Make it a pet friendly Christmas.

Caring for pets over the holidays. 
The holiday period brings a couple of challenges when it come to your pets. If you are travelling and can’t take your pet with you, make sure you book them into a great kennel / cattery or get someone reliable to look after them at home while you’re away.You can bet that your pets will miss you and could suffer from the separation. You need to ensure that all their needs are met to minimise the distress for them. Ensure:

  •  There is plenty of shade for them
  • Shelter from rain or storms
  • Easy access to water
  • They are fed close to their regular feeding schedule.
  • Someone to take them for a walk or stay and play with them each day

This will keep them in better spirits and not feel isolated. A few of their favourite toys, blankets, and bedding will also help them feel secure.

There are house-sitting services where the sitter comes and stays in your home so that the pet’s routine is maintained. You can give them a detailed list of tasks.

Pet Friendly Garden 

Christmas is a time when some people decide to buy a pet. It”s a beautiful surprise to give to someone you care for. However, be sure they fully understand that having a pet means quite a bit of responsibility. You need to ensure that your new fur-friend is not forgotten once the excitement of Christmas has passed.

One of the services provided by Gary Winter Design is the design and implementation of Pet Friendly gardens. With a little careful planning, you can create the very best environment for them.

I provide a consultation service so that you have a plan of what to do to make it the perfect space for your pet. You can then do the installation yourself or have GWD do it for you. We will be happy to assist.

Don’t forget that New Year’s Eve fireworks can also make pets very upset. They will need a place where they can feel safe while all the noise and excitement goes on.

If you’re planning to get a new pet, give me a call to arrange a consultation so you can make a pet-friendly environment around your property.

Hope you and your pets have a wonderful time!

Kind regards
