It is advised that you should not put any eatables on the Christmas tree such as popcorn garlands to which your dog or cat gets attached and plans to ruin your post holidays decoration(dog treats). Dogs are also a part of  As the post holiday season would also be around the corner you can help your dog and cat understand and train your pets such as dogs and cats that the Christmas tree is harmless and enhances the look of your place.

Choose an artificial tree

Artificial Christmas trees are a better option for homes having pets such as a dog or cat.  They come in convenient packings that can be transported easily in your cars and take up much less place. Buying a real tree is really stressful as its transportation is very difficult. They also come with a tree stand for support so that they won’t fall or lean even after your pet dog tries to do so. Setting it up and cleaning it up is also very easy and it is also good for your pocket and you don’t need to water it too. Also, the fallen needles from the tree can be harmful to your dog and cat and there are certain chemicals hazardous for your pet dog. Dogs get used to the artificial tree with time.

Keep the tree plain for some time so that your dog can adjust

Your dog would take some time to adjust to a new huge thing in the house that is your Christmas tree. First of all, trying to adapt to the change would be difficult for your dog, and secondly, a decorated one with lights and ornaments will not be acceptable to your pet dog. For the initial days you need to keep the tree bare and then in presence of your pet dog try to decorate it with ornaments such as bells and lights. You need to help your dog or pup understand that the needles of the tree would be a part of your family for some time and won’t hurt him. This is a good solution and everyone loves it and your dad too.

Use pet/dog gates to calm down his curiosity

No matter how hard you try, you can’t hide your tree from your dog as holidays are coming and you as pet parents will have lots of time to spend with your dogs. Whether you keep it behind the couch with full protection or anywhere else your dog would surely reach out to your dog tree and spoil it. So to prevent any such issues it’s better you safeguard it with pet/dog gates and assemble by using the post manual. You need to choose a pet gate according to your dog size, weight, and height. You need to make sure that you keep your dog safe from the decorations, ornaments, tree, and more.

Keep candles at a height away from his mouth

 Christmas is not just about decorating the tree but it is also that time of the year apart from holidays lightning up the house is important. The most common way that people use is candles and it is used by all. But you need to keep in mind that candles should be put up at a height so that your dog is safe and it should be away from his mouth as well. You can place the candles in your living room and away from the reach of your pet dog for his own safety. there are many posts and blogs on the Internet about how you can use candles in the right way.

Choose your decorations carefully

Dogs have a habit of chewing and can turn everything into a chew toy so you need to make sure that you have a dog-proof Christmas tree. Sometimes people hire a dog trainer during these days to train your dog to behave better. You also need to choose your electrical cords very carefully as these cords are dangerous for your pets and you can’t cage them also. Offer your dog some treats every time he behaves nicely. Decorations that your dog is attracted to should be kept out of his sight so protect your trees.
