Puppy Parties Are the New Trend

These doggie themed parties are becoming increasingly popular for kids' birthdays and other special occasions.

Puppy parties are the latest trend in childrens event planning -- participating companies usually bring around ten puppies to your home and set up a petting zoo for guests. Some provide extras including dog toys and costumes.

Galaxy Entertainment is a Los Angeles children's entertainment company, and owner Brandon Jones says puppy parties are their most popular events. Packages range from $200-$500 and include a party full of small breed puppies such as Malteses and Yorkshire Terriers. The puppies are all around four-months-old, and their canine moms attend the parties to keep them comfortable.

Brandon says he has a partner who home-breeds and raises the puppies. The dogs are vaccinated, and they haven't had any issues with biting. Brandon doesn't use shelter dogs telling us, "You need to know the puppies are coming from a safe environment." He advises moms interested in hosting puppy parties to make sure to hire a company that knows the dogs' emotional histories.

Once the puppies from Galaxy Entertainment's parties are six-month-old, they are usually adopted by clients and party guests.

Yes, If I were looking to get a dog for our family. I think this is just a way for the company to make money by having the party then knowing the kids will fall in love with them, they end up selling the puppies to the people. Smart game they are playing! It’s a money maker..twice over!

$200-500? my purebred pug puppy cost around that amount. Maybe instead of buying a puppy one day a year for that amount why not just buy one, or borrow a freinds dog. Many people would love to have someone to play with and excercise their dogs while they are at work. This is just stupid

Comment #2 makes no sense to me. Comment #1 is the ignorant remark of someone with entirely too much time on their hands. The best idea is to do a bit or research before your bile betrays your inner poison.
