What you'll need is cardboard boxes, cardboard tubes, a hula hoop, colored paint, paint brushes, scissors, colored pieces of card and glue or sticky tape. Then you are ready to start making the agility course.
To make 2 jumps, you'll need 4 cardboard boxes and 1 broom handle (cut in half) Make sure the cardboard boxes are the same height. Cut a hole in the side of each box (this is where your tube will slide in) and paint the boxes to look like bricks. Try adding red stripes to the broom handle and hang some strips of paper from the bar, to stop the guests from 'cheating' and just running underneath. Once everything is dry, insert the broom handle into the holes in each box and your jumps are now ready for action!
To make a "daredevil" hoop of fire, you'll need a hoop, some textas and coloured pieces of card. Cut out flame shapes from yellow and orange card stock and attach them to your hoop with glue or sticky tape. Better still, cut some orange paper into 2" strips and fix them at the top of the hoop so they hang down about halfway.
To make a tunnel, you'll need cardboard boxes. Open out a cardboard box, so you can see all the way through it and paint to look like a brick tunnel or paint green to look like a hill.
Now it's dog party games time, so let's get ready to set up your course. You could have a jump, then a tunnel, followed by another jump and then the hoop of fire, for the grand finale at your special dog birthday party!
A) Make bone-shaped sandwiches by using a cookie cutter; B) Make mini hot-dog rolls; C) Make a separate, bone-shaped birthday cake for the two-legged guests to eat.
3) Determine whether small children should be invited. Since small children often do not know how to act around dogs, more strict supervision may be needed.
4) Make sure you always have a doggie first-aid kit on hand. You may also want to obtain the names and numbers of everyone's veterinarians. Additionally, be sure to stock up on lots of clean-up materials (baggies, cleaning spray, paper towels, etc.).
5) Make sure you have PLENTY of water available throughout the party area. You can provide separate, personalized bowls or communal bowls stationed in various areas.
6) Provide people food in ingredients that are also safe for dogs.
