HOW TO KEEP YOUR PETS STRESS-FREE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
The gift that keeps on giving: a happy & stress-free pet. Think of all the sights, sounds, guests visiting, paper unwrapping, etc. This is a big change of pace and daily routine. Aside from the holiday chew toys, there a several ways to help keep our pup calm, cool, and collected this time of year.
Your fur buddy may become curious about all of these flashy decorations hanging up around the house. These can pose a danger to your best friend, from wires running along the walls to stockings near the fireplace and yard decorations. Instead of spending the holiday season with eyes in the back of your head or at the vet, you may want to move the embellishments to a safe area high up or in a secure place that your pet will not be able to reach.
If your pet isn't used to having many people over, filling the place up with guests for Christmas can make both dogs and cats irritable, stressed, or even violent. They'll feel like their personal space; their castle/kingdom is being invaded. You'll want to give your furry friends extra love and care at times like these, making sure they have plenty of personal space and a designated room to play around in until your guests have gone home.
Holiday seasons are hectic, so it’s easy to forget to take your dog for walks as often. Just taking a bit of time outdoors during the holiday can do wonders for your dog’s emotional state, relieving stress and giving them some fresh air. There are all sorts of health benefits to dog walking that you might not think about when you are exhausted from holiday preparations, but you need to be mindful of your pet’s needs all year long.
