puppy parties

We believe that any animal lover, from 1 to 100, should be able to be surrounded by “puppies” on their special day! Secondhand Hounds will bring at least 3 puppies or dogs to your business, home, venue, convention, or virtually for 90 minutes of play!

We are currently booking parties a minimum of 8 weeks in advance!

 

With limited exceptions, all in person puppy parties must take place within 30 miles of our Minnetonka office.

 

Thank you for your support in providing puppy socialization, spreading the word about animal rescue and helping us raise money for our program!

 

There are three types of Puppy Parties available, please read below for more info on each of the options. Restrictions may apply. Outdoor parties can only take place when temperatures are between 50-85 degrees. 

Guidelines

  • With limited exceptions, all in person puppy parties must take place within 30 miles of our Minnetonka office. If you live outside of Minnesota, please consider hosting a Virtual Puppy Party!

  • Puppy Parties should be booked at least 6 weeks in advance.

  • Parties must take place in a dog-free location within 30 miles of our Minnetonka (5959 Baker Road) office; however further distances will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

  • Public parks are NOT permitted for risk of disease for young puppies.

  • Puppy party duration is 90 minutes and includes a minimum of 3 puppies or dogs, although virtual puppy parties are 60 minutes.

  • For personal parties, all attendees must be at least 10 years of age. If children under age 10 are present at a non-birthday party event, they must be seated and in the presence of a guardian or parent.

  • Puppies & dogs may not be adoptable (i.e. pending adoption, no longer accepting applications, etc.)

  • All parties are subject to approval based on the health and safety needs of the puppies & dogs, including but not limited to the party environment and age of guests.

  • Outdoor parties must be between 50-85 degrees depending on the age and breed of puppies. In case of inclement weather, we will reschedule!
