During the hectic holiday season, it is important to keep your dogs in mind. Here are Cesar’s Top Tips for a happy pooch all Winter long!
1.) Tire your dog out before visiting or receiving holiday guests. Keep in mind that holiday visits are not typical visits. They may involve more heightened energy than normal, since often we haven’t seen these people in a while, and dog people have a tendency to get excited around others’ pets. Your dog is more likely to behave if it’s just had a nice long walk.
2.) Don’t forget rules, boundaries, and limitations just because it’s the holidays! When it comes to the aromatic holiday food, sweets, and candies lying about the house, there are many temptations for your dog. You have to remind him or her that the rules, boundaries, and limitations are the same.
3.) Protect your dog from the cold. Many breeds are not built to handle cold weather
4.) Let your dog check the weather. Dogs don’t have the Weather Channel, so they don’t know why they are being denied a long walk for the day. Allow your dog to step outside and feel for itself that it is too cold or too stormy to go on a long walk.
