The holidays are magical. But unfortunately, many of the things that bring you joy can be dangerous for your dog. Threats for puppies include special foods, decorations like Christmas trees, celebrations with family and friends, and travel.
With planning, you can celebrate and take precautions to keep your dog safe.
Christmas trees: Decorations can be dangerous for puppies. Threats include trees, poinsettias, wreaths, and more. Puppies will chew on ornaments, eat tinsel and gnaw on power cords.
Don’t give dogs as gifts: Introducing a new, young pup on Christmas Day is too overwhelming and stressful for everyone, especially the pet.
Ensure good holiday behavior: Use training to keep your dog on his best behavior when you host parties or have guests stay at your home.
Holiday food: Turn your holiday leftovers into pet food.
