Holiday tips for your dog

Holidays are great, but sometimes they can be stressful for people. And, of course, that stress can be passed on to our pets. We can also get distracted with everything that is going on, and neglect our pups a bit. It’s important to remember that dogs don’t understand why things are different and you need to be sensitive to that – especially if it’s one of their first holidays with you. If anything, we might need to do more walking and training to keep them happy and calm.


So, no matter how busy you get, make sure you still make time to exercise your pup. Also, keep in mind training and manners when you have guests. It’s a great time to practice friendly greetings for delivery people as well as friends and family. Have your dog sit to get petted for everyone’s safety.
