When I learned Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® would be introducing some new treats for dogs, I got so excited. If you’re a regular reader of About a Mom you know that I’ve been feeding my pets Nutrish dog food for quite some time now. The quality is second-to-none and my pets really enjoy it, even Winston who is 10 now and becoming more finicky. Both Winston and Fionna LOVE treats. Maybe a little too much. When our new Nutrish Treats for Dogs arrived, I decided a celebration was in order. I have some super fun dog party ideas to share with you today, including a couple of printables you may use for your own celebration. Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post. All opinions are my own.
Dog Party Ideas & Printables
From party favors to treats this dog party is very simple to pull off, especially if you use the provided frisbee and doggy bag printables.
Fill an apothecary jar with inexpensive tennis balls for an instant party favor. Target has these jars in-store usually, and they are fairly inexpensive. I have yet to meet a dog who doesn’t love playing with tennis balls.
Paw-ty Time Frisbees!
Frisbees are another fan favorite. They are easily personalized with a printable.
To make, simply download and print this frisbee printable. You can print onto sticker paper or adhere to the frisbee using tape, glue or putty.
Any party worth throwing must have some seriously good party eats. The new Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® treats are made with simple, wholesome ingredients. Dogs everywhere crave the meaty deliciousness in these Nutrish treats. My Winston sure does.
These treats are made with real U.S. farm-raised beef or chicken which is always the #1 ingredient. No artificial flavors, meat by-products, corn or wheat are used in the making of Nutrish treats. They are also safely cooked in the USA too which is really important to me.
The new Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® treats are available in 5 varieties:
Savory Roasters™ Roasted Chicken Recipe
Meatloaf Morsels™ Homestyle Beef Recipe
Burger Bites Beef with Bison Burger Recipe
Pawsta™ Beef Stuffed Riggies Recipe
Deli Cuts™ Savory Pepperoni Recipe
Winston paw-sitively loves all 5 of these recipes from Rachael Ray Nutrish. He seriously loses his mind when I pull out a bag of these, especially the Deli Cuts and the Burger Bites. I wanted so badly to get some adorable pictures of him drooling over these treats, but as cute as he is, Winston isn’t very well behaved. Totally my fault of course for spoiling him too much and not training enough.
This is as good as it gets.
On party day, place an assortment of dog treats into bowls or other small containers that your guests can easily get to. Just be sure to push them far enough back onto the table, in case you have an overly hungry 4-legged guest. It is always nice to have plenty of treats for your friends to take home. You can stock up on Rachael Ray Nutrish treats for dogs where you shop for your family’s groceries.
For your party I recommend prepping some doggy bags ahead of time, so that guests can bring some treats home.
How to Make Doggy Bags
Doggy Bag Supplies:
brown paper bags

This weekend Mom and my sweet little girl dog, Fiona, are coming down from Georgia. The dogs haven’t seen each other in months. What a party we are going to have! Winston and I have an extra special doggy bag set aside for Fiona that she is sure to LOVE.
Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Treats are intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only. Please watch your dog to ensure Nutrish treats are thoroughly chewed before swallowing. Break into small pieces for smaller dogs.
I hope you enjoyed all of these dog party ideas!
