Dog Birthday Party Ideas?

My dog's 2nd birthday is coming up fast, and we're going to through a party for him and all of his puppy friends. I'm just looking for ideas for the party. Anything helps, I'd love a recipe for a dog safe cake, but I also need ideas for activities, party favors, things to have on hand just in case, etc.

He is a chihuahua, but there will be dogs of all sizes, including huskies, pit bulls, other chihuahuas, little terriers… So, any activities should be easy for any dog to do.

Pet Birthday Party Ideas


If the festivities are for Fido or Fluffy, draw paw prints leading to your door with sidewalk chalk. Then cut pet-appropriate shapes out of poster board (bones or fire hydrants for dogs, fish or mouse shapes for cats, etc.) and hang them from the ceiling or from trees if you're having the party outside.

And don't forget to decorate the pets themselves. If your pup digs dress-up, go ahead and put on the dog with a party hat or even a tuxedo shirt or tutu. If not, give man's best friend girl's best friend, courtesy of a collar studded with diamonds (okay, rhinestones). If you're celebrating a feline, stick to the fancy collars (leopard print, perhaps?), since most kitties don't care for fashion shows.


If you're throwing a pooch party, by all means, invite your pet's canine pals as well as their owners. Just keep the guest list small and the party time to two hours so the dogs don't get too stressed with too many animals around for too long. Plus, you need to know that all the guests play well with your pet as well as other dogs, so save introducing your Rex to your new buddy's Spot for another outing. Should you invite compadres without canines? Only if they're rabid dog lovers who absolutely adore your pet.

Hold the party in your fenced-in backyard or at a nearby dog park for less muss, less fuss, but be sure to indicate an alternate date or location in case of bad weather. And keep lots of pooch poop bags on hand for any presents your pals' pets may leave behind.

If you're celebrating your kitty, limit the guests to just your family — cats prefer to keep to their own turf. Likewise if the party's for your iguana, hamster, cockatoo, clownfish or tree frog. While you and your immediate relatives are no doubt devoted to your animal pal, your human pals won't likely be as psyched about partying with your pet.


No matter what kind of pet you have, build in time for playtime. Get dogs' tails wagging with fetch or tug-of-war. If your party's in the dog days of summer, fill a kiddie pool with water and let the canine guests go for a dip. Let Kitty chase a piece of yarn or a flashlight beam in a dark room for feline fun (just expect a catnap for both of you afterward).

For a dog party, have a pet parade, particularly if the canine guests came in costume. You might also hold a talent show where old dogs show off their new tricks. If there will be kids at your dog's party, paint their faces to look like a puppy's.

If kids are attending, have them woof, meow or otherwise "sing" "Happy Birthday" to your pet in his or her own language. At parties just for your pet and your family, take time to present your pet's presents and play with them with him or her.


Keep your top dog (or cat) top of mind when planning your menu. For a pooch party, make puppy chow (or, as Chex calls them, Muddy Buddies), the snack food that looks like Purina but tastes a lot better, and serve it in small dog bowls personalized with each pup's name in paint pen so their owners can take them home later. Add hot dogs with all the fixings and a bone-shaped birthday cake and you're set for human food.

For your canine guests, offer dog biscuits and other treats from the pet store or a pet bakery. Just make sure to keep the pooch food on a separate table from the people food, since some doggie delicacies can be easily confused with human ones.

Kitty parties call for fish — fish flakes for the guest of honor and filets for the humans. You might also set out bowls of Swedish fish and Kit Kats for your people and catnip for your pet. For a purrfect kitty birthday "cake," give your cat a can-shaped helping of Fancy Feast with optional mayonnaise frosting.


For a pup party, offer people water, a Salty Dog or a Red Dog or Southpaw Light brew, making sure to stick a bottle in a doggy bag for a little hair of the dog the next day. Give the Rovers Bowser Beer, a nonalcoholic, noncarbonated beer for dogs made with malt barley and beef broth (no, we're not kidding).

For a cat party, whip up a punch bowl of Tom and Jerry, and serve water or milk flavored with chocolate malt powder or vanilla syrup. Just save the milk for the humans, not your feline, since many adult kitties are actually lactose intolerant.

As a final flourish to truly pamper your dog or cat — it is their birthday, after all — pour a Bark Vineyards' varietal (a nonalcoholic "fine wine for the canine and feline" made with meat juices) over their food. Cheers!

Pet and Owner costume ideas?

Seeing if anyone has some cute ideas for Halloween costumes for me and my puppy!

Posted by Sydni

Dog and Owner Costumes 1 Santa Claus and Reindeer: What can be more fun than dressing up for the wrong holiday? Skip the Halloween Aisle at the Hobby store and go right to the Christmas Aisle. Get yourself a Santa hat and a reindeer headband for your dog. You can add more items to the costume if you wish, but with just the hats, your neighbors will get the idea.

Dog and Owner Costumes 2 Super heroes: Dress up as your favorite superhero, and get your dog a cape. You can make the cape yourself, or purchase one online.

Dog and Owner Costumes 3 Cowboy and Indian: Let your dog be the cowboy with a bandana around his neck and a little hat. For yourself, make an Indian headband and feather, and add fringes to an oversized tan t-shirt.

Dog and Owner Costumes 4 Is your dog your baby? Put a bonnet on head and push him in a carriage. Your can wear a normal outfit or an exaggerated mommy outfit.

Dog and Owner Costumes 5 Angel and devil: you can purchase a halo and wings for your dog and horns and a pitchfork for yourself, or vice versa. You can also both wear the same costume if you wish.

Dog and Owner Costumes 6 Men and Black: You can purchase Men in Black costume for your dog online for only $20.00. It is worn on the dog's front legs and goes around his neck. From the front view, it looks just like a suit. Wear a matching black suit and sunglasses.

Dog and Owner Costumes 7 Pig and Farmer: You can dress your dog up as pig using a costume you can find online for $20.00 or less. Using a farmer hat and overalls, fashion a coordinating costume for yourself.

*Note: If you plan to take your doge Trick or Treating, you need to make sure that your dog does well in crowds, and that an adult will accompany him as all of the activity around you may require a strong hand. In addition, you do not want your child to take the dog to someone's door who may have a dog on the other side.

Mexican Fiesta, pinata, tacos, salsa, posters of Mexico, Mariachi music.

Pizza party, where everyone helps make pizzas, board games, Twister, Pin the Tail on Donkey.

Blast from the Past, 50's sock hop, where every one dresses from 50's ponytails, rolled up jeans, poodle skirts, thick white socks to dance in. Play that era music, and jitterbug, stroll, and the like. Food could be hot dogs, cocoa, hamburgers and chips. Cut out cardboard jukeboxes/soda fountains, 57 Chevys, and paint for decorations.

Eighties Bash, BIG HAIR, lots of makeup, Tom Cruise look for guys, Disco balls. Subs, finger foods. Flashing lights, cocktail signs etc. Trivial Pursuit.

Princess type party, with formal dress for guests, floor length dresses, suits/tuxes for guys. Cake and punch, streamers, twinkle Xmas lights behind evergreen branches, and in jars/punch bowls.

Charity party, where everyone donates food to be distributed to food bank. A project can be done, either picking up trash, walking animals at shelter, visiting with elderly, helping with children at a school, hot dogs, and cokes, no decorations needed much here.

A potluck dinner, where each guest will contribute something to eat, or drink, and you supply cake/punch. Play board games, watch a movie, or dance.

Round Robin dinner, or what is now called Progressive party, where one person provides snacks, another main course, another dessert, go from each house to visit, eat, and move on.

Skating party, if you live where ice skate outdoors, bundle up and build fire, have thermoses of hot cocoa, and go back to house for chili.

Hayride/sleigh ride, depending on area, either pull with horses, or tractor. Hamburgers/soup, cake.

Come as you are party, everyone must come as they were dressed when opened invitation. Cake punch.

Don;t forget you can always ask people or if you dont want people to know just your friends to bring food :)

hope that helped :)
