1. Pick a Great Location
Just like any other party, a dog party should take place at a great location. Your own house or apartment is always an option, but consider some of your dog’s other favorite spots. If you have a local dog park or a favorite trail that your pooch loves to explore, those could also be great options.

2. Serve Dog-Approved Treats
Your happy birthday dog deserves only the best at his or her party, and that includes edible treats. While you probably keep a regular stock of dog treats at home, this is an occasion to go above and beyond.
