If you intend to invite your furkid’s dog friends over to make it one giant puppy fest, you’ll probably need to look for a large enough space to accommodate all the dogs running around. Dog-friendly parks and beaches with a good balance of sun and shade make for a great location, however indoor animal-approved function rooms and chalets work as well. Just be sure that there is still an outdoor area at your party for all those inevitable “puppy potty” trips.Goodie bags Source: Enhanceyourhome
One way to really spice up your party and make it a memorable experience for everyone, is to give out doggy treats in goodie bags as your guests are leaving. Your pup’s friends will be more than happy with these treats, and their owners very pleased with your generosity!Pet-ivities Source: Marthastewart
Party games don’t just have to be limited to human parties. Whether its playing an intense game of catching the ball, throwing sticks or simply letting your dog run around with his friends, dog games can be a great bonding time for both the dogs as well as human guests. Furthermore, you can set up an instant-print photo booth with props and some dog costumes for everyone to snap a couple of memorable photographs. All you need is a backdrop, a Polaroid camera and a few funky hats and glasses and you’re ready to go!R&R
For the safety of the doggies running around, do ensure that there is plenty of water available for them to keep hydrated. If you are throwing an outdoor party, you can even consider preparing some “pupsicles” of frozen soup or water in food dishes for them to lick and stay cool as the hours go by. For dogs that want to take a break from the games and constant interaction, set out a corner with blankets, pillows and chew toys for them to lay down in, and they’ll be grateful for the moment’s rest!Cake Source: Gopetplan
And of course, what’s a party without cake? There are plenty of options for cakes that both dogs and humans can eat. If you’re familiar with baking for your furry friend, you can consider a D-I-Y cake. If not, you can purchase a dog cake mix, or order a cake from a pet bakery in Singapore. These bakeries specialize in cupcakes, cookies and birthday cakes for dogs that are nutritious and delicious, and also look great for the photos!
As with all parties, remember to plan everything in advance and send out your invites early! Follow our tips and you’re sure to have a puppy party worth remembering for many dog years to come!
