Gift A Rescue Dog This Christmas

Published by:

3.9 million dogs enter American animal shelters each year, according to statistics from Do Something. However, the ASPCA reports that of these 3.9 million, just 1.6 million are adopted. With Christmas just a few weeks away, the dogs currently at Covington-based, Northshore Humane Society (NHS) are hoping that loving local parents consider adopting them and giving them as a gift to their children this festive season. However, before you flock to the NHS’ Pet Adoption Event here’s how to ensure that your family is prepared to welcome a dog into their home this Christmas.
A quiet Christmas is best  With Christmas being such a busy time for Covington families due to events such as the Christmas Past Festival to attend and friends and family to visit, it’s vital you gift a dog to your kids at the right time. Your dog will need time to adjust his or her’s new home, so it’s essential that you’re home throughout the holidays. A quiet Christmas at home is the ideal scenario as it will allow your new pet to get used to his surroundings as well as to you as owners. And, if you are expecting visitors, it’s wise to limit the number of guests coming into your home to just a few at a time to prevent your dog from becoming unsettled.

Enjoy the celebrations together The Daily Mail reports that 95% of U.S. pet owners buy their pets Christmas presents, with the average amount spent totaling $36. It’s only right to treat your new pooch this holiday season and pet toys are the perfect way to make your furry friend feel right at home this Christmas. A subscription box will allow your pooch to build up his toy collection throughout the year. And, chew toys are a great way to ensure your new pet’s teeth are looked after. Meanwhile, take a dog ball blaster to Covington’s Pretty Acres Dog Park and have fun together as a family once you’ve eaten your Christmas dinner.
Christmas safety A crucial factor to consider when you’ve got your kids and a furry hound bounding around your home on Christmas Day is festive safety. Twinkling fairy lights, pine cones and tinsel from your tree will excite and mesmerize your new dog. However, these all pose a risk to his health and safety. Pet Poison Helpline advises that all tinsel is removed from your home. This is because when it’s ingested by a pooch it can damage the intestinal tract which will result in a costly Christmas vet bill. Therefore, when it’s not possible to monitor your new dog, such as during your Christmas dinner, secure him in a safe and comfortable place such as in a crate in the utility room.
A rescue dog will make the perfect gift for your children this Christmas so long as you take steps to ensure that his introduction is as smooth as possible. Dogs need time to adjust, so a quiet family Christmas is ideal. Meanwhile, don’t forget to purchase a fabulous gift for your new pooch and make sure you dog-proof your home before his arrival.
