Your dog's special day is coming up and you want to make sure they have the best day ever, here are some tips to create the best birthday party for your dog!

  1. The first thing you need to consider is the size of your dog party. How many dogs and humans will you be inviting? Will you be inviting just a few close friends, or do you want to make it a big celebration? Once you know how many pups will be attending, you can start working on the details. 
  2. The second thing you should consider is will the party be indoors or outdoors? Having a party outdoors allows for more space, fresh air and less of a clean up. The biggest con to hosting a party outdoors is the sun, there will hardly be shade out to cover your entire party. That’s why hosting a party indoors can be more ideal, especially if you pick a place that specializes in dog parties and includes tear down and clean up services. (Which means that you don’t have to worry about cleaning up and you can enjoy the party with the rest of your friends and family).
  3. If you are planning on purchasing balloons, table covers or even fun games for everyone to enjoy you can make a stop at any store you know that supplies the items you need. 
  4. What is a party without dessert?! Well you don’t need dessert but it definitely is a plus. If you are local to LA you can check out Paw Mentality, they specialize in cakes and homemade treats that not only taste good but offer a lot of nutritional benefits for your dogs.

It really depends on the size of your party and what kind of amenities you're looking for. You'll also need to factor in the cost of food and treats for your guests, as well as any decorations or special activities you have planned. 

What are some fun dog birthday party ideas?

1. Set up a photo booth with fun props to snap some memories of the special day. For some extra fun, bring a polaroid or film camera. It’s always a fun surprise when you receive the pictures, plus, you can hang them on your fridge after so you can always remember how much fun you had.

2. Play some games! Ever heard of Musical Sits? It’s just like Musical Chairs…but for dogs! You must have someone in charge of the music for this game. Have each dog and their owner walk around and the person in charge of the music will pause the song and each owner has to tell their dogs to sit. Whoever’s dog sits and stays moves on to the next round. Continue the process until you have the grand prize winner! 

  • 3. Fetch is always a great idea for any party, but you can always add some props to take it to the next level! Bring a tunnel for the dogs to go through, cones for some agility fun and even a bubble maker - the dogs will go WILD!
