Your dog is not a Christmas tree! I can’t believe I feel the need to say that. However, through personal experience and searching the internet, I have seen dogs completely wrapped in holiday paper with instructions available on how to do this, as well as dogs with Christmas bells around their necks and Christmas lights strewn around their bodies.
I see no harm in a well-fitting holiday sweater or even a Santa cap for a great photo -op but please don’t decorate your dog with holiday wrapping paper, lights, bells, wreaths, or anything else that belongs on a Christmas tree or under it.
Can you imagine having bells ringing in your ears all day? Especially when a dog’s ears are extremely sensitive. Please consider how your best furry family member will feel.
Additionally, please keep your dog safe. Trees can fall over. Wires can be bitten into. Decorations can be harmful if chewed or swallowed. If you have a puppy or dog that is better off staying away from the Christmas tree, please use a pet or child playard or pen around it.
FROM OUR MURPHDOG FAMILY TO YOURS, WE WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY, HEALTHY and SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON.
