Are Your Holiday Decorations ‘Dog-Proof’?

Ask anyone what their favorite part of the holidays is and “decorating” is probably near the top of the list. But we’re not the only ones who love twinkling lights, shiny ornaments, and dangling flowers — your pup is a fan too.

While we all want to fill our homes with holiday cheer, the most important thing is to keep our dogs safe.

Keeping Your Dog Safe This Holiday Season

When decorating for the holidays, make sure to:

Choose fake plants over the real thing.

Unfortunately, our favorite holiday plants are also some of the most poisonous to dogs. Plants like holly, mistletoe, and poinsettias can cause stomach aches and vomiting in many dogs.

Secure the tree.

We’ve all seen home videos of a dog jumping for joy and knocking right into the family Christmas tree. While you may not be able to control your dog’s excitement, you can double and triple check that your tree is anchored.

Never leave your dog in the same room as a lit candle.

While this may seem obvious, it can be easy to forget about scented candles and roaring fireplaces. Since even the smallest candle can be knocked over by a wagging tail, we suggest opting for electric candles just to be safe.

Skip the tinsel.

Tinsel isn’t easily digestible, to say the least. If your dog eats even a little bit of this stringy decoration, it can get stuck in his intestines and be really difficult to pass. And just like the plants mentioned above, it can also cause stomach problems and vomiting.
