How to Include Your Pet in Holiday Celebrations
During the holiday season, we all want to be with our loved ones. For those of us who have pets, that includes our furry family members! There are plenty of fun and creative ways to incorporate your pet into your holiday festivities. Here are a few ideas for how you can include your pup in the fun this season.
Organize a Pet Photo Shoot
Pet photo shoots are becoming increasingly popular, especially around the holidays. If you’re feeling crafty, consider setting up a backdrop or other decorations so that you can take some adorable pictures of your pup to send out with your holiday cards. You can even buy festive doggy outfits or dress them up in seasonal accessories like scarves and hats!
Go on a Holiday Adventure
The weather might be getting colder, but don’t let that stop you from exploring the outdoors with your pup! Many parks will have Christmas lights on display during the holidays – why not take your pup for an evening stroll so they can enjoy them too? They may even appreciate it more than you do! If it’s too cold for an outdoor adventure, find an indoor pet-friendly activity like going to doggy daycare or attending an event at a local pet store.
Make Special Treats Together
Your pup won’t be able to enjoy all the delicious treats that come out around this time of year, but there are plenty of recipes available online specifically designed for dogs. Consider whipping up some homemade dog treats together - they'll love helping out in the kitchen (and eating their creations afterwards!). There are tons of recipes available online that use ingredients like peanut butter, oatmeal and pumpkin puree. Plus, it’ll make for a great bonding experience between you and your four-legged friend.
We love these baking mixes specifically designed for dogs (no sugar added!) with the added bonus of being human grade so you can snack along with your pup!
Pets truly make our lives brighter every day – why not add some extra joy to their lives during the holidays? Whether it’s dressing them up for a photo shoot or taking them on a special outing together, there are lots of fun ways to include your pet in holiday festivities this season. As long as safety is kept top-of-mind throughout each activity, they’re sure to have just as much fun as you do! Enjoy spending quality time with your furry family member this winter season!
