How To Make Sure Your Dog Has The Best Christmas Ever

Haters will say, "But dogs don't know it's Christmas." Oh, they know.

Posted on

1. Dress them up in their favorite Christmas sweater.

WARNING: May exacerbate wiggle-butt syndrome.

2. Keep them warm and cozy every night with plenty of hearty cuddles.

Honestly, why wouldn't you do this all year anyway?

3. Watch their favorite movies with them.

Every pup's favorite flick is that nonspecific feature about the dog who learns to play basketball that we can't mention by name!

4. Hide dog treats around the house for them to find!

They'll literally think it's some sort of Christmas ghost that thinks they're a good dog. And they'll be half right.

5. Get them adorable dog mittens so they can prance around in the snow.

A sweater and a scarf couldn't hurt either.

6. Make a huge puppy fort out of all the leftover boxes and wrapping paper.

CATS ALLOWED.

7. Give them mistletoe kisses on their precious, precious little face.

Little-known fact: Your pupperoni derives energy from kisses. Look it up.

8. Play their favorite games.

THROW 👏 THE 👏 STICK 👏 OR 👏 BALL 👏 OR 👏 SQUEAKY 👏 TOY 👏 AGAIN 👏 PLEASE

9. GO SLEDDING.

For them, it's like driving with their head out the window, but more Christmas-y.

Your best friend has been so, so good this year. So make this Christmas the best one yet and give 'em GREENIES™ treats!
