The holidays are a time of joy, love, and light. It’s also the time of year when we dust off the decorations and string up twinkling lights and tinsel in celebration. But, if you’re celebrating with a dog, there are some holiday hazards to keep in mind before you pull those boxes down from the attic or invite the family over for that holiday party!

    Thank you for the great advice. We had one Christmas with tinsel that I would like to forget! Luckily, all was OK.

    I think anyone owning an animal needs to look into all things harmful to their pet just as you would a child.

    Thank you for the reminder, our 10 month old Rottweiler has to be watched so we’ll find different way to decorate

    Thanks for the article and warning. We have found that a common holiday decoration — a bowl of mixed nuts (unshelled)– can also be dangerous. We had a dog who would take out the walnuts and crack and eat them. We didn’t catch her until she had made herself very sick!

    Thank you for posting such great information. I always enjoy your articles. I remember when my beagle, TBone, was a puppy. He had a small body with a large head to supports is big floppy ear, such a cutie pie, so sweet and always gentle. He was fascinated by the Chritmas tree lights. He never wanted to chew on them or the presents or get into the tree but instead would just sit and look. He’s eight years old now and lays and watches me as I put it up and decorate, then we snuggle and enjoy!

    Thank you for this article. We got our first puppy, Artoo, in June and I have been wondering how he would react to the Christmas tree. We set up a fake tree the other day and so far he has only laid underneath it, thankfully not showing any interest in chewing on the branches or lights! We will not be putting on any tinsel, bows, etc. Wondering how he will react to the ornaments though when we put them on – we’ll keep the most valuable ones higher up, but any advice to keep him away from the ornaments in general? Thanks for a helpful article for a first-time dog owner!

    Great article, thank you for posting. Since having furkids we have drastically thinned out our decorations and removed a lot of dangerous hazards. It’s also important to remember that Poinsettias are harmful to pets. I like that you included “Holiday visitors” I think some people tend to overlook that in the hustle & bustle. Our furkids have stranger danger, so we are extra cautious and most times they are most comfortable in their rooms in their beds.

    Wow, these are all great tips. Luckily I have two Chis and make sure everything is on tables they can’t reach, including our little Christmas tree.
