Holiday traditions aren’t just for people. Dogs love being part of the family fun. If you’re a pet parent, you already know how much love and comfort your pup brings. Christmas is a great time to start some holiday traditions you and your dog will enjoy for years to come. If you’re not sure how to start, we have some ideas your dog will love that will be easy for you to do every Christmas season!
During this festive season, you probably get lots of Christmas cards. Why not start a new tradition with Christmas cards you can send out to family and friends? You know your pet is adorable, so what better way to show off all the cuteness than a holiday card to send Christmas cheer?
Christmas is a time of giving and we all know there are shelters everywhere with pets that don’t have homes for the holidays. This is an incredible time to donate some of your pet’s gently loved toys, beds, and blankets to your local shelter. There’s always a need and your dog can even take a ride with you to drop off the goodies.
Holiday movie marathons can be so much fun and they make fun traditions to look forward to every Christmas. If it’s cold outside, throw on some warm pajamas, grab your dog’s favorite blanket, and head to the couch for movie night! Pick out your Christmas favorites and enjoy an evening watching some classics with your furry friend. Don’t forget the snacks!
You may have some memorable ornaments you’ve collected over the years. A fun Christmas tradition with your dog is creating special ornaments together each year. You’ll enjoy hanging them on the tree during the holidays, and it’ll be tons of fun making them, too. Some of the best ornaments are pictures of your dog through the years and their unique paw prints!
Taking kids to see Santa can be an incredible experience, but it can also be great fun for your pup. Many veterinarian clinics and local shelters have dog-friendly Santa meetings each year. These events usually include professional photographers who can take the perfect holiday photo of your pup. Santa pictures make festive Christmas cards, too. All dogs deserve to meet the big guy himself, so start taking your pet to see Santa and bring home pictures you can treasure forever. Don’t forget the perfect holiday attire like a Christmas Cheer Dog Collar & Lead!
Christmas is a time when we love traditions. We watch the same holiday movies and enjoy the delicious holiday foods we’ve loved forever. If you’re a pet parent, you can easily incorporate some fun traditions with your dog that will build stronger bonds and give your pet a sense of belonging.
For us dog lovers, our pets are part of the family. It comes as no surprise that we want to include them in our Christmas traditions. Try some of these ideas or start something new that you and your dog can enjoy together during the holiday season.
