Keep your Pup safe at Christmas

Pups first Christmas

Share the joy

Who says Santa’s nice list is just for humans? Get your furry friend involved in the festivities with puppy presents such as Christmas-themed squeakers and plush toys (who can resist these lovable squeaky sprouts!)

You can also involve them in the Christmas countdown with an advent calendar with a great tasting meaty treat or carob flavoured treat behind each door.

The night before Christmas

Tradition dictates that we leave out milk and cookies for Santa, but that’s not to say you can’t prepare a Christmas Eve treat for your puppy too. Maybe even a Christmas Eve box?

Think doggy pyjamas, Christmas cookies made especially for dogs, or even a new bed to make sure they get a great sleep ahead of Santa’s arrival.

Season’s groomings

In the same way that humans get their hair done ahead of the big day, why not treat your puppy to a grooming session in the run-up to Christmas?

Festive food

Chocolate is toxic for dogs. A puppy-friendly alternative is a carob-based dog treat such as chocolate buttons or chocolate Santas.

You can also include your puppy in the Christmas dinner celebrations with a nutritious, dog-friendly meaty treat ranging from duck treats and turkey bacon bites to pork chipolatas to a doggy christmas dinner.

‘Tis the season for selfies

Whether it’s to put on a Christmas card to send to friends or to take pride of place as the wallpaper on your phone, a festive photo of your puppy’s first Christmas is something to treasure forever.

Simply preparing for the photoshoot can be full of memorable moments, such as picking out the perfect Christmas dog jumper and setting the scene by hanging a puppy stocking stuffed with dog-friendly treats on the mantelpiece.

Christmas nap time

With so much excitement on offer, don’t be surprised if your puppy is ready for an afternoon nap by the time the Kings speech starts!

To help your puppy get some peace on earth, make sure there’s a quiet area for them to get some alone time. You can also provide some extra warmth with a soft and cosy memory foam mattress or heated dog bed.
