Celebrations don’t always need an occasion. Celebrating with your sniff-sniff buddy at home is anytime joy. Pull out your party shoes when your dog has turned a year older. As for the remaining days, here are some wacky ideas to get into a gala time with your canine special that works in favor of pet humanization trends.
The Growing Admiration of Dog Parties
‘Pets as a family’ is emerging as a natural expression of pet lovers who are increasingly treating pets as their children. The products meant for the pet owner are also fitting in the pet segment. Examples, chemotherapy, hip replacements, pet supplements like omega-3s, and luxury services like hotel rooms are common to humans and pets.
According to Pet Products & Services Market Report by Packaged Facts, a trusted market research body for pet products and services, more pet-owning households in the U.S. are contributing to the demand for pet-driven products. The well-being of pets and their longevity is influencing the consumer behavior of pet owners. This signals the growth in purchasing power of humans for their pets. Spending on pet luxury is a natural outcome in pet owners, a trend that is boosting social habits and interactions of pets.
1. Puppy Shower
A baby shower is to announce the pregnancy of a woman. But a puppy shower is a welcome party for the pup to celebrate its inclusion in the family. Do it with style and aplomb by throwing in a cocktail for your friends, neighbors, and social contacts. A party present for your four-pawed member from them will be an icing on the cake. Dress up your dog with add-ons like crown, bow tie, cap, and other frills in a riot of colors. Your dog has to look camera-friendly, so make the overall get-up of the dog Instagram-worthy. Put on your thinking cap to get your dog put up a pout that will make his canine friends feel jealous. Competition is good among dogs!
A birthday is a day of pampering. So, go that extra mile to make a date, month, year of your pug unique and memorable. Start with the birthday costume. There is a range of frocks and Dog Jackets to make them look just right for a magazine cover or a social post. Chalk out a list of their eatables. Their birthday treat has to exceed a simple dog biscuit, so move on to doggie delights like a meat pie, a bone-shaped birthday cake, fruit salad, and cocktails. Call for a musical band to sing your dog a birthday song.
Cuddle them so that they feel on top of the world. Sign up for a Dog’s Birthday club to make their date stay very much in your mind. Don’t forget to buy balloons and glitter for your dog’s party celebrations.
3. Best Obedient Animal
A dog is the most loyal animal. But is the male and female pup equally obedient? Licking you is all right. Is your pup disciplined in eating meals, going to bed at the right time, and potty habits? If yes, then show your appreciation by throwing a celebration party for your precious poodle. You could get him a doggy-sized tiara with ‘Royal & Pawsome’ written on it. Give human guests bone-shaped treats. Use carobs in place of chocolate for your Ms or Mr. Obedient Pet. They are safe substitutes for the chocolate and are suitable for dogs.
4. Canine Weddings
Pets tying the knot is an out-of-the-world experience to see and cherish. Now that the canine mister and miss are entering a new phase of their life, their wedding party should be dog-some. Put up welcome signs on their behalf at the venue, their face imprints on the coffee or cocktail mug, custom-printed popcorn bags with their photos, their cardboard cut-outs serving as face masks for the guests and on the wedding cake. Such ideas will get the attendees drooling in this good tail time.
A dog Halloween party is a big show. When you decide to throw a Halloween bash for your dog, make sure it is wide enough to accommodate all the dogs and their owners. Choose an outdoor area in summers and indoor for cold days. Have a skeleton dog welcome statue that will fit perfectly at your front door. Halloween-themed toys will be an entertaining activity for a group of pets.
6. National Dog Day
August 26 this year is National Dog Day. It naturally calls for a mini-celebration. Invite all your friends and their dogs, click their photos, host a pet playdate, bake a dog-friendly cake or treats, donate to a local animal shelter, let your four-legged friend unwrap a present, or take your dog for a swim or a car ride. Dogs love attention, so give them plenty of it on their day.
7. Dog Graduation Day
So, your pup has achieved intelligence by reading a book or two. Tell the world how proud you feel by throwing a graduation ceremony for your dog at a house party. Buy high-quality hats of the right fabric that are comfortable on your pet skin. It will make your dog feel super cute and knowledgeable. Get colored tassels and a suit on your dog to give him a feeling of graduation status. Do not forget to take a photo with your dog dressed in graduation attire. It will provide a sense of super confidence to the two of you.
Now, this is a celebration Santa-lovers look forward to every year. Get cute-looking Christmas reindeer antlers with fake flowers for your pop pup. Made of soft materials, they are comfortable for your dogs. If you want a high dose of adventure for your pet dog, get a dog face Christmas hanging decoration for your home entrance. Dress up usual Christmas items like cookies, jingle bells, trees in dog-shaped cut-outs so that your paw-some friend can relate to the year-end celebration enjoyably.
There can be so many reasons to throw a party for your dog. It is a lot like throwing one for your child. So, get going in buying the items – food, cake, party dress, games, and a pile of gifts for your dog to feel on cloud nine. Make sure your dog’s day turns out to be a success.
