If you’re anything like me, your pet is a huge part of your family. From celebrating birthday parties to including them on dinner plans, your furry friend is just as important as any human. This time of year is no exception.
Here are all the ways you can get festive with your pal.
Get their photo taken with Santa at Crocker Park. Bring your furry friend to meet Mr. Claus himself on Sunday, December 3 or Sunday, December 10 from 6-8p. Learn more here. There are also several other locations around town that will allow you to bring your four-legged family members to meet Santa. Find them here!
Ugly sweaters aren’t just for humans. Many stores now have pet-clothing departments nearly as big as the ones for humans. Okay, maybe not THAT big but pretty darn close. If your pets don’t mind getting dolled up, find them the perfect holiday gear to help them get as festive as you. If they’re not a fan of sweaters, find a collar with a bell or bow. Just don’t force them to do something they’re not comfortable with.
Bring them as your shopping buddy. Some stores like Marshall’s and Target allow you to bring your dogs with you as you shop. Be sure to call each location before bringing them and don’t forget their leash, some garbage bags (just in case!) and a comfy pillow to put in the cart. However, just as cars can get too hot in summer, freezing cold temps are just as dangerous for your dog. Leaving the car running involves can be risky too (carbon monoxide), so make sure your shopping trip is kept to only dog-friendly stores.
Make a paw-print ornament. All you need is baking soda, cornstarch, water and their cute little paws. Really, it’s that easy!
Give them their very own stocking. And stuff it with all their favorite treats!
