Christmas, the best time of the year. Most people are excited about this season, and most likely the excitement has also caught with your dog as well. For his loyalty throughout the year, reward the dog with some fun during this special holiday. Your days might be filled with cooking and shopping for other family members , but make sure you squeeze in some time and include your fur baby in all the fun.
In the middle of all the excitement, spare a few moments and give your dog a hug and some cuddle time. He is after all the one who is ever present even when all the relatives go back to their lives. Don’t neglect him during this season when everyone needs is to spend quality time with their loved ones. And you are his loved one.
The Christmas lights and decorations on the streets are truly magical and a sight to behold and your dog is sure to enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas cheer. If you normally take your walks away from all the activity, change your route, especially on Christmas eve and walk on streets that are well-lit with Christmas lights. Just remember to both stay warm with sweaters and boots appropriate for both of you.
If there is a treat shop in your area you can take your dog along with you for shopping. He just might see something he likes and choose it himself by barking or scratching it. Also remember to buy him treats from the pet shop so as the rest of the family is enjoying treats such as cake that he can’t indulge in, he can also have his treats but in moderation.
Before Christmas, ask around for places that will be holding fun activities for dogs and dog owners. Dog shelters mostly have some fun lined up so that’s a good place to start looking. This means the dog can have fun with his kind and maybe even make new friends.
On Christmas morning, watch and have fun at how your dog looks at his gifts with glee as you give them to him. Take a lot of photos for posterity, and remember to include your dog in all family photos. You might just capture a moment that will serve to cheer you up in future when Christmas has come and gone.
