Always supervise your dog around the Christmas tree to prevent any unexpected mishaps. Dogs can be curious, especially with new decorations.
Make sure the tree is securely anchored to prevent it from toppling over if your dog decides to investigate. A falling tree can be dangerous.
Opt for pet-friendly decorations. Avoid using ornaments that can be easily broken and might harm your dog if chewed or swallowed.
Avoid using tinsel, as it can be a choking hazard for dogs if ingested. Choose safer alternatives to add sparkle to your tree.
Keep gifts and treats out of your dog's reach. Some presents may contain items that are harmful to dogs, such as chocolate or small toys.
Keeps all Christmas lights and cords are safely out of your dog's reach. Dogs might chew on cords, which can lead to electric shock.
Secure the tree stand so your dog can't access the water reservoir. Tree water might contain preservatives or fertilizers that are harmful to pets.
