Host A Doggy Paw'ty


Paw'ty Time!

Looking to celebrate with your pooch?  Why not throw a paw'ty for your dog?!

All you need is a few friends, a safe space for dogs, a few decorations, some dog-friendly snacks & a sense of humour! 

Here are a few ideas to help get you started!

Pawt'y Guests

Create your guest list.

This is not really the best time for new K9 introductions, in this situation, it's best to invite dogs who already know and like each other.
Keep numbers at a minimum especially if this is your first time hosting a doggy party. 


happy pooch


Here are a few songs that we have used for our playlist at bark-day parties, Howl-o-ween, Christmas paw'rade - even a street paw'ty. 

   Woof! There It Is

Big Dog Akon 

Every Dog Has its Day  JaJa Biggs 

       Chihuahua (Beverly Hills Chihuahua Version)  

Atomic Dog

       Scooby Doo, Where Are You? 


 party balloons 

Paw'ty Games

Bobbing For Tennis Balls

All you need is a paddling pool, water and a few balls   


Musical Sit

 Same rules as Musical chairs except when you sit in the chair your dog must be in a sit too - winner gets a toy or treat  

Simon Says

The same rules apply - winner gets a toy or treat


Musical Statues

Same rules apply - both dog and handler must stop & stand still - winner gets a toy or treat


Pass the Paw'cel

When the music stops unwrap a layer, find a treat and pass it on.


Sausage Relay Race

 Evenly place a x4 pieces of sausage in a straight line with a finishing line at the end. The winner is the first through the line.  If there is any sausage left the player is disqualified.


Egg and Spoon Race

You and your dog run as a team - instead of an egg use a tennis ball


 Birthday Boy


Party Nibbles & Drinks

No party is complete without a few cakes and bakes! 

You can buy them ready-made or, you can make your own.
