Doggie Daycare Santa Photos with Dogs
If your dog regularly goes to a doggie daycare then check with them if they will be conducting Santa photos with the dogs in attendance during certain days in December. As Santa is usually a staff member that the dogs are familiar with it’s a great way to get good dog Christmas photos.
Our local doggie daycare surprised us with photos of our dog with Santa last year in December. I love the dog Christmas ornaments on their Christmas tree too!
Vet Christmas Pet Photos
Check with your local vet too if they plan to organise pet Christmas photos. Last year our local vet organised a professional photographer who set up in a local park and took bookings for pet Christmas photos. A couple of my friends even got family Christmas pictures with horses they own that way.
If you want your dog to celebrate the countdown to Christmas with their own dog treat advent calendar this year check out our Dog Advent Calendar Buying Guide HERE, it also includes some cat advent calendars too.
Wishing you and your pets a PAW-SOME Christmas!
