Thanksgiving Safety Tips for Your Dog (+FREE cheat sheet!)
With Thanksgiving just a few days away, I wanted to share 4 tips to make your day go smoothly AND this includes a quick download to help with your success.
#1 Kitchen Safety Curious and hungry pets can be dangerous in the kitchen. They can get into the garbage (so take it out often) or just help themselves to whatever has been placed on the counter. Potentially knocking over hot dishes or sharp objects.
#2 Door Safety With the potential of having guests coming and going, it is always important to ensure that our pets have a collar and tag on in case they slip out the door while we are not looking. This small tip can be the difference in our pets making it safely back to us if found by a neighbor.
#3 Food Safety There is a LONG list of Thanksgiving foods that are not safe for dogs (or cats). This includes:
Turkey skin, drippings and gravy
Onion and garlic cloves
Fatty trimmings or other fatty foods
Corn on the cob
And of course, Alcohol
But with every “don’t” list, we should also have a “do” list. Thanksgiving food that is safe to share with your dog includes:
White turkey meat
Plain yams and sweet potatoes
Carrots and green beans
My last tip, #4, includes a download just for you!
