A few tips to remember when hosting a dog birthday party:
- Keep dogs apart when they are eating. Food can be a source for competition between animals and can bring out the aggressive nature of those who have protective tendencies.
- At eating time, it might be a good idea to ask dog owners to put leashes on their pets. That gives them control in case a dog does try to get food-aggressive.
- Make sure there are plenty of water bowls and keep them filled.
- Mark off a designated area for a doggie rest room and provide plenty of poop bags or a poop scoop and trash can.
