Celebrate the Holidays with Your Pets this Year!
How to Celebrate the Holidays with Your Pet
Our pets are a part of the family too! With the holidays just around the corner, we want you to keep your pets in mind. We have some fun-filled ideas on how to celebrate the holidays with your pets this year!
Bake holiday treats - Don’t forget about baking goods for your pets too! Here’s some ideas on dog-friendly treats to make this holiday season. Your pets are going to love them!
Take them to the snow! - This can be a fun activity to bond with your pet. Be sure to keep their paws protected from the snow by having them wear booties. Throw on a sweater or towel if they get too cold, and try to keep them busy and running around to maintain their body temperatures.
Bring them to a dog event - Celebrate the holidays with other pups at local dog events or meet ups. This will be a great way for them to socialize with other dogs.
Take holiday photos! - They want to be a part of the Christmas photos as well. Your pets will complete the family portraits! Dress them up in their ugly sweaters or reindeer coats. Check your local PetSmart or PetCo for holiday events to take photos with Santa Paws! Once you have the pictures ready, you can mail them to loved ones to spread some holiday cheer.
Stuff their stockings - You can’t forget about Rocky’s stocking! Hang it up on the fireplace and stuff it with new toys, treats, catnip or bones.
Adopt a new friend. - There’s no better gift than bringing home a newly adopted cat or dog for your kids this Christmas. Swing by your local animal shelter or humane society, who knows who you will fall in love with! If you can’t decide, read our blog posts on why cats make the perfect companions and reasons why you should adopt. Before you adopt, be sure to understand the responsibilities of having a new family at home. New pets at home are a lot of work!
Bring them with you on vacation - Pets are such great additions to road trips and family vacations. Don’t forget to search for pet-friendly restaurants and hotels before arriving to your destination.
Don’t leave them behind. - If you can’t bring them on vacation with you, be sure to find a pet sitter who you trust while you are away. Never leave your pets at home unattended for a long period of time.
Happy Howl-idays! We hope that everyone enjoys their holiday season this year.
