Dog proofing your house for the holidays

The holidays are a wonderful time of year; friends and family visiting and an abundance of new toys for your pet.  Those annual holiday items we think are beautiful and peaceful are viewed as toys by your dog and then a menace when they ingest it.  To make sure that your holiday runs smoothly, here are a few tips to dog proof your house during the holidays.

Everyone loves the Christmas lights that glow beautifully in the night this time of year; but there is an unseen hazard.
The Christmas tree looks beautiful to us but to a dog it is covered with lots of toys.
Everyone knows the best food of the year is made during the holiday season.
Dogs react to alcohol just like anyone does.
Holiday plants like poinsettias, mistletoe and holly can be dangerous to pets.
