1) Start planning the day ahead of time! Make sure you have plenty of time to get things ready for the party. You want to select the location, whether that's your house, the local dog park, a family's backyard, etc. And you want to check with family and friends to see if the date is convenient for them as well.

Make sure to send out the invitations in advance!

3) You want to make sure you have a place set up for photo opportunities. It's a good idea to order a backdrop and floor drop to take photos of your pup eating it's cake. It not only makes a great photo, but it will help keep the mess on the backdrop, which is washable.

A good size for a backdrop and a floor drop is probably going to be 4' x 4' each.

4) Make some foam board cut-outs of your pup and your pup's guests. Guests will not only love seeing their dogs cardboard cut outs, but they will be happy to know that they get to take them home!

You can have the designs cut out of foam board, gatorboard, Corplast and even PVC.
