Whether you’re zooming or safely gathering in person this year, we hope you and your pets have a wonderful holiday season!
Tip 1: Keep to Their Routine
It sounds too simple, doesn’t it? But it’s the truth, routines are extremely important for our pets. It can be annoying when you want to sleep in for a change during the holidays, but your dog wants their regular morning walk, or your cat expects their breakfast at a certain time. However, the more you stick to your routine, the safer, calmer and more comfortable your pet will feel this holiday.
Even, or especially, if you have guests comes over, maintain your pet’s routine. Dogs and children are similar: routine is everything and when they know they will still be fed, walked, and loved at the same time, it keeps them calm. You can even have your family and friends aid in your pet’s routine, joining you on your daily walk or helping with feeding or their play and enrichment routines.
Tip 2: Introduce New People Slowly
Your pets might be wary of new people. After all, even most PEOPLE are wary of strangers! Imagine the stress of a bunch of strangers in your space, plus most of those people are bigger than you and also may try to pet you or pick you up. It is unnerving, isn’t it? That is the reality for your pet, especially if you have a small dog or cat who can be easily picked up.
You can take some of this anxiety away from your pet by introducing new people slowly. If everyone is expected to arrive at your home around the same time, keep your pet in a quiet room alone, where you can bring in guests one at a time. Try not to overwhelm your dog or cat if they are already nervous. It is also okay if you have a nervous pet to not allow people to meet them at all. It is just important that you do what is best for your individual pet.
