When a dog has a birthday, it’s like celebrating 7 years in one. For that reason, you have to throw a party and pull out all the stops. Your dog may be like a member of your family—one that won’t be around as long. If you’ve never thrown a birthday party for a canine, you may wonder how to prepare. Part of getting ready is having all the essential dog party supplies. For knowing which supplies to purchase, follow this guide.

Invitations

Most birthday parties involve invitations, so a dog’s party is no different. Many pet owners prefer to go to the store or order readymade invitations that have a dog theme on them. To make things a little more special, feel free to customize your invitations. You can go to a print shop and inform the attendants what you want on the invitation and how you want it designed. You can create your own invitation on the computer and have them print copies for you. They should have envelopes at the shop to go with the size of your cards. If you really want to go the extra mile, you can create individually made invitations and send them out to guests.

Favors

Since some of your guests will be canine friends, be sure that you provide party favors for them. These favors don’t have to be extravagant. You can buy doggie treats or even create a batch to give out to the dogs. Put these snacks in cellophane bags and tie them up with bows for a decorative element. You can also win over your guests with chew toys and bones. They’ll have something to nibble on during the party and something to play with afterwards. These favors will please your people guests as well as their pets.

Decorations

Last on your list of dog party supplies is decorations. Every party needs at least a little bit of decoration. Consider putting up standard decorations such as posters and streamers. Put in some doggie elements such as paw prints and fire hydrants. Balloons are an added plus. Pick out balloons with dog prints on them or create balloons tied into dogs.
