Christmas is most fun when you have a precious doggo to share it with. I love shopping for Wynston during the holiday season because it’s a great excuse to buy him lots of extra special goodies! Forget the holiday present ideas for humans – this one’s for the dogs. Presenting the 2018 holiday gift guide for dogs.
Visits to sit on Santa’s lap are no longer only for human children. It’s just as common to take your dog to see Santa now since large retailers like PetSmart and Petco offer the opportunity. )Small pet stores and events in your area may also offer photos with Santa). Although Wynston isn’t a fan of “the big man,” I know how fun it can be to get that precious photo of your pup with him. It’s always best to be prepared for that special moment, so for you I have helpful tips for taking your dog to see Santa Claus.
I enjoy shopping for Wynston much more than shopping for humans. Do you share my sentiment? I have a stocking for Wynston that I love filling with goodies, and I also wrap presents for him. As a part of our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents series, I come to you with a post about some simple stocking stuffers for dogs! In a separate post I will give you other gift ideas for your dogs and cats that don’t necessarily fit in a stocking.
In a world of social media and a lack of true connection, I feel like people are losing sight of manners and proper etiquette. These are basic human concepts that I find to be extremely important, although it’s becoming a lost art. So in case you need a refresher (or know someone who does) for the holiday season, I present to you holiday etiquette for pet parents!
I think as pet parents we can all agree that safety is always top priority for our pets. Often when I think of Christmas and the holiday season, I rarely think of the multitude of risks that come along with it. We’re so caught up in a holly jolly Christmas, that we forget about the dangers it can pose. Sounds silly, right? Well, not for our fur babies. The fireplace, Christmas lights and tinsel can put us at the vet’s office too quickly, so it’s important that we’re mindful throughout the season. I’ve compiled a holiday pet safety guide to get you and your fur friends through Thanksgiving and Christmas without any emergencies. This blog post is the first of twelve in our 12 Days of Holiday Planning for Pet Parents.
