Fun Doggy Games and Activities

Dog Pound - Buy a small plush dog for each guest. When they arrive let them pick one out, or have them draw numbers to see who gets which dog. You can make up a doggy adoption certificate to print from your computer. Makes a memorable kids birthday party favor!

Dog biscuit scavenger hunt - Write numbers on the bones before hiding, then the children will receive a prize that corresponds to the number on their bone. Cut-out paper bones can also be used. For an extra challenge have them search while on their hands and knees!

Pin the tail on the puppy

Give the Dog a Bone - Create a large cardboard cut-out of a dog's head with a hole for its mouth. Give the kids beanbags or actual dog bones and have them try to toss the bones into the dog's mouth.

Musical Dog Bone - Pass around a dog bone or stuffed puppy. When the music stops whoever is holding the bone is "in the doghouse" and out of the game. You could give each child a small baggie of dog bone candy while they sit out and watch the rest of the game.

Pass the Bone - Have everyone at the party divide into two groups. Get two decent sized rawhide bones. Have the players' line up in two straight rows. Give each player at the end of the rows one rawhide bone to place between their chin and their chest.

Have them pass the bone to the person next to them by only holding it between their chin and chest. The player receiving the bone can only receive it grabbing it under their chin. No touching with your hand. The first group to get the bone from one end of the line to the other are the winners!

Doggy Drink Race - What you'll need are two or three doggy dishes. Put Jell-O or any kind of drink in these doggy dishes and have the kids kneel beside the dishes with their hands behind their backs and see who finishes first the doggy drink. This is always a hilarious party game idea!

Doggie, Doggie where's Your Bone - For this party game idea, use a clean dog bone or a bone cut from white construction paper. Have all the kids sit in a circle and choose one kid to be the dog. The dog needs to sit in the middle and be blindfolded. A kid then slowly sneaks up and takes the bone. All the kids call out "Doggie, doggie, where's your bone? Someone stole it from your home!" The "dog" gets three guesses to find out who has the bone. If they guess right that new person becomes the dog.
