Throwing a party?Read on.
Anyone else thinks their dog turning one (or any age, for that matter) is a really big deal? Like, party worthy? Well, I certainly was excited and wanted to throw a party for her. Once my partner realised I was, in fact, serious, I began planning what I needed to throw a pretty neat shindig for my Miniature Schnauzer, Mavis. In my research, I found lots of venues require you to hire their space AND pay for their food. I didn’t really want to do this, as I wasn’t really sure if what I was paying was….er……justifiable. After planning and throwing my own party for Mavis, here are a few of the top tips which will hopefully mean your party is a raging success.

And what are the things to look out for?
