Top 10 Howliday Safety Tips: Day 10

Shocking But True...

WOW, your Christmas tree, holiday lights and decorations look fantastic! But what you've created as a feast for the eyes may inadvertently be a danger zone for your pets. Here a a couple of bright holiday ideas to "chew on" so that your pets don't... chew on them, that is:
  • Be sure to keep electrical cords hidden, out of reach or taped down to save your dog from electrical shocks.
  • Plug your lights into a GFI outlet that will interrupt the flow of electricity if the cord becomes wet or chewed… perhaps in the mouth of an unsuspecting pup.

Hi Eileen,
I am learning alot about how to keep my puperoni safe during the holidays. My fuzzy butt Bandit is aptly named as he will steal anything hanging low enough for him to grab. He also has no qualms about digging into the purse of a guest and running off with their glass case. (all these examples have happened and put me in quite a few imbarrasing predicaments. Thanks to your tips he will stay safe and out of trouble.
