Happy Holidays: What’s on Your Pet’s Wish List?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Towns all around the country are lit up with festive lights, everyone is dressing in their holiday best and kids everywhere are diligently writing out their wish list for Santa. But what about our pets? This is a wonderful time of year for them as well, and who’s to say that they don’t have a wish list of their own? Sure, their handwriting skills may not be quite up to par, but I’m willing to bet that they would make out a list if they could. What would be on your pet’s wish list?

10 Things that Might be on Your Pet’s Wish List

  1. A New Bed – Have you crawled in and tested out your pet’s bed lately? Yeah, probably not. Chances are it may not be as soft and comfy as it once was and your pet deserves only the best, right?
  2. A Warm Sweater – Brrr, it’s getting cold outside and daily walks may not be as enjoyable for the short-haired dogs of the world. A new, warm sweater could easily do the trick to keep them warm on those chillier days. Some dogs aren’t too keen on wearing clothes, but it’s worth a try!
  3. New Treats – If your pet has been indulging in the same treats day in and day out, buying something new during the holiday season could be a real – well – treat!
  4. A Certificate Good for a ‘Doggie’s Day Out’– Your dog’s tail is already wagging over this one! Most dog’s love a chance to get out of the house and embark on an adventure – even if that just means to the grocery store and back. However, they would love even more a trip to the dog park or walking the trails at the local state park.
  5. A Shiny New Collar – Do you want to see your pet proudly prance around the house with their nose in the air and a smile on their face? A new collar is sure to do the trick! They will be prancing around like they just found a new pair of jeans that fit like a dream. Trust us!
  6. A Doggie (or Kitty) Door – Ok, so this one takes a little bit more effort, but it is completely worth it in the long run. Your dog or cat will love the freedom of being able to enjoy the fenced outdoors at their leisure, without having to ‘ask for permission’ every time they need to go outside.
  7. A Trip to the Hair Salon – Is your pet looking their holiday best? Even though your pet may be hesitant upon arrival, they will leave feeling their absolute best! You aren’t the only one who wants to look their best for this year’s holiday festivities!
  8. New Games to Play – What does your pet like to do for fun? Play fetch or chase a tiny red light all around the house? Those are fun games, but why not give them a gift that keeps on giving and come up with a new favorite game for you and your pet to enjoy together? That’s a sure way to get your dog’s tail wagging and your cat purring up a storm.
  9. Quality Time with YOU – This one is sure to be on your pet’s wish list every single year. Quality time with you will forever be one of your pet’s favorite things in the entire world, so be sure to give your pet some extra love and attention during the holiday season – and all year long!
  10. Homemade Holiday Treats – Have you ever considered making your pet some homemade treats? The holidays usually inspire a lot of us to do more baking than we would any other time of the year, so why not do some research and test out a recipe to try for your pet. And for that matter, maybe Santa has a dog that would appreciate a homemade cookie as well.
