Fido’s Holiday Agenda

Season’s Greetings! This always a very special and beautiful time of year. It’s also really busy! You may soon find your schedule filling up with parties, dinners, and other events. Your canine buddy may also have a few things on his calendar for the next few weeks. A Marietta, GA vet lists some of Fido’s holiday plans below.

Door Doggy Duties

Fido will definitely let you know when there is someone at the door. If your furry friend tends to greet guests by knocking them over, take time to work on his petiquette. That’s just bad doggy manners!

Look Extra Adorable

Make sure your pooch puts his best foot forward for guests. Give Fido a bath before the holidays, and clip his nails. Then, snap some cute photos of your canine pal in front of the tree or another seasonal backdrop. There’s no such thing as too many cute dog photos!

Make New Friends

Many people have more visitors than usual at this time of year. Fido may seize the opportunity to score himself some extra ear scritches and belly rubs.


There are many things to love about our canine companions, but one of their cutest traits is their sheer playfulness. Fill Fido’s stocking with some fun new toys! You can get your pooch a classic dog toy, like a rope toy or pull toy, or try something new, like a mechanical laser pointer.

Enjoy A Special Treat

Food is a central part in many holiday celebrations. Fido will be paying very close attention to those delicious seasonal dishes! It’s fine to give your furry bff a special snack. Just stick to safe, suitable treats. Plain, cooked meat, fish, or chicken, without the skin, bones, or fat, is a good bet. You can also give your pup some store-bought treats, or even make your own.


Dogs sleep more than usual when it’s cold out, and who can blame them? Chilly winter days are perfect napping weather! Get your pooch a new bed to look adorable in.

Hang Out With The Humans

At the end of the day, Fido really wants nothing more than to spend time with you. Pay lots of attention to your pet, so he doesn’t feel ignored or forgotten during the holiday rush.
