Dog Cakes From The Dog Bakery

What Makes A Great Dog Birthday Cake?

Not all dog birthday cakes are created equal! When you're choosing a birthday cake for your precious pup, there are a few things you want to look for.

The first and most important aspect of a dog birthday cake is the ingredients. Look for quality, organic ingredients that won't upset your dog’s digestion. Lots of dog birthday cakes use oats as a main ingredient. Oats are fine for dogs to have! So are ingredients like brown rice, pumpkin, blueberries, and eggs.

If your dog has any specific allergies, be sure to tell your bakery. Many dog bakeries can make substitutions for birthday cakes made to order. Some dogs have issues with wheat and other grains, so it's good to let your bakery know in advance. You don't want your pup to have a stomachache on their birthday!
