Spoiling Your Pooch on His Birthday

If your beloved pooch is approaching his birthday, chances are you will want to spoil him rotten! After all, you keep him healthy throughout the other 364 days of the year, so why not let him enjoy himself on his big day? However, it can be tricky to know what to buy for your dog, aside from his favourite treats. Here are some ideas to inspire you...

A new bed
There's nothing like jumping into a comfy, soft bed each night. Sleep is so important; something that is no different for animals, who need the time to recuperate and let their muscles rest. You wouldn't necessarily go years and years without replacing your bed, so why should your furry friend be any different? For some extra special, check out the range of Muddy Paws dog beds, which are high quality and suitable for all kinds of dogs.

Your pal probably loves nothing more than running around the nearest park with you; chewing their toys and playing with sticks. Their favourite toys are probably those that are battered beyond belief, so there's no point trying to replace those, but what you can do is buy a few new treasures to add to their toy box! It can be anything from a simple ball (if you kick it around for them, they'll go crazy!) or a sturdy tug-of-war rope. Here's a top tip - if you're all worn out by the end of the day, a new chew toy will keep them occupied.

Edible greetings cards
Yes, you heard right - greetings cards that dogs can eat! These are sold all over the internet these days and can make a welcome change from the rigmarole of bones, pigs ears etc. It's something really special (and tasty!) for their birthday, which they likely won't have had before. These come in a range of designs and are usually made from rawhide, making them great for keeping pooch's teeth clean too.
