We’ve found some show-stopping decorations, adorable pawty attire and tasty treats, that will help you to celebrate your dog’s birthday in style.

Birthday Cake

Just as Jo Brand said, “Birthdays are nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake.” Whether you’re human or have four fluffy paws, everyone deserves a cake or treat for their birthday. There’s plenty of options here for you to treat your dog to the ultimate treat of their dreams.

Home-made Pupcakes

For all of you budding bakers out there, try baking one of our recipes from our virtual Great Doggy Bakeoff with Doggy Desserts.

Bake your own cakes and treats with these dog-themed baking moulds. Worthy enough of a Paul Hollywoof handshake.

Pupcake Mix

Life is so much easier with a boxed cake mix, especially when it’s designed just for dogs. I can’t count the number of times I’ve spent ‘Googling’ the perfect pup-cake only to make something that resembles a ‘Nailed It’ worthy winner. This cake mix takes away all the stress.

This cake mix includes all the necessary organic powders and flavours to make your doggie lick its whiskers! This human-grade mix has unique natural powders that are both tasty and healthy for your pooch.

Dog Bakery Cake

Sometimes it’s better to leave the cake baking to the professionals. For an Insta-worthy shot, you can order a custom dog cake from a local dog bakery. Celebrate your dog’s birthday with one of these mouth-watering wonders.

Give a Dog a Bone Cake

We love this tasty party cake from Four Legged Fancies, made with human-grade ingredients and natural colouring. It’s a gluten free sponge in either chicken, cheese or peanut butter. On the top it has melted yoghurt drops coloured pretty pink with natural beetroot! It looks good enough for us humans to eat.

They also use healthy botanicals such as aniseed, flaxseed, activated charcoal, parsley, mint, rosemary to boost your dog’s digestion – so it’s a tail-wagging winner!

Mutts about Pupcorn Cake

Is your dog mutts about pupcorn? To make it really special, put on a dog-related movie while your dogs tuck in.
