Now that you’ve got a year’s worth photos of your pets, create a keepsake present with your favorite pet pics.  Check out Shutterfly for a wide range of gifts that can be made with your photos including water bowls, dog tags, and placemats for your pets.  If you’re decorating a tree, order an ornament made with the best selfie you took this year with your pets!

Playdate Party & Pampering

Just as you treat yourself, spoil your pup with a doggie play date with your pup’s closest pals. Take your plans to social media and create a small event out of it: a doggy holiday party.  If your pup loves getting a new do, pamper your beloved canine companion at the groomers with a shampoo and cut after their romp around the mud puddles.  Finish the pampering with these holiday groomer bows and get out the camera for your holiday pics!

If your dog’s dream has always been to run free, it may be the year to invest in an invisible dog fence for your yard.
