How to make your dog part of the Thanksgiving festivities
Thanksgiving is a great time to get together with family, friends, and loved ones—including your four-legged friend! Here are a few tips on how to make sure your dog enjoys the holiday as much as you do.
First, before the big day, make sure your pet is up-to-date on all their vaccinations. This will ensure that they stay healthy and happy during all the excitement.
Secondly, create a space for them in the house where they can feel comfortable and safe. This may be their crate or bed, or even just a designated spot on the couch.
Third, include them in any Thanksgiving activities that are appropriate for pets—such as going for a walk before or after the meal, or playing fetch in the backyard.
And lastly, make sure to give them plenty of love and attention throughout the day!
By following these simple tips, you can make sure that your dog has a wonderful Thanksgiving—right alongside the rest of the family.
