Dog Parade Activity

Gather together some friends and host a dog parade filled with your pooches through the neighborhood.

What You'll Need:

  • Friends with dogs and leashes
  • Accessories
  • Portable tape or CD player
  • Camera

How to Host a Puppy Parade:

Step 1: Round up all your friends with dogs and plot out the parade. Keep in mind some of these important questions: Whose dogs get along with other dogs? Whose dogs are better on their own? Which dogs are big? Which dogs are extra-small?

Step 2: Pick a theme such as "Puppy Love" or "Man's Best Friend" and design silly, inexpensive dog accessories -- red construction paper hearts gently taped to fur, poster boards hanging from the necks of each puppy's owner.

Step 3: March to one of your favorite doggone songs -- You Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog, or How Much is that Doggie in the Window?

Step 4: Be sure someone's parent is on hand to take plenty of pictures. This will be a dog day afternoon to remember.
