Thanksgiving Tips for Dog Parents – Keep Your Pup Safe and Happy This Holiday

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and of course – food. While having your dog join in on the Thanksgiving celebration can be fun, it's important to remember that some Thanksgiving foods are not good for dogs. In this blog post, we will give you tips on how to keep your pup safe and happy during Thanksgiving. We'll also tell you what foods to avoid feeding your dog from the table!

For Thanksgiving, you may be tempted to give your pup a special Thanksgiving dinner or snacks from the table. While it can seem like a nice gesture, it's important to remember that Thanksgiving foods like gravy, stuffing, and certain types of meat are not good for dogs. Even if your dog seems interested in the food on the table, it's best to resist feeding them anything other than their regular diet.

However, if you feel obligated to share some of your turkey dinner, follow the image guideline below.

If you're looking for ways to include your pup in Thanksgiving festivities without risking their health by sharing some of your turkey dinner, here are some ideas:

  • Give them a Thanksgiving-themed toy (like a turkey chew toy) as a special treat.
  • Take your dog for an extra long walk before heading over to any Thanksgiving gatherings – this will make them happy, and it’s a great way to work off some of that Thanksgiving dinner.
  • Give your pup lots of love and attention by playing games with them or just snuggling in front of the fireplace.

This Thanksgiving, make sure to include your pup in all the festivities! After all, they are part of your family, and when Thanksgiving arrives, there's nothing more important than spending quality time together. Have a safe, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving!
