Every pet deserves to feel like part of the family during the Holiday Season. Whether it means purchasing a matching pajama set for your dog as well as your kids or making sure they have a stocking hanging from the fireplace too, you want to include them. How do you plan on treating your fur children this winter? Below we have included a few cute ideas that will guide you on the best tips and tricks for a low budget furtastic holiday season.
1. GET YOUR DOG IT'S OWN HOLIDAY OUTFIT!
Some dogs don't enjoy wearing cute outfits, sure. But they get cold and anxious when the weather is chilly and there are tons of new faces in the family room. Get your pup a new Christmas sweater or Turkey outfit so they can feel secure with the close comfort fit and also excited to show off their new jacket to their new friends.
Here are a few suggestions that they might like!
2. STOCKINGS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
Tis the Season! All the kids have stockings hung on the mantle but what about your fur baby. Your doggies and kitties sit and watch while everyone opens gifts but will be very excited when they get their gifts. We recommend hanging stockings with their names on them or a stocking that looks like a bone, your dogs and cats will love it.
Here are a few stocking stuffers that your cats will love!
3. COOKIE PLATE FILLED WITH PUP TREATS!
Santa loves to get cookies from the kids! How about leaving treats for Santa's pup, who rides with him the whole night delivering packages! Your fur pup will love them also. Your children will enjoy spending time baking the fun treats or putting the store bought items out on display and be excited to see them gobbled up in the morning. Buy or bake natural bone biscuits or kitty salmon bars yourself, your fur baby will thank you and the family will be surprised when they are all gone in the morning!
Here are a few toy suggestions for your pup:
4. SNUGGLE UP IN FRONT OF A FIRE AND MOVIE!
Build a comfortable bed in front of the fire while you and the family are watching your traditional holiday movie. Your kids, cats, and dogs, will enjoy the evening with great company and comfort to go around! Soft and cozy with your pet on Christmas Eve. They will love the warmth of the fire or just cuddling with you. Put in a Christmas movie or one about dogs and watch how happy they are, just to be with you.
Here are a few cozy things for your pet:
1. Cuddler Bed
2. Plush Mat
3. Cat Mat
5. BRING THEM WITH YOU TO SEE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!
There are many things you can do with your dog during the holidays. Take them for a walk to see the Christmas lights, just be sure to dress them warm if it's cold outside! Pet Shelters often organize holiday events for doggies during the holiday season. Why not bring your puppers on the journey to go help some other dogs in need. Be sure to spend time with them as they will feel left out if you're concentrating on everyone else.
6. TAKE PICTURES!
Be sure to make special Christmas memories! Take lots of pictures of your fur babies, if you can get them all together! Use them for Christmas Cards for your family & friends.
7. DON'T FORGET TO SET A SPECIAL PLATE OUT DURING THE HOLIDAY DINNERS!
Your kitten should not feel the need to jump on the table and ruin everyone's fancy holiday outfits. We wouldn't want your cat to knock down wine glasses on his or her way off the table after the screams begin. Set aside a special plate with natural ingredients that won't hurt their tummy but will make them feel like they are getting the good smelling food too!
Be Safe and Have Fun! Enjoy doing Holiday things with your family and fur babies. Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah!
