The holidays are a time for friends and family to gather together and celebrate, but what do you do if you have a pet? Fortunately, there are many ways to make Christmas an enjoyable experience for your beloved animal friend while keeping them safe. Here’s how to make your Christmas celebration pet friendly.
Make sure your home is safe for pets.
- Make sure your home is pet friendly
- Clean up any messes made by your pet. Keep pet toys and treats out of reach of your pets.
- Don’t leave food bowls unsupervised, especially in the kitchen, where guests or other animals could knock them over.
- Keep the Christmas tree as far away from beds and couches as possible so that it’s not a temptation to jump on them while visiting with family members who aren’t familiar with your house rules about keeping furniture off limits to pets (i.e., keep them off!).
Set aside a no-pet room
Setting aside a room for your pet where they won’t be bothered by the hustle and bustle of the holiday is essential. An excellent place to start is with a gate that separates your pet from the rest of the house. It will allow you to keep an eye on them while also giving them some quiet time away from all of the commotion in other parts of your home.
Be sure that this room is pet friendly—make sure there aren’t any hazards, such as small toys, furniture legs, or electrical cords, that could cause harm if chewed on by accident! Also, make sure it’s comfortable enough for them: Be mindful of temperature fluctuations throughout each day (and night) because they can make a big difference in how well cats and dogs adapt to changes in temperatures and humidity levels.
If possible, try stocking up before Black Friday sales end so you’re prepared when things slow down again after Christmas Day passes by quickly without realizing just yet how much fun being together as a family means being together too!
Keep edible gifts away from pets.
Pets, like people, can be very excited about the holiday season. However, pets are also curious creatures who may want to investigate any new objects in their home. This can include things intended as Christmas gifts for people—so it’s essential to keep edible gifts away from pets!
If your pet is a dog: Don’t leave wrapping paper around where they can get at it.
If your pet is a cat: Make sure they don’t eat any bows or ribbons that might be attached to presents.
If your pet is a hamster: Keep an eye on where they go while exploring the house; make sure they don’t have access to candy canes or other sweet treats meant for humans!

Keep breakable decorations out of the paw’s reach.
- Keep breakable decorations out of the paw’s reach.
- Don’t leave them on the floor or the table or mantelpiece.
- Don’t leave them in any room where your cat might accidentally knock them over or chew on them (the bathroom and kitchen are especially dangerous).
Keep your pet calm on Christmas day.
- Give your pet a safe place to relax:
- Keep the music low so your animal doesn’t feel startled.
- Turn off the TV if possible.
- Give your pet a treat: If you plan on having visitors over for Christmas, consider giving them something special for their four-legged friend! It could be anything from a new toy or food treat — whatever makes sense for that specific animal will do just fine. Just make sure any treats are given in moderation and don’t have any harmful ingredients in them!
- Play with your pet: This can be done by playing fetch or tug-of-war (if applicable). Make sure to take care of your dog. Simply spending time with one another will keep you both happy this holiday season!
- Take your pet on walks: As we all know, dogs love fresh air and exercise; so why not take advantage of this opportunity? Walking is also an excellent way to bond with one another while spending quality time together outside under clear skies 🙂
Safely share your festive treats with your dog.
Here are some tips to safely share your festive treats with your dog.
- Check the ingredients. Pets should not eat chocolate, raisins, grapes, or macadamia nuts unless they have been diluted with water or milk first, as these foods can lead to stomach upset and other severe consequences in dogs if ingested in large quantities.
- Don’t leave any of these treats unattended — it’s easy for a pet to find them and eat them all up! Make sure that the size of the food is appropriate for your dog’s mouth size (i.e., don’t serve him something that he could choke on).
- Be mindful of your pets this Christmas to help make your family happy and safe.
As a pet owner, you know that your furry friends are your most important family members. You want them to have a happy and safe holiday season!
Keep any dogs out of the kitchen if you plan on having guests over for Christmas dinner. There’s always the chance that someone will leave a treat out where they can reach it or even drop one on the floor as they walk from room to room. This will make your dog very excited—and possibly also very sick if he eats some chocolate that was meant for humans. Also, be sure not to let people feed dogs during the party if they haven’t been pre-approved by a vet first.
Ensure all decorations are pet friendly by checking labels before putting them up around your house during this festive time. If there isn’t an official label indicating whether or not something is safe around animals, then assume it will hurt their paws, so don’t use these types of decorations at all during this particular time when everyone gathers together and celebrates the love between friends/family members from faraway places who might soon visit with gifts under their arms.
