4 Ways to Include Your Dog in the Holiday Fun!

Here at DogJoy.Love we are ‘furever’ thinking of our best buds and how to bring them joy! 

Tis the season to be jolly, and you’re sure gonna want to create some extra joy for your fur babies this time of year!

Here are a handful of ways to incorporate your precious pup into the holiday festivities:

1. Extra Walks for Extra Joy
Take an extra walk or two each day. As we’re most likely eating a little bit more this time of year, it’s a win-win. Your pup will find extra joy in saying hi to their neighborhood buds a couple more times a day! Plus, they’re obviously going to enjoy all the extra sniffs!

2. Whipping Up Holiday Delights: Homemade Treats for Your Pup
The holidays are a time for indulging, and our pups deserve some sweet treats too! Show your pup just how much you love them with our go-to homemade dog treat recipes: 
3. Park Playtime: Outdoor Fun and Games

Play some fun games with your dog in the local park or your yard. Getting outside for some fresh air will be good for all involved! Games like fetch and chase are perfect for your dog and easy for you.

If you are more inclined to put some work in, build a homemade agility course. Tunneling through cardboard boxes and jumping through hula hoops are a good place to start. More elaborate agility courses are available at sites such as Amazon and Wayfair.

4. Stress-Free Zone: Creating Comfort for Your Dog
Be sure to keep tabs on the stress level of your dog, as we all know, things can get a little crazy around the holidays. With all the added energy your pup can feel overwhelmed and stressed.

Create a private space for your dog to retreat to and feel safe. Physical activity can alleviate stress in your pooch. Those games of fetch and chase will help too. Gentle massage can also do wonders for stress management. Take your pup out of the chaos, and bring on the joy!

Happy Holidays from your dog-lovin’ friends at DogJoy.Love!
