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!
Hosting overnight guests in your home can potentially be a stressful event for your dog, especially if they are visiting for a long period for time. Your dog is most likely used to a routine and schedule, and their rhythm is likely to be thrown off while company is in town. Consider using these tips to keep your dog comfortable when you have company staying at your home.
Summer tends to be the season of travel. Kids are off from school, many corporate industries slow down and the weather is nice in a majority of the country. As all of my vacations include Wynston, it’s becoming mainstream for families to include their dogs in travel plans. Summertime offers potential weather risks that may not exist other times of the year, such as overheating, monsoons or terrible humidity. Consider these summertime travel tips for pet parents if you’re hitting the road or skies with your pup this season.
The May Appreciate the Moments photo challenge is great for me because, well, I’m a dog MOM! This month I’m using our theme of “mother” to celebrate my relationship with Wynston. I think the photo I chose appropriately describes our bond.
