The holiday season is a time to celebrate family and friends. It's also one of the busiest times of the year with celebrations, food, and decorations. So I've compiled a list of tips to keep your pup safe.


  1. Holiday Decorations - Including Lights! Be sure to check all light wires for fraying. Sometimes pups cannot resist the temptation can chew - so be sure you unplug all lights when you are not home. Keep candles and other decorations out of reach as well.

  2. Ribbons and Decorative Collars - While your pet may look adorable with that ribbon tied around their collar, it may not always be the safest. Always make sure that any decorative collar or item is not going to choke your dog. Want a safe alternative? Check out Cheeky Chic Bow's line of holiday bows!

  3. Holiday Food - Did you know? The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center fields 20% more calls during the holiday season. Sometimes we get busy or aren't paying attention and our dog just can't resist the temptation of scraps or desserts. If you suspect your pup has eaten something poisonous, get them to an emergency vet immediately. Here's a good infographic from Petco :


Now, armed with info about safety for your pet, let's all have a wonderful holiday season!
