Dog party … spoil your pooch… it's not every day your best friend turns one, so why not celebrate with liver cupcakes, pupcorn and a game of paws the parcel
Our party service was set up in 2018 after catering a party for one of our client’s pooches, from there we have organised a doggy pool party, dog garden party, and dog-friendly Valentine’s Day party.
Our philosophy is that all pets matter, and as a business, we pride ourselves on promoting our duty of care to the pets and their owners alike. We are dog owners and animal lovers and our business offers a variety of events and workshops for our clientele.
The food that we provide is 100% safe and healthy and can be consumed both by owner and pet. We offer choices of vegan, vegetarian, or meat dishes.

We cater for up 10 guests and their owners, we advise that you make the right choice in terms of invitees to avoid any misbehaviour and ultimately the right choice for the safety of the dogs and people at the party.
Choosing a neutral, safe play area allows your dogs to run around and enjoy themselves freely. This will prevent territorial and protective behaviour over territory and toys.
Every party needs decorations, handcrafted or home-made decorations will get everyone in the party mood. Click here to view a range of personalised decorations.
No party is complete without delicious food, we offer small quantities of dog-friendly food to keep them healthy and ready to play.
We also offer catering for the human guests, please provide us with any dietary or allergy restrictions of your guests.
Make sure the fun continues even when the party has finished with party bags, fill it with anything from bandanas, special squeaky toys, to homemade healthy treats.
Get the party started in the right way by greeting your 4-legged friend outside in the neutral territory, giving them a quick greeting and a sniff. Once acquainted, you can walk them into the fenced area and release them. They’ll spend the first few moments marking and re-marking their territory, but this is only natural.
Make sure that you have a camera to hand to capture all the memories of the day.
In all the excitement, accidents are expected to happen. Make sure that you keep poo bags, cleaning spray, paper towels, and a first aid kit to hand.
Keeping everyone happy and entertained is important at any party, here are some ideas to help you and your pet bond and keep you both happy.
This traditional game has been given a twist to get your pooches involved, have owners and their dogs walk around in a circle to music until there are only two left.
Use frisbees or tennis balls to time who is the fastest eater.
Beat the heat and keep you and your pets comfortable, purchase a pool for your dogs to bathe in and a sprinkler for the fun factor.
A great party game will be to cut hot dogs into half or quarters, fill a bucket, and let them bob away.
Best Dressed Dog Contest
Dog and Owner Agility and Obedience Contest
We all had the joy of having playdates in our earlier years and our dogs deserve the same joy. Playdates kept our young, budding social lives exciting and were always something to look forward
We should consider doing the same for our dogs! As much as they adore us, they need their fair share of fellow canine interaction. Having your pup romp around with a dog you encounter on a walk is
great and always encouraged, but having a full playdate really benefits both you and your furry friend. Ideally, your dog and its playmate should have a solid amount of time for a playdate, they will be thrilled. Other dogs offer unparalleled energy that humans have a hard time maintaining. Therefore, letting dogs run wild for 40 minutes or so is really the best form of exercise for both parties.
There are many ways to get your dog involved and active. Bilbo’s offers dog parties, day care and social events, meetups, and more. This is a great resource for getting dogs some quality exercise with fellow canine friends!
