Holiday Photos

You know those family Christmas card photoshoots that you have to deal with every year? They’re always better with the dog included!

This holiday season, bring your dog along to all of your photo ops. Whether you’ve got a professional photographer or you’re just using your phone camera, your pooch will be happy to be included and to spend time with the family. Plus, the pictures will be that much cuter.

For bonus points, dress your dog up in a festive sweater or a red and green bowtie. This is a great way to get funny holiday cards with your dogs.

Visit Santa Paws

Many local and chain pet stores often have Santa Paws come to their stores for a few days in December. You can bring in your dog and get pictures with him sitting on Santa’s lap, making for an adorable keepsake.

Just check your local stores and see if they offer this. After you visit Santa Paws, you could also let your dog pick out a toy for himself before you leave!

Look at the Lights

Take your dog on a walk to marvel at the neighborhood’s lights and Christmas decorations. You could also pack up your dog in the car and take him to look at the beautiful, twinkling lights downtown or another display.
