We rescued Klark from a local humane society back in 2019. He’s a German Shepherd, Doberman Pinscher mix and the biggest sweetheart and cuddle bug you will ever meet! He loves going for walks, playing fetch, and swimming – he’s the best dog we could’ve ever asked for.

Ingredients Used For Klark’s Dog Friendly Birthday Cake

Klark’s obsessed with both peanut butter and applesauce, so I decided to make these the focused ingredients within his cake. The peanut butter gives the cake a great taste most dogs enjoy, while the applesauce prevents it from being too dry. The perfect combination!

I recommend adding Greek yogurt to the frosting to make for a fluffier, creamier topping. Add a special design made out of dog treats to top the cake – we added a 3 for Klark’s third birthday.

The recipe makes about four servings, but keep in mind Klark’s a larger dog. So for smaller dogs, this cake will make around eight servings.

Gift Ideas For the Birthday Pup

Klark loves to retrieve his squeaker ball. So if your pup is anything like Klark, what better gift than purchasing your dog a Chuckit!? This gift will not only keep them strong and healthy, but also use up their endless amount of energy.

The Dog Kong is another great gift that will hold your pups attention. Klark loves his peanut butter, so placing some within the dog kong will keep his attention for nearly half an hour.
