Let’s face it, dogs are the original tail-gators. So it should be no surprise that they want in on your tailgating action. We’ve planned the perfect game day party that will get you and your dog barking for more than your favorite team.
It’s all about the Food
When throwing the best Super Bowl Party for family and friends, why not include your pets in the biggest sports game day of the year? Now is the time to prepare your menu and to get ready for the big game without leaving your pet fido feeling left out.
Let the dogs join in on the fun with these simple Super Bowl dog party planning tips:
It’s not a party without food! Treat dogs in your life to water flavored with beef or chicken broth, or for a special treat, you can buy “dog beer,” a non-alcoholic beer made just for dogs by Bowser Beer.
For treats, Lucy Postins, CEO of The Honest Kitchen, has come up with a pawsome football-shaped dog treat in honor of the day. Get the recipe>>
You can’t have a Super Bowl without a football! Get squeaky football toys for your guests as party favors. Planet Dog, Kong, and a host of other brands make cute rubber and plush footballs that your guests are sure to love.
No sporting event is complete without fan-fare! You can find collars, leashes, ID tags, even dog jerseys of NFL sports teams at many retailers and online. If you are crafty, you can also make your own using the teams’ colors and a little creativity. For example, buy dog tees in your teams favorite colors. Print out the team’s logos on transferrable paper and iron onto the dog shirt.
Entertain yourselves during halftime with some doggy games. Have a dog beer (or flavored water) tasting, a game of hide and seek with the football treats or toy, and a best dressed fan contest are just a few ideas.
Let The Games Begin!
