Tips for the festive season with your dog or cat
You celebrate the festive season with your family. And that includes your pet! These tips help you celebrate in a pet-proof way with the whole family.
Pet proof decorations
Decorating your house with a cat or dog can be quite a challenge. Your pet is extremely inquisitive about anything new in the home and will be keen to sniff, play and knock them over. The following tips will ensure a safe Christmas tree.
Choose an artificial tree
A real tree loses its needles, which can be dangerous if swallowed.
Leave the tree for a while before you decorate it
Pets are sometimes like children: after a while, the novelty wears off and they find something else to play with.
Prevent your pet from getting close to the tree
Cats and dogs don't like aluminium foil. This glittery material doesn't feel nice on paws and makes a strange noise. Wrap aluminium foil around the base of the tree and part of the trunk too. Or you can surround the tree with a small barrier.
Decorate above pet level
When decorating, hang any dangerous and breakable ornaments high up, so that your pet can't reach them. Anything that fits into their mouth can be dangerous for your pet. And watch out for strings and hooks.
Be careful with lights and Christmas garlands
Those pretty strings of lights and sparkly garlands look very festive, but your pet will also find them extremely interesting and is likely to chew them or play with them.
Fun Christmas gifts for your pet
Your furry friend also deserves a gift at Christmas. A new bed perhaps? And new toys are always welcome, of course. By regularly swapping around their toys, they stay 'new' for your pet. There are fun puzzles for hiding treats or biscuits.
A delicious Christmas meal for your pet
Christmas dinner is obviously a special time when we all enjoy gorgeous food. It's tempting to give your pet something nice from your own dinner, but it's better to choose a nice treat that is really intended for your pet. With our tasty dog snacks and delicious dog meals, you can serve your dog or cat an impressive three-course dinner. In fact, we even have a special Christmas range! As a starter, serve our delicious sushi snacks or antipasti with different flavoured grillers. For the main course, a steamed meal, served with sliced steak fillet, and a delicious chew stick to finish!
For our cat friends, you can start the Christmas meal with a tasty delicup bonbon filled with delicious fish, followed by a steamed meal decorated with our snacks. To finish, a tasty delistick and your cat will be in heaven!
We wish you and your pet(s) happy holidays!
