Every dog deserves to be spoiled, as they are man’s best friend. When their birthday or even just a special holiday happens, they deserve a special treat. Here are some of the best dog birthday cake recipes you can treat your furry friend to.

Though baking a cake can be a great way to celebrate your dog, it is important to make sure all the ingredients are dog friendly. Peanut butter is a popular ingredient in dog treats, but some brands include xylitol, which can be deadly to dogs. Some dogs also have a harder time digesting foods with all-purpose flour, so whole wheat and brown rice can be a better option.
