Woof, woof, woof Jingle bells
Woof, woof, woof jingle bells
Woof, woof, woooooof…woof woof jingle all the way……..
Want to make sure your pets keep singing Jingle Bells instead of the holiday’s blues? Some ideas to help follow:
Happy at home
On the road
At the kennel or with a pet sitter
It is always sad when you have to leave your pet behind when you go away for the holidays but this can be made easier by doing a dry run. In other words, make sure you have used the kennel before or ask the pet sitter that you found on www.SOSsitter.ca to come over for some bonding time before you go away.
Adding to the stable
If you are thinking about putting a new kitten or puppy under the tree for Christmas, think carefully. You do not want to add to the increase in pets that are given to shelters after the holidays because you and your family were not ready for the responsibility of a new pet.
Not only do you want to be sure not to forget your pet during the busy days of the holiday season, you want to keep an extra eye to watch for signs of stress. Excessive barking or pacing, changes in appetite and amount and type of engagement with the family are all signs of stress in our pets. Give your pet extra attention!
