#2: All your dog wants for Christmas is a bake-a-thon. 

TAKE THIS TEXT: 
Are you baking this season? 

Include a tasty homemade pet treat! Choose recipes with a few wholesome ingredients. And make sure to AVOID added sugars, artificial sweeteners, or salt. 

Here’s a yummy Pumpkin Spice Dog Treat to try out. Make sure you label it as a dog treat so human guests don’t devour them, too. 🤷 🤦

#11: Play hide-n-seek in the snow! 

TAKE THIS TEXT:
Have you ever played hide-n-seek in the snow?

Hide or toss a waterproof toy in the snow and let them find it. Don’t use their favorite toy though – they’d be bummed if it gets lost until the spring thaw.💡

How about some catnip “mistletoe” – hang some catnip under a table or anywhere your cat will be delightfully surprised. Avoid using ribbon or string to hang it. Real mistletoe is a no-no - it’s toxic.
