Get out your Whoopee Cushions, your false teeth, and your silly string and prepare your most elaborate fake story because everyone’s favorite ridiculous holiday is finally here, April Fools Day! Whoo whoo! Woof woof!
As many of you dog owners probably already know, April Fools Day is even better when a dog is involved. Just imagine the possibilities. Your dog won’t get offended and is much easier to prank than a person. I know, it may seem a little unfair but have some fun, this only happens once a year!

So, grab your dog and prepare because we are bringing you the best April Fools pranks to do to your dog. We’ve also included several that sound fun (and would be the greatest thing ever) but are probably best to never do them because they’re mean and everyone will hate you. Let’s start with the good ideas then make our way down to the bad. Here we go!
- Throw 15 tennis balls to your dog at once.
Your dog won’t know what to do. He’ll be saying, “Is this my ball? Is that my ball? I want all the balls!” It’s fun for the whole dog family and a great prank all around.
- Dress up as a giant stuffed animal and wake your dog up from a nap.
If you missed the viral video of a guy dressing up as his dog’s favorite toy, watch it below. You should basically re-create this video, have someone record it and then send it to me. Please?
- Bring home a friend’s dog and pretend you are keeping it forever.
If you really want to make the prank elaborate bring in the dog bed, the crate, the dog bowl, leashes, etc. Your dog will hate you for it but he’ll forgive you later…maybe.
- Pretend there is a squirrel outside by saying, “SQUIRREL!”
This is a prank I usually do at least once a week. It’s a fun way to get your dog (or a friend’s dog) excited and a great way to annoy the hell out of your dog. The determined look on their face and the endless hunt for squirrels that aren’t there is pure entertainment.
- Put socks on your dog
They’ll look like this and everyone will love it…except your dog. Hey, at least their feet are warm!
- Hide their toy or ball somewhere they can’t reach
Put it on a shelf, on top of the fridge, under the mattress, on the mantle. I know this is a real asshole move but it’s fun to watch your dog’s nose go to work. Don’t tease them for too long though, that’s just cruel.
- Find a Mirascope Mirage Hologram and Be an Asshole Like This Guy
This guy is a dog prank master but he’s not nice! I’m not laughing, I swear.
- Drive in the parking lot of the vet
This one is the worst! Am I a bad person for even thinking of this? Probably! Drive into the parking lot of the vet, and then quickly drive away! It’s April Fools Day but this prank can’t last for too long. We all know how scared dogs are of the vet. I am a horrible person.
- Pretend to throw a ball and throw NOTHING!
Poor dogs. Why are humans so annoying?
Our dogs are awesome and should never be teased but if you HAVE to mess with your dog, do it on April Fools Day! Have fun and I hope your dog can take a joke!
