The holiday season is here! We are now in the festive time of the year, the period which many people regard as the most wonderful moments every single year. Cheery celebrations, family get-togethers and cozy nights in and wild nights out are all an important part of each of our lives during this time. The holidays are a time to spend with family, including our pets. Besides giving them perfectly wrapped Christmas gifts, many pet lovers are also looking for fun ways to incorporate the furry family members into holiday activities or even planning activities specifically tailored for them.
Walk in the Woods
Beautiful winter, beautiful snowflakes, the deep forest is full of infinite fun and Merry Christmas.You love holiday decorating and DIY and your dog loves a walk in the woods.A few tips to make a walk even more fun. Get the best of both by rounding up your pup and your pruners, then head out to forage for branches, boughs, cones and berries to make a fresh Christmas wreath. Note: Not all wild plants are OK for pups to eat. Be sure to monitor your dog while you are out foraging in the woods or city. Many cats are just fine on a leash; if yours is, don't leave them at home.
Take holiday pictures
Christmas pictures are an opportunity to show off your family’s personality during the holidays. Whether you are sharing on social media or taking photos for a holiday card, your pets will be a perfect addition to capture and spread the season's festivities. You can dress up your pets in a colorful Christmas costume or set a holiday decor at home and start taking pictures of them. If you still have no idea how to start, opt for visiting a photo studio.If your cat / dog doesn't like Christmas dress up clothes, please don't impose it on.
Buy Them Gifts
Gifts shouldn’t just be for humans! Pets are part of your family too so treat them to a special gift you know they will just love. Get a stocking or wrap up a few presents and place them under the tree for you to open with them on Christmas morning. If you prefer to pay attention to the health of your pet, a drinking fountain can better guarantee the quality of your pet's drinking water next year.Gift ideas could be toys, treats or snacks or even a new outfit! If you want to, you can splurge on something big that your pet needs or ‘wants’, like a new kennel or comfortable bed or dog vest to welcome the New Year in.
See Christmas Lights
Pile your pets into the car, turn up the holiday music, and hit the road, as across the country, neighborhoods, parks and other public places are installing spectacular holiday light shows, where you can wander or drive through an expertly illuminated winter wonderland. We have pet-friendly destinations in all states that are sure to have those tails thumping.
Make tasty holiday treats
While you are baking Christmas cookies, make some for your pets. If you search carefully online, there are plenty of healthy treat recipes you can make for your pets so they can enjoy with you and the rest of the family at the Christmas parties. However, always keep all the toxic ingredients that can cause a medical emergency in mind. Don’t forget to make extra and share with your dog’s and cat’s friends too!
