Tips on how to care for you dog this Holiday Season.

*Sponsored by

I am such a Holiday lover and a dog fanatic.  But along the joy of the Holiday festivities I feel as a responsible dog owner I must touch on the topic of Holiday Safety tips for your dog.

As, if you dog is not safe and happy...the Merry will not be in your Christmas this year.

So I figured the best way to share some of my personal tips on how to care for your dog was to list them below.
1)  Make sure your Christmas tree is in a safe location (protected with a safety gate) or even anchored to something sturdy.  This will protect your dog from knocking it off and causing them injury or injury to someone else.

2)  The Holidays brings along many different types of gift wrap, strings, bows, ribbons and other beautiful decorations.  This eye catching decor can also get your dogs attention, which in turn if eaten can cause serious internal problems.  So keep en extra eye on your pet and make sure they stay safe.

3)  If you are celebrating the Holiday at your home a dog containment system can be very helpful.  That way you do not have to worry about your pet escaping from your yard, if your guest accidentally let your furry friend outside.  Just make sure you have your dog's collar receiver on.

4)  Speaking on Holiday guests....along with the guests comes many different types of food and desserts.  Make sure your company knows not to feed your dog as it could cause stomach upset and a huge mess.  And certain types of food can create medical problems.  So keep an eye out on your pooch and make sure you know what he is eating.

5)  Make sure you have a dog friendly area that you fury friend can retreat if the Holiday get to be too much.  As a person I can totally relate.  It is better to have this location pre-planned so if and when that time comes you are ready and so is your dog.  

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays with a safe and joyous dog this year.  I would love to hear if you have another other tips of tricks to make this time of the year successful for your pets.
