Hosting a party for your dog is a lot like holding a party for your child- lots of clamor, thrill, games, food, gifts, and occasional squabble. While your dog may not be aware of what a party is, he or she will surely appreciate the love and affection extended to him. To help you host an epic dog party, here are a few tips to get you started.

Select a Perfect Venue

Like any party, having a perfect location will undoubtedly contribute to your party’s success. Depending on the number of pups you want to host, budget, a number of human guests, and the climate zone, an outdoor venue such as a dog park or a fenced backyard in your home might be a good fit.

Send Party Invites

While it might be tempting to invite every dog friend you furry friend has, it is important to remember that dog parties are supposed to be entertaining and safe, and you do not have to fret about fights breaking out. Pick the perfect invite being mindful of dogs that get along well with each other. You can order special invitation cards or you can design creative ones yourself.

Make Tasty Pup-cakes

Like humans, dogs too love tasty dishes. And since dogs cannot eat many ingredients that humans enjoy such as walnuts, grapes, and chocolate, you can use ingredients available in your house to make tasty goodies. Most pet stores offer various gourmet options. Use good quality ingredients with less sugar and salt. Be sure to ask your guests in advance if their dogs have food allergies.

Plan Party Activities

It is a party and it is supposed to be fun. Therefore, including some activities to keep the dogs busy during the party would do the trick. Pick up a handful of rope toys for a tug of war. Gather some balls equivalent to the number of guest for a dog-friendly ball pit. Conceal a few treats around the venue and proclaim the dog who finds most the winner. You can also consider having a costume party.

Create Doggy Bags

Order or design doggy bags for your guests to take home. Fill the bags with treats and toys. Not only will the pet owner appreciate the gesture but so will the dog.
There are hundreds of ways you can perfectly host a successful dog party. The above tips will help you get started.
