Dogs and holiday stress

Tuesday, November 27, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy


Holiday parties and all of those strange visitors can be awfully stressful to the family dog. Here are four ways to help your dogs with stress.

  • Reduce temptation – whatever comes into the house whether it’s food or gifts, keep it safely out of reach of your dogs teeth.
  • Make sure that you enforce a “please don’t feed the dog” rule ¬†for all of your visitors. This even includes close relatives like grandma.
  • Don’t neglect your pets daily exercise, not matter how busy you get. Remember your dog is relaxed when he’s tired.
  • Try to manage your own stress or at least don’t let it show.

The holidays make us all crazy so give your dog a hug, it could help!

Remember, your pets count!
