Thanksgiving: Dog Style

By ShelbyGottschalk. | Dog Info Holidays

Thanksgiving is a time to have friends and family around, and your family also includes your dog! It’s easy to forget that this time of year can be a big health risk for our pups, and we have to keep them supervised.

Thanksgiving: Dog Style

Here are some things to remember this holiday season…

The Food

Thanksgiving usually means a feast and a lot of these foods are actually toxic to our pups! The first thing most people think of is: Turkey…

Thanksgiving Dog StyleTurkey skin is actually super high in fat and holds all of the seasoning and butter (although delicious to us humans, toxic to pets).

Cooked bones are also very dangerous. You may think you are giving your dog a special treat to enjoy, but the cooked bones actually splinter and can get stuck and be harmful – or fatal – to their health.

Dessert is common sense for most, but it’s easy to forget that you left a pie on the counter and Fido jumps up and gets it. Just try to keep all holiday foods away from the edge of the counter, and high up!

100% Pumpkin Puree is great for dogs – offer a spoonful for a nice treat, but no sugar or any additives!

Thanksgiving Dog StyleThe People 

During the holidays, people are constantly coming in and out of the doors. Some are friends and family, some neighbors.

Your dogs may be scared of the new people or not used to numbers. If you know you have a large group coming and your dog will feel distressed, it’s best to put Fido in their crate or a room they are comfortable in until things return back to normal.

If Fido has no issues with company, make sure you have eyes on him at all times when people are coming in and out as to not have any run aways! If you can’t guarantee you’ll have all hands on deck, keep Fido sectioned off to one area of the house that isn’t near the door.

Thanksgiving Dog StyleThe Decorations

I’m sure this is a no brainer to most everyone, but decorations are toxic and dogs so easily swallow the craziest things or turn a plush turkey into a play toy! If you have any valuable decorations, keep them out of reach and dog-friendly.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and furkids. I hope with these reminders you can have a stress free holiday with those you love!

My name is Shelby Gottschalk and I am the momma bear! I’ve been obsessed with animals for as long as I can remember. I’ve worked in vet offices, I work doing pet sitting, so naturally animal care was something I wanted to know more about. I decided to do research about holistic medicine/treatment and ended up getting a certificate in Holistic Pet Care. This led me to be curious about pet nutrition – what is in that dried kibble we are feeding our pets? The answers made me so sad after seeing so many vets that I worked with sell these brands that I knew were doing more harm than good. It made me evaluate my own dog’s food and there was no going back. My dogs are my kids, and I believe nutrition can prevent disease and save lives. Join me on my journey with raw food, trying new things and all things dog.

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.

Quick delivery, easy install, great quality!

Our cargo cover got here quickly, took one minute to install, and has nice padding and looks like it will last. We have 3 big dogs so it will get a workout! We have a GMC Acadia and the fit is as close to custom as you can get.
