Life's a Puppy Party

Recipes, DIYs, and Activities for Celebrating the Seasons with Your Dog

About The Book

Make the most of every day with your dog using this fun collection of healthy recipes, easy DIYs, and Pinterest-worthy party plans that you and your pup can enjoy together.

Our dogs are more of a part of our lives than ever, but it’s still hard to find cute treats, toys, and accessories for them that you can make yourself.

When Heather Hunt brought home her dachshund, Dave, she scoured the internet for all the info she could find about being a great dog owner. And although she found plenty of factual guides to being a good pup parent, she was shocked that the fun and silly parts of owning a dog were completely missing—how to create a comfortable Halloween costume without buying a sewing machine, how to bake a nutritious barkday cake, or how to host a party for other pup friends.

Heather eventually launched as a place to share great pet products and simple, creative activities for modern dog parents.

In Life’s a Puppy Party, Heather has created a handbook for having fun with your dog. Grouped by season, it features easy, cost-efficient, Instagrammable, and vet-approved recipes, crafts, and no-sew costume ideas to make your pup a part of every type of celebration.

In this book, readers will learn how to:
-Bake an easy “pupcake”
-Upcycle a pair of old jeans into a cute bandana
-Throw a backyard puppy pool party
-Turn a dog hoodie into a dinosaur Halloween costume
-And make a dog toy advent calendar

This is a perfect gift for any dog parent looking for more ways to celebrate their pooch while giving us all something to smile about.

Life’s a Puppy Party provides instructions we never knew we needed…But that’s what makes this book so perfect. She’s not Martha effing Stewart. She’s a girl at home, during the pandemic, gluing cotton balls onto felt for her best friends — and having a darn good time.” -New York Times Book Review
