Dogs at Christmas

Christmas is an exciting time for all members of the family including your pets. The festivities are just weeks away and with many emotions floating around both in the lead up to and on the day, the changes in routine can often be stressful for the entire family and your dog.

Children are often on school holidays, invariably excited about the gifts and festivities to come, and parents and adults often have manic schedules in a bid to get everything done on time and within budget. All of this can be unsettling for your pets with disruptions to thier usual schedule, particularly if you are planning on having guests over.

Trying to minimise noise and levels of disruption can help by always providing a retreat or quiet place for your dog to retire to when things get too much.

However, if you are planning to go away this Christmas rather than spending it at home, whether abroad or somewhere else within the UK, there are other options for your dog which won’t result in anxiety or nerves on their part. We know that no dog owner really wants to leave their dog in kennels.

At Home from Home Dog Boarding, we can find a loving home for your much loved pet to have his own holiday and avoid any further disruptions to their schedule while you’re away on your Christmas break.

Of course we recommend that not only should you pack everything your dog needs for their trip away but also a Christmas present they can play with on the day. Whether it’s novelty reindeer antlers, a new squeaky toy or coat to wear on winter walks.

If you’re planning on doing something different this Christmas, make sure that your dog is happy with a holiday with Home from Home.
