So, your pooch's birthday is coming up in no time and you're running around trying to prepare the perfect celebration, right? These puppy birthday gift ideas are worth considering, especially if you're the type of gal who loooooves to spoil her sweetest furry friend! Let's be real: you can spoil them anytime of the year.
1. A BOWTIE (OR BANDANA)
Deck out your beautiful furbaby in a delicate bowtie or bandana! Crew Lala has some fabulous options, including an exclusive Valentine's Day collection.
Be with your pet from anywhere throughout your day with PetChatz! During the moments you miss your pet the most, simply connect through your computer, tablet or smartphone. Then, chat with your pet. This keeps your sweetie company and allows them to see your face and receive some quick comfort.
A ThunderShirt applies gentle, constant pressure, similar to swaddling an infant in order to ensure safety and calm for your furry friend during scary moments like fireworks on Independence Day or thunderstorms on the regular.
4. PET UMBRELLA
I'm swooning over these adorable pet protectors! If you live in a rainy place like me, your puppies may be hating the weather. Using a pet umbrella is super unnecessary and super boujee, I'm aware, but it sure is cute! ;)
Similar to the Thundershirt, but for doggies that may not like tighter physical contact to their body, the ZenCrate is amazing for thunder or fireworks! It's estimated that over 20% of all dogs suffer from separation anxiety or fear of loud noises. Incorporating the latest technology, the ZenCrate automatically detects when an animal goes inside and immediately begins playing calming music.
The ZenCrate is designed to quiet sounds from outside noises and also keep the music inside. In addition, there is reduced light exposure and the confined design helps calm the pup once it enters. There's also vibration-damping technology to reduce the noticeability of vibrations from thunder or machinery. It's made in America, eco-friendly and optimized for pet safety!
6. BOWSER BEER
Yes, beer for dogs... Bowser Beer is a unique brand that offers beer beverages for your pups. You can even choose from an ale, porter and more. Consumption for every dog is different – some dogs like to slurp the beer straight out of the bowl, while others like it poured over their kibble to make dinner extra special. YUM! Get 'em a doggy cigar while you're browsing their shop ;)
A monthly subscription service, similar to Blue Apron or Birchbox for humans, Barkbox is just the ticket to surprising your pet! For $21-29/month (depending on dog size), you receive a themed collection - their New York pack included taxi cab, Chinese takeout box with mini dumplings and Statue of Liberty toys.
8. PUPPY CAKE
Need some cake to go with your beer!? It's a celebration after all! A Shark Tank sensation, Puppy Cake offers bakeable mixes for your special hound, AND ice cream! Will you select red velvet or peanut butter cake mix? Topped with maple bacon or carob ice cream? It's puppy Heaven!
9. THE KOOLINATOR
C'mon, in the summer months your dog is HOT and has no ability to cool off by itself. Sure, it can mosey over to its boring old bowl and slurp some water, OR it can use a stylish doggie fountain called The Koolinator! With a constant availability of fresh water and easy press pad for water release, your pup will thank you.
How do you best spoil your furry friend?
