10 Ways To Celebrate Your Vizsla’s Birthday
1. Spoil Your Vizsla With Special Dog Treats
Why not pamper your pup with their favorite treats on their birthday?
Whether you make homemade dog treats or head to the pet shop, spoiling your vizsla with yummy dog treats is a pup approved way to celebrate your dog’s birthday.
These are some of my favorite dog treats:
- These homemade frozen yogurt and strawberry treats are so easy to make.
- This peanut butter ice cream for dogs is a firm favorite.
- A long lasting bacon flavored chew is ideal for heavy chewers.
2. Buy Your Vizsla A New Toy
What better way to celebrate your vizsla’s birthday than with a brand new toy!
Whether it’s a new ball for the park, a soft toy to carry around in their mouth at home or something fun to play with in the back yard, a new toy is always going to be a winner with your pup.

3. Spend The Day Outdoors
We all know how much our vizslas love to be outdoors, so why not spend their birthday exploring the outdoors together?
- Swimming at the lake
- Dodging the waves at the beach
- Playing in the river
- Or just an extra long walk off leash…
Your vizsla will relish the adventure with you on their special day.
4. Bake A Dog Birthday Cake
A birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without a doggie birthday cake? And don’t worry, you don’t need to be a chef to bake a great dog cake!
You could just bake a small dog cake for one, some easy pupcakes to share with a close doggie friend or a dog birthday cake for a bigger dog birthday party celebration.
Be sure to make your cake or pupcakes with dog friendly ingredients and remove any wrappers and decorations before serving.
5. Take Plenty Of Dog Birthday Photos
Capture the magic of your dog’s birthday with plenty of photographs.
Whether they’re unwrapping presents, munching on cake, playing with friends and hanging out with you, these photos will be cherished memories for years to come.
You could even set up a special photo booth and buy some cute birthday dog accessories like these for some fun and memorable vizsla birthday photos!
6. Invite A Doggie Friend Over
If going out isn’t possible, why not invite one of their doggie friends over for a birthday playdate?
Bake some treats or pupcakes to share, play their favorite games and let them revel in the company of their best buddy.
7. Host A Doggie Birthday Party
A dog birthday party is a super fun way to celebrate a vizsla birthday, particularly if it’s their first birthday!
You’ll need a doggie birthday cake, fun dog birthday decorations, some doggie games to play and plenty of treats for the humans too!
A puppy party bundle like this is an easy way to get started planning your vizsla party.
8. Spend The Day Hanging Out Together
We all know how much our vizslas like hanging out with us – or on us! So what better way to celebrate their birthday than spending the whole day hanging out together at home.
Play their favorite games, teach them a new trick, go for a long walk, feed them their favorite foods and share plenty of cuddles.
Your kids could even color them some fun pictures with our unique vizsla coloring pages.
Your vizsla will love the extra one on one time and so will you!
9. Treat Them To New Gear
If your dog needs any new gear, their birthday is the perfect time to splurge on something nice.
10. Go Away For The Weekend
If you live in the city and don’t get a chance to let your vizsla roam off lead much, why not get away for a birthday weekend with the whole family?
Find some dog friendly accommodation with open spaces close by and let your vizsla enjoy all the new places and smells as they explore off lead with you.
