Holidays are not only a great time to celebrate with your friends and family, but also your Service Dog. Here are 10 great ways to celebrate the holidays with your Service Dog:
1. Make Them Special Holiday Cookies
After all, everyone deserves treats over the holidays.
Here is a great 3 ingredient dog treat recipe that we found from Munchkins and the Military.
Bonus: If you are giving some treats out to fellow Service Dogs, here are some great free printable gift tags from Hip2Save, which you can add to the jar. Check them out here.
2. Put Up a Special Tree Just for Them
Just make sure that it is up high enough so they don’t bump into it!
3. Buy Them Something Special
They may not know what the holidays are, but they will still enjoy the present.
4. Walk Around and Look at the Christmas Lights
Grab your furry friend, a hot chocolate and enjoy the sights and sounds of the holiday season.
5. Take a Holiday Photo
Check out our blog on Holiday Photos You Need to Get of Your Service Dog, for great picture ideas.
6. Watch a Holiday Movie Together
Our favourites are Santa Buddies, The Dog Who Saved Christmas and The 12 Dogs of Christmas.
7. Take Them to the Christmas Tree Farm
They will love to get a whiff of all the scents of the season!
8. Buy them the coziest sweater
Don’t hesitate to get yourself a matching one as well!
9. Go For a Run In the Snow
Because it truly is magical. Just make sure that you dress warm!
9. Kick Back and Relax
Sometimes amongst the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can be easy to forget to just relax and enjoy.
10. Pay it Forward
Holidays are a great way to give back to others. Check out our blog on 10 Reasons to Donate to a Service Dog Organization this Holiday Season.
