How to Throw a Birthday Party for Your Dog

ID-10055332Show your sweet pooch how much you appreciate him by throwing him or her a birthday party. It will be so much fun to celebrate the day he was brought into this world or at least into your life.

Here’s what you need to do to throw a birthday party for your dog.

Find a Location

You can choose to have a party at a park, your home, or another place that allows pets. Speak to the location owner to find out if there are any limits to the number of dogs you can have at the party.

Set a Date

Most dog owners enjoy spending time with their pets on Saturdays and Sundays during the afternoon. These are two of the best times to have a party.

Food for Man and Man’s Best Friend

When people go to a party, they want to eat. When dogs go to a party, they don’t expect to eat, but they would love to do it. Purchase some treats and different kinds of dog foods. For the humans, have finger foods available such as cheese and crackers, meatballs, pigs in a blanket, and maybe even hot dogs for those wiener dog lovers.

Drinks Are Essential

Dogs will be running the entire time, so they will get thirsty. Have bowls of water set up. The more, the better, and make sure they stay filled as the party goes on.

For the owners, have some water, wine, beer, soda, and other beverages you know they enjoy. This will help wash down the great food goodies available.

Decorate for Humans

Your furry friend and his canine friends won’t notice all the decorations, but the owners will. Decorate it in a dog theme with photos of your pooch everywhere, streamers, and balloons.

Organize Game Time

Dogs love to play with their owners, so encourage playtime during the party by bringing everyone together for a few games. You can even do contests and give out prizes for the winners. You can do gift baskets of biscuits, toys, and special treats. You could also give away toys as prizes.

Hire a DJ

Dog owners will love listening to the music, and they may even dance. Their dogs can dance around them!

By thinking about dog and owner, you will be able to throw a fun party with your precious doggie as guest of honor.
