  • Take your dog to a kennel for the night. You can devote your time to your daughter and her party and your puppy can get some social time in with other dogs.

  • Put the dog away; in a crate, outside or in a room where no one goes. You can also try teaching the dog soe manners beforehand.

  • I would relax a little and take a deep breath. If she really wants a sleep over and you are okay with that then I would let her invite 3 friends over, that way there are 4 girls. You could let them have a little make over party were they do each others hair and nails.

    Then you could decorate cup cakes, instead of having cake.

    Next I would let them pick out a movie and have pop corn, or something like that, for them. let them watch the movie and tell them after it is over lights out. They may talk and what not, I think that is fine.

    I would also make sure the parents know what time in the morning the kids should be picked up. Set the rules about the dog right off the bat and if you have to you may need to keep her in a separate room for a little while.

    Good Luck
