10 Tips For Celebrating The Holidays With Your Dog


Although many dogs have a hard time during the holidays, the festive season doesn’t have to be stressful for your furry friend. It can be quite the contrary.

Here are some fun ways to include your pooch in all the fun:

  1. Include your dog in the family holiday picture or holiday card.
  2. Your family and friends will be thrilled to receive a holiday card with your dog’s paw stamp.
  3. If they are not too timid, you might take them Christmas caroling. Who knows, maybe your dog even becomes an online sensation.
  4. Your dog likes wearing costumes? Dress them as Santa or Santa’s little helper.
  5. Hang a stocking for your dog and fill it with toys or treats. Your pooch will be over the moon.
  6. Give them a present and allow them to open it on their own. Don’t use holiday decorations because your pooch might swallow it.
  7. Prepare your dog’s favorite food and make sure to reward them with some delicious treats.
  8. Let them mingle with your guests for a while, but ask your friends and family not to feed the dog. Also, make sure that your friends know the most important doggy rules in your household.
  9. If you’re traveling somewhere during the holidays, take your dog with you.
  10. Spend as much time with your pup as you possibly can. Play with them, take them for long walks and cuddle with them. After all, time spent with their humans is the best gift for any dog.
