How to Throw a birthday Pawty
5 Keys To Throwing the Ultimate Birthday Pawty!
Dogs are like characters from a Disney movie. When in a crowd or on show, they display a slice of the good, bad and the naughty.
The key is to keep the peace.
When it comes to party guests, limit the introduction of too many new friends, but also ensure an inclusive vibe. It’s all the rage today.
From your beloved dog’s own besties, to the neighborhood riff-raff, opening the door to the poochiehood makes you look like a hero and in turn, makes your birthday baby look like the most popular kid on the block.
GUEST LIST TIP #1 = As dogs arrive, take the hellos and intros to the back yard!
GUEST LIST TIP #2 = Make sure every guest has a dog tag. This will help sniffin-tros and hellos.
Location is everything.
Don't want to deal with the clean up?
There are many other places you can have your pawty besides your home.
Local doggy parks can be a great place to throw your shin dig without being too overwhelming.
Or maybe you can even sell a friend into hosting your dogs big day. You can reward them with a gift.
And what better gift than a Jax & Bones toy, eco-friendly bed or any of our handcrafted products.
LOCATION TIP #1 = Make sure every parent knows they are responsible for any doggy accidents! Have you seen our P.U.P. - Pick Up Poop Waste Bag Dispensers?
LOCATION TIP #2 = Arrive early and allow your birthday dog to settle in.
If you left a gazillion vegan or meat burgers in the middle of a room, chances are every single dog would woof it all down!
Keep the people food well away.
Keep the dog grub you are serving up simple.
Don’t overthink it.
Don’t go too fancy just to impress.
Dogs love their favorite things, so the RSVP should also include a questionnaire about each guest's dietary requirements.
Add a special little desert treat so that you have that “blowing out the candles moment.”
THE GRUB TIP #1 = Keep it basic to accommodate all dog generation diets.
THE GRUB TIP #2 = Make sure everyone is also hydrated, including the human drinkers!
As talented as dogs are, they can’t take selfies or videos.
It’s up to you to capture this memorable event for family and friends.
Our dogs are our kids, and they deserve to have these special times chronicled as part of their dog-story.
Be sure to have a designated photographer and videographer (basically someone with a mobile phone) in a set area where dogs, humans and other beings can sit, stay and pose.
THE MEMORIES TIP #1 = Set-up a guest book. Get some safe dog ink. Have every guest leave their pawdagraph!
THE MEMORIES TIP #2 = Set-up an event #hashtag/#dogtag so when people post to social media, you can track it!
The wag bag
The dog’s version of a swag bag, the wag bag is a take-home guest gift.
It shows gratitude and recognizes all of the doggies for taking the time out of their busy day to have fun with you and your pooch.
It’s a little sniff of love that goes a long way.
A Jax & Bones birthday toy would fit perfectly into your wag bag. You can even include something for the parents.
A coupon or discount from Jax & Bones would be cool.
Just hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org when you are having your dog party!
THE WAG BAG TIP #1 = Include a cause message to help support animal charities. Meet our Rowdy Rescuers!
THE WAG BAG TIP #2 = Reach out to your local dog shop to see if they would provide any free swag!
