Top 5 Christmas Treats for Dogs
Here at Green Lane Farm we understand that your dog is one of the family and, as Christmas draws closer and you begin to think about gifts for friends and relatives, you will also be trying to find the perfect Christmas treat for your beloved pet.
So to make the process as simple as possible, and get one more thing ticked off your inevitably imposing list, our experts have compiled our favourite Christmas treat ideas for dogs. Whether you’re putting together an entire festive stocking or looking for a simple way to treat your dog this Christmas, there is guaranteed to be the perfect solution amongst our top 5…
1 – Tasty treats
All dogs love treats no matter what time of year it is – and Christmas is no exception! They are a great way to include your pet in the festivities and you can often buy seasonal treats that are made to look like well-known Christmas objects. You can even buy Christmas puddings for dogs made from their favourite meats and cereals.
If you fancy being particularly creative, you could even bake the treats yourselves, using Christmas cutters for the perfect finishing touch. This is a nice way to include the rest of the family too and is sure to get the Christmas spirit in full flow!
2 – Warm, seasonal clothing
Winter clothing can be a very practical present for your dog this Christmas, particularly if you choose a coat which is both warm and waterproof. However, Christmas is also the perfect time to have a bit of fun and give your dog a festive look.
Whether you opt for an entire outfit, a Christmas jumper or a simple accessory, there are a wealth of options available – all of which will ensure your dog is picture perfect this Christmas!
3 – Grooming supplies
Grooming supplies can make a fantastic Christmas present for your dog as they will come in handy all year round. Brushes, combs, shampoos and nail clippers are all great ideas and will help your dog look great and stay healthy.
If you’re feeling especially generous you could even arrange a trip to a professional groomer. Not only will it be a treat for your dog but it will also ensure they look their best throughout the entire festive season.
4 – Fun and festive toys
Toys are a great way to keep your dog (and the rest of the family) entertained over Christmas and will ensure your dog isn’t left out of the celebrations.
There are a huge range of dog toys available – from chew toys and squeaky bones to teddy bears and tug ropes – and most suppliers will sell festive toys in Christmas colours and themes.
5 – Long winter’s walk
One of the best treats you could give your dog is just a long winter’s walk. It costs nothing and will ensure your dog gets what it enjoys the most this Christmas – quality time with its owner. If you have the time, set aside a whole day when you can go for a long walk around the countryside and you could even bring the rest of the family along to make it extra special.
