Play some games

Make your pets happy by spending some extra time with them with some fun games. 

Tug of war for your doggo and their friends 

If you’re a dog parent you know how much your dog loves to play tug of war! Here’s how you can play it with their friends - 

Make teams. Two doggos tug over one rope. The doggo who manages to get the rope wins! The team with the most winners gets extra treats as a prize! 

Chase the frisbee 

If you have some extra open space, this is an amazing game to play with your dog and his/her friends! Gather all the dogs and throw the frisbee! Let the dogs chase & have a gala time because there are no losers in this game! 

Chase the ‘prey” for cats 

Cats are natural hunters. They love to be sneaky and attack their prey. So for their birthday, get them a new toy that stimulates their interest. Get a stick toy that has a string and a mouse attached to it. You can even stuff catnip if the toy has an empty crevice. 

Host a party 

Host a pet birthday party! Call some of your pet’s friends and their pet parents over, serve them some cake and treats, play games and make pet goodie bags with toys and treats. If you do not have enough space in your house, consider looking at places that host pet birthday parties. This is a sure-shot way for you and your pet to have fun on their birthday! 

Gift them a grooming session 

Give your pet a dapper new look! You can gift your pet a day full of pampering along with a grooming session to make them look and feel special. For a total diva treatment- call a groomer home! A spa day at home can be the perfect way to spoil your pet on their birthday.  

Do good for the community 

There is always joy in giving. One way to make your pet’s day extra happy is by sharing the joy. You can sponsor a pet at a nearby shelter or donate. Here are some organizations in our country that look after stray and abandoned animals:

  •  ResQ Charitable Trust 
  • VOSD- A dog’s best friend 
  •  Karma Foundation
  • AMKM- Animals Matter To Me
  • Blue Cross of India
  • Cat cafe studio
  • Save Our Strays
  • World For All
  • Friendicoes
  • People For Animals Bangalore  

Let your pet pick out their gift 

Take your pet to your local pet store and let them choose a gift for themselves! This way your pet can join you on a new adventure and get a new toy! 

Take them for a swim! 

Okay, so this idea works only for dogs. Taking them out for a swim is an amazing way to celebrate their birthday, especially in the summers. Take them to a beach or local dog-friendly swimming pools, you can even host a pool party for your doggo and his/her friends. 

We hope these ideas help you to make your pet’s special day extra special and they have an amazing birthday!
