Not Just #Puppy Love: #Dog Parties for All Occasions (Guest Blog)

As we get ready to leave our home, they look at us with their big eyes and wait patiently for us to return. Whether we were gone for 5 minutes to the mailbox or for 9 hours at work, we come home to the same excitement – Tail wagging and the clippity sound of their paws as they prance around waiting for ear rubs. Now if this type of joy doesn’t deserve a party, I simply don’t know what does! offers dog party themes for all occasions to help you honor your furbaby with the celebration they can really bark about.

Dog parties can be held for any occasion, whether it is celebrating a new addition to the family with a puppy shower, welcoming a pooch into their forever-home with an adoption shower, honoring a pup who has been a member of the family with a bruffday party or hosting a unique corporate event with a dog party picnic.

Types of Puppy Parties #PuppyShower #DogBirthdayParty #PoochPawty

1. Puppy Showers

Everyone wants to go to a puppy shower! Nothing brings more giggles than puppy kisses with little wet noses and the sweet puppy breath that follows. You can introduce your new furbaby to your friends and family with a custom puppy shower from Create unique puppy party invitations with your event details, then go crazy planning a perfectly coordinated puppy shower.

2. Adoption Shower

You have found the perfect pooch for you and your family; and after the adoption papers are signed, you are ready to welcome him into his new forever home. Once the dust settles and he is comfortable in his new space, it is definitely time to introduce him to the rest of your world. Host an adoption shower for everyone who has been waiting oh-so patiently to meet the newest member of the family. You can also celebrate the anniversary of a dog coming into your life with an dog adoption anniversary party.

3. Birthday Party

Bruffday parties are exceptionally special since they honor your furbaby with a dog birthday party – complete with treats, toys and custom dog birthday party hats. Start with a yummy dog-friendly cake, then take your pick from a variety of custom dog birthday decorations to really get everyone ready to pawty. Your pup has been a loyal companion since he trotted into your life and you can bet he will enjoy this celebration as much as you do!

4. Company Events

Another great way to celebrate our love of dogs is to incorporate dog parties into other events. Corporate events, such as summer parties, are even more fun when you can show off your furry friend to coworkers. Our pups are natural ice breakers and will get a crowd mingling in record time. Dog party games will get everyone participating your corporate event – no one can resist a game of Luck Dog Musical Chairs!

 In full disclosure: I was NOT compensated for featuring “When Pooch Comes To Shove” on Dakota’s blog. I actually met Lindsey in the BlogPaws Community and was totally smitten with what she does, and her website, and asked if she would be interested in appearing on our blog as a guest blogger. At the time, I was planning a little doggie pawty for Dakota and a few of his pals for a Nutrish blog post which will appear on Monday, December 30th. I told her I wished I had met her BEFORE I had already made purchases for Dakota’s party, but I am DEFINITELY going to use her website in the future!



  1. This is so cute! What an awesome idea to have a shower for a new dog or puppy.

    That’s pretty cool stuff. We have small get togethers with a friend or two on occasion, but just the three of us is a party waiting to happen. Mom really wanted to send out announcements and do up the new puppy thing when she got another puppy, but Bailie was not really planned until about a week before she showed up and then we didn’t know she would be the one, so no puppy party. Once she arrived, things were far too busy to plan anything. Mom will bookmark this though, for future reference.
