“Pets, like their owners, tend to expand a little over the Christmas period.” – Frances Wright
“Those Whos are hard to frazzle, Max. But, we did our worst, and that’s all that matters,” said the Grinch. Even in all of his Grinchyness, he could not have stole Christmas without the help of his loyal dog, Max. Christmas is a special time of year to bring everyone together. Our fur babies are no exception. While they do not understand the true meaning of Christmas, they can still partake in the family fun and sentaments. After all, if you do open stockings and presents, they will probably be watching the festivities. Why not let them partake in the fun? How excited your dog(s) will be if they sniff out a special toy or bone under the tree just for them!
Stockings for your Dog
Pick a stocking out just for your pooch. Hang it on the mantel with the rest of the family’s stockings. Your pup will get much joy being included in on the fun.
10 Stocking Stuffers for your Dog
Look for toys and treats your furry friend already enjoys. If your dog likes to fetch look for stocking stuffers such as tennis balls, frisbees, or throw sticks. If your dog likes to chew look for antler ears, raw hides, or bones. Use caution when purchasing treats, raw hides, and toys. Go with reputable companies and look for manufacturing in the United States. While it is not an end all be all, US companies have to adhere to certain safety standards.

Dogs are such loyal companions and bring us so much joy at the everyday. They are already part of the family. Get your dog involved in the family festivities by getting a matching outfit for Christmas or to enjoy for the month of December. If you host an ugly sweater party, don’t leave your dog out! People will get a hoot out your loyal companions involvement. If your dog isn’t keen on accessories, get your pooch a special seasonal item, such as a christmas dog collar, or blanket to snuggle in.
