You would do anything for your dog—make sure he gets a nice haircut, keep him fed with his favorite treats—so why not celebrate his birthday with the same enthusiasm?

Use these ideas to ensure your dog and guests have a howling good time!

No one leaves with empty paws.
Put together a doggie bag with treats and other party favors for your furry guests and their parents to take home with them as a souvenir.

Keep them full.
No party, for a dog or human, is complete without treats, and dogs will love these cupcakes full of all of their favorite flavors!

Let them play.
The pups are definitely going to want plenty of toys to keep them entertained. Leave a few chew toys, ropes, and other playthings around that your human guests can use to play with their pups, too.

Decorate with doggie balloons.
For an additional element of fun, turn normal balloons into a mirror image of your pet by cutting dog-ears out of construction paper and taping them to the sides. Then, draw your pet’s face onto the front and place them throughout the party.

Make sure they’re hydrated.
Running around with other pups and their parents can take a lot out of a dog. Spread out a number of water bowls through the party, and leave larger jugs around for guests to help refill when needed.
