Three Types of Pooch Puppy Parties #PuppyShower #DogBirthdayParty #PoochPawty

We have narrowed down our top three dog party occasions – but is there really a reason to NOT celebrate? Dog parties can be held for any reason, but these three are our favorites.

Puppy Showers:
Welcome home your furry new family member in style. Not just for puppies, puppy showers can be for newly adopted pooches, too! Puppy Showers are a great way to introduce your new family member and get them used to strangers. But remember to plan lots of rest time so your new pup doesn’t get overwhelmed.

Bruffday Parties:
Let your pooch unleash their inner party animal. Celebrate their special day with decorations, games and of course… cake! Invite all your friends and their pups or celebrate with just the birthday dog and human friends.

Company Events:
Plan a day at a park where everyone can bring their dogs for a puppy play date. Treats for the two- and four- legged friends are a must. This is a great team-building activity for corporations and a fun way to celebrate your summer picnic.

Petiquette: The do's and don'ts of hosting a puppy party #PuppyShower #DogBirthdayParty #PoochPawty

Practicing a little petiquette will make sure your dog party is perfect. Follow these tips to make sure every pooch gets along and every human enjoys the party. There isn’t anything more fun than a puppy party and adding some extra attention to petiquette will make sure every dog has its day.

  • Host your event in an enclosed area, preferably one that is neutral for all attendees.
  • Provide plenty of puppy poo-poo bags.
  • Separate people and pooch food, keeping it out of reach from the largest pooches – be mindful of allergies for pooches and humans.
  • Allow only well-adjusted pups that play well with others off-leash.
  • Provide treats and toys for all 4-legged friends.
  • Make sure the young pups get multiple times to rest throughout the party – preferably in a quiet space away from all the activity.

Invitations and Favors for Puppy Parties #PuppyShower #DogBirthdayParty #PuppyPawty

Dog party invitations and favors for all your dog friends are two important details you will not want to overlook when planning your puppy party.

Invitations to a puppy party contain vital party information and also introduce guests to the idea of a paw-ty. This is a good way to inform them if it’s humans only or if furry friends are welcome, too!

Dog party favors are a must-have for both humans and pups. If the guest of honor is the only pooch at the party, you can still send home a doggy bag of goodies for the furry friends at home.

When decorating the party space, arrange place settings for the people and the pooches. Have a “Chew” and “Slurp” bowls ready for pups when they arrive and provide water in multiple locations. A custom banner is a must-have dog party decoration for your furry friend’s celebration and it will make a great keepsake afterward. Provide dog-themed food such as puppy chow, pupcorn or pupcakes (aka popcorn or cupcakes). Bone-shaped cookie cutters are a paw-sitively adorable way to cut finger foods. For the pups, bake a special puppy cake in a bone-shaped cake pan to display as a table centerpiece. offers numerous music ideas, game ideas and recipes to make your dog party a success.
