Otis here. Have you adopted a new best friend? Has your two-legged pal welcomed a new four-legged bundle of joy?
Celebrate this new friend with a puppy shower, because why should babies have all the fun? You can have an event in your home, yard or online!
Welcome Your Guests
Your guest list can include pet parents and their puppers. (Make sure all guests are very social, just to put the new baby dog at ease.) Limit the list to a few friends so the baby isn’t overwhelmed.
A puppy shower is the perfect opportunity to socialize your new doggo. All of your guests are likely members of the new social circle. Shower games can include fetch, chase and learning new tricks.
Showers often have gifts. Set up a wish list of toys for your new pup. Puppy chew toys and cuddle buddies are great gifts for the young pup. (Check out our Puppy Toys Collection for gift ideas!) Your newly-adopted adult dog might enjoy a wider variety of toys.
Keep your shower to about an hour or ninety minutes. Little puppies spend a lot of time sleeping. Everyone will want a nap after partying. Make sure your guests know a puppy party is about the length of an obedience class.
Until next time--
