Who loves howliday fun? Looking for pet-friendly holiday ideas? We've got you covered.

Shortcut to our Dog Holiday and Special Occasion Posts

Ready to start celebrating? You can jump straight into our holiday dog posts if you'd like, or use the internal search (bottom right of the sidebar in web/tablet view) to sniff out something specific.

DIY dog birthday parties have their own page to help you navigate our party archives and related content, so if you just want to party, you can explore from there, if you prefer. Most of our party content is birthday oriented, but can be readily adapted for other special occasions. It's a dog's life indeed!   

Exploring the Holiday Archives

Our blog includes post labels that can help you navigate and discover related post topics, including large categories such as major holidays, like all of our dog-friendly Christmas posts, as well as smaller and more specific labels.  These will automatically sort by date, with the most recent posts first. Labels are located on the footer of each post. 

📝 Behind the scenes, labels also help to generate the "You might also enjoy these posts:"  suggestions that you'll see at the very bottom of our blog posts, just above the footer.  They feature a circular thumbnail photo and post title for related posts that our readers might also like to explore.

Holidays on the Blog | Popular DIY and Dog-Friendly Holiday Posts

Feeling festive? Here are some post previews from some of the main holidays on the blog; however, we love to celebrate other special events (and crazy days of the year) as well, so there are many other special holiday posts in our blog archives. If you're hunting for something specific, try the internal search (bottom right of the sidebar in web/tablet view).

Dalmatian DIY is New Zealand based and some occasions, like Mother's Day and Father's Day may not align with your home country so don't be surprised if posting dates seem a little strange sometimes.  Having grown up in Canada in a family with Irish roots, I still have a soft spot for occasions like St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving (not celebrated here), and Halloween (not traditionally celebrated, but growing in popularity here).   You'll see the occasional treat or DIY sneak in for other non-kiwi occasions as well.

🐾 We take requests for future posts, and have created dog-friendly holiday DIYs, recipes, freebies, and more (including for holidays and occasions we don't celebrate ourselves). We can't turn every special request into a scheduled post due to planning and other constraints, but will try to help with ideas where we can!
