Birthday
If you create a BaxterBoo pet profile and tell us your pet's birthday or adoption day, you'll get:
Everyone loves an excuse to get together, and your pet's birthday can be a crowd pleaser! Invite friends and their dogs from the dog park (if they play well together.) Neighborhood friends or a few family members would also make great invitees.
Keep it simple and don't invite the whole world to keep the chaos to a minimum. Keep in mind though that part of the charm of pets is their unpredictability. So expect some photo/video opportunities including bloopers!
Remember, always keep human treats and pet treats on separate tables!
Try setting up an agility course and lure pets through the obstacles with treats. You could try one of our agility kits or invent your own course with things around the house. Get those cameras ready to capture the fun!
Another great dog birthday game idea is to make a puppy pinata. Instead of candy, fill a pinata full of dog treats. This works particularly well with larger dogs who will love tearing into the tissue paper and cardboard. Monitor the fun to make sure no one gets too feisty or guards the food.
Maybe a pet party seems overwhelming to you or you know your pup is more of an introvert. Or... perhaps your pet is a cat! It's perfectly fine to just keep the day simple and do your pet's favorite things. Maybe you visit a new dog park or take a new trail.
Yeah, I would have preferred CATNIP!
