With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s easy to forget how all the excitement affects our furry friends. To help keep the season happy for you and your dog, here are a few tips.
Grade School Level – as usual, this is always a major factor in your dog’s level of success. Avoid environments that exceed your dog’s capabilities. With an abundance of food and aromas, guests coming to your house and presents under the tree, your dog may do best in its crate or tethered out of the way of too much excitement. Advocate for your dog and create an environment for them to put their best paw forward!
Carve out more than a slice of turkey: Try to keep up with your dog’s regular meal times and training routine during the holidays. Carving out even just a few minutes a day for training and spending time with your dog will prove to keep your dog on track and feeling like a happier holiday camper.
Every member of your family wants to feel the warm fuzzies of the holiday season. By creating an environment in which your dog can be safe and feel calm and content, you can all enjoy a peaceful and happy season.
