Dog Theme Birthday Party Ideas

Maybe you're thinking that our dog theme birthday party is for kids. Well, those of you with pets know that a dog party knows no age! 

The ultimate dog theme party is one where the guests can bring their dogs along, of course! Your fenced in backyard would be perfect but a dog park would work too.

This way both your two-legged and four-legged friends get to socialize at the same time. Plus you won't feel guilty about another day out without the dog. 

Dog bowls make great serving bowls for all of the people food (new bowls please). Large bowls for chips, small ones for salsa, and so on. Use different colors and sizes to add to the fun. Use a marker to write cute names on them ... Spike's Spinach Dip or Lassie's Lasagna.

For decorations, place a gigantic cardboard fire hydrant at the entrance to the bathroom and a doghouse cardboard cutout surrounding the front door (if the party's at your house).

For party favor ideas consider:

  • bandanas for the dogs with the guest of honor's name and date
  • a charm for each guest with his/her own dog's name on it
  • doggie treats, Frisbees, tennis balls, or a dog bowl (write the dog's name on it with a paint pen), all for the four-legged attendees
  • a tiny dog choke collar which can be used as a bracelet with an initial charm dangling from it, for your two-legged guests
