Posted on November 13 2023

The holiday season is upon us. We know this because we heard ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ playing while scoping out a location for the big Top Shelf Dog holiday party!

What are your holiday plans? And do they include your faithful friend? Be sure to send us your pics at or tag us on Instagram

If you’re not sure how to make the holidays special consider this: The best way to celebrate is to include your four-legged friend in the festivities! Dogs are not just pets; they're family members who bring immense joy to our lives. Here are some fun activities to enjoy with your dog during this magical time of the year, along with a dog-themed joke to keep the laughter rolling!

1. Paw-some Winter Walks: Bundle up and take your dog for a stroll in a winter wonderland. Dogs love exploring new scents, and the crisp winter air adds an extra touch of excitement to their walks. Don't forget to bring along some dog-friendly booties to protect their paws from the cold!

2. DIY Doggy Treats: Get creative in the kitchen and bake some homemade dog treats. There are countless easy-to-make recipes online, ranging from peanut butter biscuits to pup-friendly pupcakes. Your dog will appreciate the extra effort, and you might find yourself sneaking a taste test too!

3. Yappy Hour with Friends: Host a yappy hour playdate with other dog owners and their furry pals. Let the dogs mingle while you and your friends enjoy some festive snacks and drinks. It's a great way for both you and your dog to socialize and spread holiday cheer.

4. Holiday-Themed Photoshoot: Dress your dog in adorable holiday outfits and have a photoshoot. Whether they're wearing reindeer antlers or a Santa hat, capturing these moments will create cherished memories. Plus, you'll have the perfect material for your holiday cards!

5. Doggy Movie Night: Snuggle up with your pup and watch dog-friendly movies together. There are plenty of heartwarming canine tales that both you and your furry friend will enjoy. Just don't forget the popcorn (for you) and dog treats (for them)!

Joke Time: Why did the dog sit in the shade?

Because he didn't want to be a hot dog!

Remember, the holiday season is all about spreading love and joy, and there's no better way to do that than by including your canine companion in the festivities. Have a woof-tastic holiday season filled with love, laughter, and lots of tail wags!
