Dog Party Ideas for our Happy Starts Here Party

The blog has gone to the dogs, well maybe just this post for now. Thanks to ALPO for supplying us with a fun party pack to get our #HappyStartsHere dog party ideas in motion. All the opinions expressed are 100% my own. While we love having people parties around here, Chloe decided it was time to entertain some friends for a dog food testing, even if it was not her dog birthday party.  The fun part was getting the adults to start thinking dog!

ALPO’s new campaign, #HappyStartsHere is all about “If dogs could talk, what would they say?” ALPO was so gracious in their party box they sent, filled with plenty of wet dog food and tasty ALPO Snaps Snacks. Look at this great assortment we received in the mail.

We set up the party bags and filled them with ALPO free product coupons, ALPO dog Treats, and a KONG to name a few. There would be plenty of sampling going on at this party.


Since these dogs do not eat wet food I decided to convert a few of the wet dog food cans into frozen dog treats. So simple and they get the right ingredients just in smaller bite size portions. Simply scoop out food with a small ice cream scoop and freeze for a few hours. Store them in a Ziploc bag. A bowl full of dog goodness.


Now for the people fun. Each owner was given the task to “speak for their dog”. Each owner had to fill out their talk bubble with what would their dog say when tempted with an ALPO Snap treat. Here are a few of the doggie responses.

A few more, everyone looks happy to participate.

Of course Chloe is showing off her best training while she anxiously waits for her command to take a taste. What do you think she is saying here?
