The holiday season is upon us and our furry friends will howl, purr and deck their paws with warm booties to keep their paws cozy this winter. It’s the time of year when they woof with joy and prance in the snow. There’s a sleigh full of delightful activities awaiting you and your pets, including getting your pet glammed up for a photoshoot. If you’ve been searching for things to do when the weather outside is frightful with your canine and feline companions, check out our list of five festive things to do with your pets this holiday season.
Paw-Fect Photoshoot — A holiday photoshoot is a festive activity and heartwarming memory in the making for you and your pet. The photographer will capture your furry friend amidst twinkling lights and seasonal decorations to preserve the magic of the holidays. These snapshots become cherished keepsakes, immortalizing the love and joy shared between you and your four-legged BFF. Beyond the sentimental value, a pet photoshoot gives you a chance to showcase your pet’s adorable holiday attire. Time to break out the matching Christmas sweaters! Don’t forget to get your pet camera-ready for a photoshoot by grooming them with a deshedder. When they have less fur on them, you won’t have to worry about as much fur on you if you’re joining them in the photo. Your pet will look fabulous once they’re well-groomed and well-brushed for their paw-some photoshoot!
Pet-Friendly Winter Wonderland Walk — Everyone loves walking in a winter wonderland. So would your dog! Before and after your walk, give your pet a nice, quick grooming session with the best pet hair remover. Then, take your pup for a pet-friendly walk this holiday season while embracing the enchanting sights of snowy landscapes and festive lights. Bundle up in layers so your pet can revel in the winter air while forming unforgettable memories. A seasonal stroll can help foster a deeper connection with your pet. Your dog will enjoy the mental stimulation and physical activity of being outside during the winter, a season when many of us and our pets end up cooped up inside for far too long. Amble through holiday-themed wonderlands and embrace the spirit of the season with each paw-printed step.
DIY Pet Treat Baking Extravaganza — Not all of us can be expert bakers for the holiday season, so if you’re looking for a simple DIY pet treat baking recipe, check out these 25 quick and easy dog treat recipes made with five ingredients or less. Now that’s what we’re talking about! A DIY pet treat baking extravaganza turns your kitchen into a delicious-smelling, heartwarming haven of holiday delights.

Pet-friendly ingredients like pumpkin and peanut butter waft through the air while adding a festive touch to your home. There’s something so rewarding about watching your pet eagerly enjoy the fruits of your labor, providing a sense of accomplishment for you and strengthening the bond between you two.
Cozy Movie Night — Create a warm, intimate experience for you and your pet with a cozy movie night. It’s the perfect holiday treat as you cuddle together under blankets surrounded by plush cushions. Unwind in the glow of festive lights and pet-themed movies. Enjoy the ambiance of a quiet night as you and your furry friend snuggle together. It’s a tranquil alternative to the hustle and bustle of the busy season. Whether you want to watch a classic holiday film, a playful cartoon or a heartwarming pet documentary, a cozy movie night offers a shared moment of relaxation and joy for everyone from the comfort of your own couch.
Santa Paws Gift Exchange — Shower your cherished pet with holiday love with a Santa Paws gift exchange. Wrap up their favorite toys or treats and watch as they unwrap their personalized presents. The joy reflected in their eyes will be a forever memory for you to look back on for years to come. The delightful change adds a touch of magic to the season, further strengthening the bond between you and your pet. During the gift exchange, you and your pet can wear matching holiday sweaters. To prevent pet hair from getting all over both of your sweaters, clean and dry your clothing with dryer sheets for pet hair. Then, take all the pics and vids to your heart’s content to capture the moment when Fido started gnawing on their favorite peanut butter-flavored dog bone with a quintessential ugly Christmas sweater on both of you.
As your beloved pets bark the halls with squeaky toys, we hope that you’re excited to embark on any of these heartwarming adventures with your furry companions. The holiday season is a time for togetherness, joy and love. There’s no better way to celebrate than by including your pets in the festivities. Whether you take a winter walk under the starry night or snuggle up for a cozy movie night in front of the fireplace, you’ll love creating lasting memories for both you and your animal family members. Happy holidays!
