Doggo Party: 3 Ways to Make Fido’s Birthday a Blast

Puppy Birthday You know you’d do just about anything for your furry babies, even to set up a grand birthday party.

Don’t worry, wanting to throw a birthday bash for your pup doesn’t make you a crazy dog person. As a matter of fact, a National Pet Owner survey involving 1,019 pet owners, revealed that 50% of the respondents go to great lengths to celebrate their pet’s special day.

Many people treat their dogs the way they’d treat their children, and when it comes to your kids, you only want the best. Here are four ways you can make your furry baby’s party a blast:

Mini Pup Cakes

What’s a birthday without a cake? Whip a healthy pup cake for your “baby” and its furry guests using dog-friendly recipes you can find online. You can get creative with the cake, say, by tying together some dog treats with an edible rope. If you happen to enjoy baking, it’s also a good idea to make some mini cakes for human guests and prepare them in fun party cupcake wrappers that match the overall theme.

Snoopy Says

If you remember playing Simon Says as a kid, this doggy adaptation of the game follows the same rules. You can make the tasks more challenging until you have a winner. Snoopy Says doesn’t only make a fun party game for both pup and “parent,” but it’s also a good way to train Fido.

Puppy Photo Booth

The last photo you took with your phone’s cam is probably that of your furry baby, so why not set up a photo booth to let your guests capture precious moments with their pups? Setting a photo booth also gives you the perfect excuse to dress up your pooch in cute costumes. You may include photo frames as party favors so your guests can easily put up their photos on display.

A pooch birthday party can get loads of fun for both the dogs and owners, but to keep the ball rolling, anticipate that disagreements between pups can and do happen. By making sure to keep an eye on the dogs’ behavior around food and toys, your dog is likely to have a safe and fun “barkday” party.

For Your Ice Only: The Importance of a Portable Ice Maker

Ice Maker in Australia Funny how things could start to unravel when you’re pressed for time. Take for instance ice. As soon as your guests in your pool party realise you’ve run out of it, it’s highly likely they’d have second thoughts about taking the next round of booze – and find somewhere else to hang out.

Had you the services of an ice maker, you’d save yourself the hassle of such embarrassing situations.

Ice All You Want…

While your refrigerator often comes with its own set of ice maker (usually on top of it), its main job is to serve only the needs of your household. Under normal circumstances, it plays a central role in keeping your food well-preserved for consumption, such as meats and veggies, GMR Supplies explains.

But in the ice-making department, your dependable ref would fall short when your need for ice increases. Making ice via convection, the ice maker on a refrigerator could produce ice in about 1.5 hours. However, a portable ice maker machine needs just 15 minutes to produce ice – or less. This is because ice makers make use of conduction in its ice-making process.

A home-use portable ice maker can produce 28-50 pounds of ice in a day, churning in 36-48 cubes per hour. In effect, you’ve got yourself a cooler-full of ice, more than enough to spark a party.

… And Then Some

Today, with millions shipped per year, refrigerators would still outnumber ice makers in the American household. But you’d certainly be putting a huge burden on your fridge if you just rely on it for ice when you’re holding a house party.

Moreover, ice from ice makers usually comes in bullet shapes – perfect for instant consumption. Because of this form, these ice cubes don’t get stuck with each other facilitating easy-scooping – unlike ice from your household refrigerator

As you may have guessed by now, an ice maker would be a great buddy when camping. Many have even brought it along while enjoying boating – telling you this machine’s here for keeps.
