Is it your pup’s birthday? Perhaps you’d like to celebrate another occasion - puppy Christmas or Halloween party anyone?! Whatever the occasion we have some great ideas for throwing the party of your puppy’s dreams. Puppy parties aren’t just a great way to have fun, but also offer a good way for your pup to socialise with other dogs.
Puppy Party Treats
First things first; food! A party is all about the food and the treats right?! We have a range of quality, tasty dog treats and cakes that will make your pup’s celebration feast the best ever. Choose from one of the delicious cakes from Barking Bakery, or why not treat your pup to a personalised cake from Arton & Co? That’s sure to make their day. We also have smaller bone shaped treats, bottles of canine-friendly ‘Pawsecco’, dog lollipops, Barking Bakery Pupcorn and donuts - what more could your canine guests ask for?!
Puppy Party Decorations
A party isn’t complete without party decorations and our canine themed decorations will add the perfect amount of sparkle and pizzazz to your celebrations. We have birthday themed packs or more general "Woof" celebration styles for other party occasions, so whatever the soiree is for, your venue will look positively .
Puppy Party Fashion
Last but certainly not least, your puppy needs to look the part! We have some fabulous dog party hats and bow ties to ensure your pup looks the part at their big event. Available in various colours, they will certainly stand out from the crowd in one of these sets.
If your dog prefers less sparkle, why not treat them to a collar and bow tie combo from Hiro & Wolf? Available in an array of striking designs, these will look lovely on outings as well as at parties.
Socialising Your Puppy
Socialising your puppy in the first few months is a really important part of their development and training. Your pup’s brain will grow up to 10 times from birth to 4 months old and introducing them to smells and other senses will help them learn what is safe and what’s not; and also who is part of the family. Some Vet’s and local dog training groups throw puppy parties (casual social gatherings rather then the celebratory kind!), which can be a great way for you to introduce your pup to other canine friends, especially if you don’t have any other dog owners in your friendship/family circle. These are often for pup’s between 3-12 weeks old and are a great way to initially teach your pup how to socialise. We’d suggest attending small gatherings like this first and then once your pup is comfortable around different people and animals and is well on their training journey, think about a celebratory party - Puppy’s first Birthday is the perfect occasion!
