Many of the things we love about the holidays can actually be stressful for dogs. From large gatherings to trips away from home, changes in our routines and environment can upset our pets and lead to unwanted behaviours.
Here are 5 ways you can help your dog feel more relaxed this holiday season.
Create a quiet, safe haven away from guests and gatherings.
Play calming music for your dog to help drown out background noise.
Fill the area with favourite toys, treats, comfortable bedding and necessities like fresh water.
Remind visitors to be patient – let your dog decide who they want to interact with on their own time.
