If you're looking to create a more upscale and formal pet event, consider throwing a yappy hour, a canine cocktail party for your friends and their pets. Get decked out in chic cocktail attire, or keep it casual while sipping on yummy beverages and tasting delicious treats. You can host a yappy hour at your home, a local dog park, or a social venue with pet-friendly policies. You may want to limit this one to dogs your pet already knows or to dogs that you know are well socialized.
Canine companions can socialize while their humans enjoy pet-themed cocktails such as meowtinis, vodka greyhounds, bark-a-ritas, poodle coladas, barky alexanders and meowhattans. Serve pet-themed snack such as cocktail wieners and bone-shaped cookies. Both humans and pets will lap up all of the energy and excitement of this pet-friendly event.
