Set the Mood 

Every party needs a little decor to liven up the atmosphere. Weather permitting, you might consider holding the celebration outdoors. Balloons, banners, and favorite toys can all be easily taken outside. There’s nothing like a romp in fresh grass or the smell of BBQ to get tails wagging! 

Provide Refreshments

Prepare some homemade goodies or your dog’s favorite treats. To add to the festivities, we recommend birthday themed snacks like those in this Ultimate Birthday Set. Dog-safe ice cream and birthday cake flavored biscuits are a fabulous way to wrap up the fiesta!

Prepare the Basics

Have enough necessities available for other dogs if there will be canine guests. This includes several water bowls and sufficient dog bathrooms or pee pads if you plan on having the party indoors. 

Invite Friends and Family

Who you invite will depend on your pup and what kind of company they enjoy. Some dogs may prefer to hang out with one or two close friends or prefer only human company, while other canines think the more, the merrier. Invite whichever guests will make the day an exciting but stress-free day for your pup. 

Document the Fun

Finally, make sure to take plenty of photos of your dog’s special day! You’ll want to remember their interactions with furry friends and their responses to presents. Plus, you can never have enough pictures of your dog in an adorable birthday hat

There you have it. Just a couple of steps for making your pup’s bday bash a day to remember. If you snap some pics, send some our way -- we’d love to see your dogs in all their birthday glory!
