How to Throw an Epic Dog Birthday Party

So your dogs birthday is coming and you have been throwing around the idea of having a proper birthday party for him.

  How to Throw an Epic Dog Birthday Party You're not sure where to start, who to invite, or what activities you could possibly do. Time to put that creativity to the test!

Today, I am going to share how to throw an epic dog birthday party!

  • Who to invite? There are a couple different things you could do here. Do you have friends with dogs? If so, invite them, and have a visit with your friends while the dogs enjoy the party! If you don't know many people with dogs, do you visit a local dog park? Ask around! You might be surprised with how many people would be anxious to attend a dog party! If all else fails, post online!! Send out a public invite to your local friends on social media and see what you can come up with!
  • No birthday is complete without cake! But what sort of cake would you have for a dog party? Check out some recipes via google, trust me... you will find LOADS!
  • Snacks! For summer birthday parties, see my previous post for yummy (super easy to make) summer fun dog treats! Otherwise, raw baby carrots are always a hit in my house, as well as bananas! Not all dogs like fruit and veggies though, so you might want to think about other snacks. Head out to your local pet shop and see what they have!
  • You will need some activities as well. If you have a fenced in yard, bring the pooches outside with a handful of toys!
  • Another fun dog activity for a party would be hide and sniff! Again, a fenced in yard will be your pet friend when dealing with multiple dogs at a party - hide some yummy treats around your yard, make some places harder to find than others, and let the dogs do the rest!
  • Scavenger hunt! If you have a bit of property this is perfect. Otherwise, find a local dog-friendly trail and set up a small scavenger hunt for the owners and dogs. There should be hints along the way, yummy treats as rewards, and lots of walking to tire out those pups!
  • Dog paw painting! Set up a finger (paw) painting session! Some paper, some pet safe non toxic paint, dip the paws and away they go!
  • Fashion show! Set up an outdoor fashion show for dogs! Have some fun things such as tiaras, a few feathery boas, and a judge! Have the owners walk the runway with their pup all dressed up, and the winner will get a prize bag!
  • Speaking of prize bags... why not have some pup grab bags for all to leave the party with?! Put small items such as poop bags, treats or a small toy in each bag.
You are now on your way to an epic doggie birthday party! Take these tips, and get creative with some of your own! Most importantly, have fun, and make sure the dogs do too! FUN FACT: According to a National Pet Owner Survey of 1,019 pet owners, 50% actually celebrate their pet's birthday, while 79% give their pets holiday or birthday presents. Leave us a comment and tell us how you celebrate your pets birthday! Dog Birthday Party and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

EXCELLENT SEAT COVER

We liked the first cover so much that a few days later we purchased a second one. The cover installs very, very easily, fits and covers the rear seat and the back of the front seats of our Subaru Tribeca perfectly, has flaps that cover the door-side edges of the rear seat, and stays perfectly in place. Spilled or tracked water beads up on the material and can be easily wiped off. At first our dog did tend to slide just a little on the new cover, but he soon learned to stand, sit, and lay just as well as he did before on the uncovered seat. The hammock portion seems like it might provide some little bit of protection in a sudden stop (our guy will chew apart any "doggie seat belt" type of restraint in very short order - so that option is out of the question for us). As to keeping him out of the car front-area - well, our long-legged Standard Poodle has no problem in still looking closely out the front windshield by putting his front feet on the center console - straddling the hammock - with no problem whatsoever. But we did discover that having the hammock in place does allow us to safely keep his water bottle and dish, his leash, and an old towel on the floor under the hammock - where he can no longer get at them (especially the leash and towel) to chew on them. All in all, an excellent seat cover.

My furbabies don't like leather seats!!!! But they love this seat cover!!!

Very hard to find a split bench seat cover at a reasonable price, this one fit the bill. Easy to install, very durable and looks to be easy to clean. Wanted something that would protect the leather seats and was pet friendly (hate it when the material of regular seat covers snags toenails and collars). I don't think I will have to buy another for many years!!!

great cover

This is actually a replacement for my original 4 knines cover which was 4 years old. I used it daily (bringing my pup to work with me) and washed it weekly, so the backing finally started to flake apart and come off. This newer version is easier to put over the headrests, great improvement in the strap and closures. Also the best improvement is the side flaps, the old cover didn't have these. These flaps help to catch the dirt from dogs feet when they are jumping up into the car, instead of it going on the side of the seat.

Split Rear Dog Seat Cover - Fitted - No Hammock

I had ordered this item from an on-line site and was extremely disappointed when I received the wrong item. I was impressed with the quality of the seat cover and decided to contact 4Knines directly. I placed my order with Maggie and received the Split Rear Dog Seat Cover within three days. The seat cover fits nicely in my new Honda CR-V and as stated by 4Knines, is very easy to install and remove. My 8-month old labradoodle Brodie likes the comfort, and friends agree with him. Great quality item, reasonably priced, and outstanding customer service. Thanks 4Knines.
