How to Throw a Dog Pajama Party
Dog sleepovers can be a fun bonding time for dogs and pet parents alike. Bedtime stories and the soothing sounds of serenading songs are two elements to consider when planning a pooch pajama party. Here is the scoop for sleepover success.
Think BYOB, as in bring your own bed. A dog is more apt to sleep when away from home if it has its own bed, blanket or cozy throw. A dog that prefers a kennel should be allowed to sleep in one. Familiarity breeds comfort.
Sociability is key when bringing a group of dogs together for any reason. Dogs can be territorial, especially when it comes to their sleeping spots. Those that are unfamiliar with each other should be acclimated pre-party to prevent problems.
Let sleeping dogs lie, but let the pack play before expecting any catnaps. Rules of a dog park should apply: practice voice control, take caution with toys, be aware of any treats being handed out, and ensure that any children invited are aware of how to approach and behave around guests (of human and dog variety).
When sending invitations, ask dog parents to snap a photo of their own pajamas and bring them to the party. Put all photos on display. The guest who correctly matches the most pictures with their owners wins a prize for his or her dog.
When it comes to dog attire, never stress a dog by making it wear clothing if it's not used to it. Pajamas are one option, but for bigger dogs or hard-to-find sizing, consider a bandana bone-anza: The most creative doggie bandana wins a pooch prize.
Easy access to grass is essential. Plan the pajama party for a room or section of the house where dogs can be taken out quickly and easily.
Using these suggestions, you'll have a fun, memorable pajama party event.
