If you are having guests over on Christmas eve, make sure you pets are comfortably secured in another part of the house, especially if the front door is going to keep opening and closing. Make sure they have food and water, that cats have a litter box and be sure to take your dog for a walk and a potty break before hand too.
Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
