Finally, winter is here, bringing with it all of its beauty and happiness. We humans do everything to celebrate this seasonal shift, from enjoying hot chocolate or tea to dressing in warm, cuddly coats and sweaters to munching on delicious winter snacks. Christmastime brings with it the pleasure of festivities. As the world is drenched in Christmas colors, our minds naturally go toward the important people in our lives, including our beloved dogs. As we embrace this new season, let’s remember to give our amazing friends more love and strengthen our bonds with them. There are many ways to make cherished experiences for our four-legged friends at this unique time of year, from delicious snacks to festive décor.
How to make your dogs’ Christmas extra special
Zigly’s Business Head, Sushen Roy, gave HT Lifestyle some creative ideas for giving your cherished pet a memorable Christmas.
1. Time to spoil your animal companion
Our dogs need to be pampered just as we humans do. These are some of the finest methods to prepare your pet for the holidays, from grooming them to swimming in a heated pool.
2. Pet holiday attire
There are many adorable holiday outfits that match our furry friends’ distinct personalities. There are several things to choose from, such as bow ties, caps, Christmas sweaters, and ribbons around their necks. Even matching costumes for you and your pet are available. Just make sure they can sit comfortably in it.
3. Establish a custom with your pet for the family.
This Christmas morning, get up early and prepare your pet’s favorite food or goodies. Alternatively, use your creative side to create unique handmade presents for your pet. Even better, you may volunteer and cheer up the kids at a local children’s hospital by bringing your pet along.
4. Prepare delectable meals and sweets.
Making a mess in the kitchen is a part of holiday fever! Making scrumptious, healthful meals for your pet is one way to show them how much you care. Cookies, cheese nibbles, and homemade treats are excellent choices to entice your dog or cat to drool.
5. Plan a Christmas picture session.
Get dressed up, enjoy Christmas with your pet, and have a picture session to remember the occasion forever. Here, inventiveness is not lacking in any way.
6. Animals in need, really a companion
You may set up blankets, beds, and coats for the homeless animals living on the streets. To assist the animals in need, you may even provide food donations to the shelters for animals.
7. Plan a pet game for the holidays.
Play games with a Christmas theme with your pet to have a fun-filled festive season! With pet-friendly choices like food puzzles or glittering new dog bones, you can keep them occupied, engage their minds, and help with training.
8. Adorn your dog’s room
Adorn your space with your pet’s favorite toys, snacks, and strategically placed holiday lights. Adding bedding with a Christmas motif can make the room seem much more festive.
9. Act as a secret Santa to your pet.
Playing a fun treasure hunt with your pet may be a fun pastime. Since Christmas is all about giving gifts, it’s the perfect time to spoil them with their favorite things, such as cuddly toys, cupcakes, and chicken snacks.
