Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. If you are like me, I have decorations all around the house but the Christmas tree get
the most attention from my dogs. Here are few safety tips if you have a real Christmas tree: Pine tar is toxic. Commercial tree
preservatives can contain harmful chemicals. Consider adding sugar water instead. Place delicate and breakable
ornaments out of reach. The best solution is to train him to stay away from the tree. Tell him “no” in a firm voice.
Remember that poinsettias, holly berries and mistletoe are all toxic. Finally, secure all of those extension cords so that
they don’t become chew toys for your dog. If your dog seems distressed and you suspect he has gotten into something,
call your vet immediately. 76% of people include their pets in their celebrations which makes the special occasions even
more “special”. Here’s some great gift ides for your dog. Every dog loves a long lasting chews like elk and water buffalo
antlers. Or a guaranteed indestructible toy by West Paw. All dogs love to have their own bed. Molly Mutt duvets have a
variety of fabrics to choose from and are machine washable. Finally, keep your dog and floor clean with Soggy Doggy doormats
and Shammies. You can find all of these great gifts at Greatpup.com . Show him how much you love him this holiday season.
