Stress free celebrations 

  • Stick to your dog’s usual routine to avoid disruption and help them relax
  • Bored dogs can be naughty, so make time for playing and walkies
  • With more people in the house, your VIP may feel overwhelmed. Give them a safe space with blankets and toys

Tree-related tips 

  • Keep string lights out of reach to prevent your pet from chewing them or getting tangled up
  • Vacuum regularly to make sure your pet doesn’t eat any pine needles

Food to watch out for 

  • Chocolate is poisonous to dogs. Steer clear of chocolate tree decorations and don’t leave any parcels containing sweet treats under the tree
  • Don’t let your pet eat cooked turkey or chicken bones – they splinter easily, potentially causing your pet serious problems.

Poisonous plants 

  • Poinsettias, mistletoe, holly, amaryllis,fernsand pine sap are all toxic to dogs, so give these plants a miss. 

And now all that’s left to do is to have a happy Christmas with your pet!
