It’s a puppy party and it’s time to have some fun in honour of your furry bestie

Our dogs are our best friends. They are there for us when nobody else is and stick by our sides through it all. In saying this, can you even think of one good reason not to throw a birthday bash for your precious pooch? We think not.

Keep reading for some pawesomely inspiring ways to throwing the pawfect bash for your dog…

1. Pick a present he or she will love

Have a look at your local pet store and see what toys they have that you think your dog will love. From a new chew toy, a Kong filled with peanut butter or even just a new collar. Treat your dog!

2. Decorate!

Streamers, balloons and party decor are the aim of the game! Of course, you need to make sure that any streamers and balloons are out fo reach for your precious pooch to sink her teeth into.

But have a look online or at your local party shop for any dog-themed decor - you will be surprised as to what you come across!

3. Make a cake your dog can eat

There are some awesome recipes out there on how to make a tasty cake for your dog!

So put on your baking apron and get to mixing, making and baking!

Of course, if baking is not your thing, then pop into your pet store and see what doggie treats you can pick up from here. It might even be worth asking around if there are any bakers in the area who make treats specifically for dogs!

4. Dress up your dog

From cute little bandanas, jerseys (for winter of course) or even just a sparkly collar, make sure your dog is dressed for the occasion. But just don’t force your precious pooch into wearing anything he doesn’t want to.

5. Don't forget to feed the humans

Give your friends an incentive to come over and celebrate your dog with you!

Make sure you put together some fingers food and drinks for your friends to dive into such as chicken wings, pasta salads, pita bread and dips and don’t forget about some cocktails too!

6. Do something special just you and your dog

On the morning or day of your dog’s birthday, do something special. Whether you make him breakfast in bed with a special treat or go for a walk together to a new park with new and exciting smells - do something that your dog will feel special over.

7. Make some party favours for your guests

Put together some party bags with treats and goodies for your guests to take home to their dogs, including a small toy, a treat, a party hat and even a treat for a human too!

This is a great sentiment and something for your guests to remember your party by.

8. Ensure your pet is covered for anything that might go wrong

One of the best gifts you can give your pet is insuring his or her health with pet insurance. Pet insurance will give you both the piece of mind you need to enjoy and live life to the fullest.

A trip to the vet can set you back anywhere between R500 to R10 000 or more if surgery is required.

Sadly, things do go wrong and we can’t predict when they do but we can be prepared.

Have fun celebrating your precious pooch and make him feel special on his special day with these pawfect party hacks and ideas.

Yours in paws,
