Dog Party Day

Did you know that June 21st is Dog Party Day? That’s one idea we can definitely get behind! While Fido loves his human pals, it is always good for him to spend time with other dogs. This is especially beneficial for puppies, as they need socialization. Why not host a puppy party? Read on as a local Folsom, CA vet offers some helpful tips on hosting a great dog party.

Guest List

Invite only friendly, well-behaved pups to your celebration. Make sure that all of Fido’s four-legged pals are fixed, vaccinated, and up-to-date on their parasite control products.


This is a perfect time to have a grill-out or potluck for your human pals. As for your canine guests, you’ll want to offer lots of yummy snacks. Regular dog treats are fine, but if you want to go all-out, why not make some homemade ones? You can make pupsicles by pouring sodium-free broth over dog biscuits, pieces of kibble, chew sticks, or cooked, shredded meat. Freeze them in waxed paper cups or cute bone molds. You’ll find lots more great recipes online.


Provide lots of fun toys for your four-legged pals. Dogs can get a bit territorial about playthings, so make sure that there is more than enough to go around. If you want to save money, you can go the DIY route here as well. Here’s one quick option: to turn an old tee shirt or towel into a rope toy, cut the material into thin strips. You’ll want to braid these together, and then braid the braids together. Then, tie the ends off with big knots. Voila! An automated ball-launcher is also bound to get tails wagging. (Note: these aren’t safe for big dogs, as tennis balls can be choking hazards for large breeds.)


If you have a pool, pay close attention to your furry guests, and make sure they are supervised at all times. Never leave dogs alone near a pool! You could also get a kiddie pool or a sprinkler, and let Fido and his buddies cool off that way.
