How to Throw a Furtastic Dog Party
03.18.19

Our sweet pups are a huge part of our lives here at Team IAE. Their antics keep us laughing and their need to explore (and pee) gets us out of the office and into the California sunshine. We love celebrating our furry family members. Here are some helpful tips for creating a furtastic birthday party for your four-legged friends.

Location & Necessities
Choose a safe, controlled environment - like a fenced-in backyard. If that’s not possible, consider local dog parks or beaches that allow dogs. Wherever you host your celebration, ensure an abundance of play space as well as shade, blankets, and beds for your pup and their guests to rest and catch their breath. And don’t forget to place dog water bowls throughout the party!

Dog Party Decorations & Themes
Your theme should be just as unique as your pup. Take into consideration your dog’s favorite activities, treats, and toys. If your pup is anything like Ilana’s fluffy golden retriever, Waldo, playing fetch and munching on a green tennis ball are must-haves. For a tennis-themed dog pawty, use a bold color palette of bright greens accented with blacks and whites. Have fun with balloons and get creative with signage using witty word-play to complete the decor.

Human Treats & Dog Treats
Have fun with your human bites and think about keeping the food selection in theme with your party. Puns are a plus! Consider pupperoni pizza, puppy chow, or a hot dog bar with interesting toppings for guests to mix and match. Don’t leave the furry friends out of the fun; find your nearest dog bakery and stock up on fun dog treats customized to match your pup’s party theme.

Thank your furry friends and their owners with a doggy bag to-go full of toys and treats. Don’t be afraid to include necessities like dog poop bags and a collapsible water bowl – their owners are sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness. From treats to fun, this will be an unfurgettable dog party for your pup and his furry friends.

Woof Woof,
