Happy Howlidays! I love the holiday season — the cold weather, the yummy food, and of course, all of the festivities! You know who else loves them too? My dog, Casey and her dog cousins, Safari & Abbey. I’m thinking it may be because of all the extra lovin’ and gifts they get from the family. Here are the three of them lining up for a treat on Christmas!
It turns out that I’m not the only pet mama to spoil her pup during this time of year. That’s why I love this super cute website called TheNosePrint.com from Big Heart Pet Brands (the makers of Milk-Bone, Pup-Peroni, Canine Carry Outs, and Milo’s Kitchen). They really know how to celebrate the holidays with your pup!
Check out some of the fun doggy do-it-yourself ideas they’ve dreamed up. I’m loving the homemade paw-print ornament. I’ve seen these with children’s handprints before – such a cute idea to have your furry child make an ornament too?
The NosePrint.com also asked 3,000 Americans about their dog-related holiday habits, including whether their dog is involved in gift-giving, stocking-stuffing, Christmas sweater-wearing, and other holiday traditions. What they found is that Americans really LOVE their pets. For instance, did you know 71% of dog parents give gifts to their pups? Have you completed your Christmas doggy shopping yet?
5. To feel closer and bond with my dog: 43%
The study also shared how often dogs are included into popular Christmas traditions:
4. 29% dress up their dog in a holiday-themed costume or outfit.
5. 22% make or buy dog-themed holiday decorations.
For photos and instructions on how to add more dog-related fun to your home holiday traditions, check out these cool projects they have here.
Lucky for your pup, the folks at TheNosePrint.com have generously offered to give away a Christmas doggy care package filled with some of the most delicious stocking stuffer treats for your pup.
To be entered to win the care package, just visit this DIY decor article and tell me in the comments below which DIY doggy decor project that you think your family would love best.
