Christmas Tree Safety
A real Christmas tree can be lovely, but it can also be quite hazardous when it comes to pets.
The water bucket, the tree oils and the needles can make a dog sick or in worst case they could cause death. Learn more in this article I found: Christmas Tree Safety Tips For Pet Parents
Puppies And Christmas Trees
Young puppies and Christmas trees do not necessarily mix well. If you want to put up a tree, but you are worried about your puppy’s safety, try to come up with some alternative solutions until your dog has grown up and he has been trained.
One idea is to consider placing your Christmas tree behind a large window on your backyard terrace or a balcony. This way your pet has no access to the tree while he is indoors yet you get to enjoy the tree through your window. However, you might have to skip decorating the tree with ornaments and only put some outdoor lights on it.
Another idea is to consider setting up a protective fence around your Christmas tree to block your dog’s access to it. However, this might not always look so pleasing to the eye. Thankfully there are numerous Christmas tree alternatives available and some of them are quite creative. Or what do you think about branches in a vase decorated with ornaments or how about a Christmas tree wall decal?
