YuMOVE: The festive season and your dog
There are a million and one reasons why Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. From festive decorations and jolly jingles to plenty of presents and spending time with family. But where does your dog fit into this? Do they know it’s Christmas time?
The short answer is probably not. Dogs can understand patterns and become familiar with these seasonal changes and repetitions. And even if they don’t, the attention, toys, and food are enough to make up for the chaos of the festive period. If your dog is prone to feeling anxious or stressed around new people and loud noises, you might consider giving them a high-quality supplement designed for anxious dogs.
A calming supplement, like YuMOVE Calming Care for Dogs, can contain ingredients like Lemon Balm and L-Tryptophan, which help your dog feel more relaxed and support calm behaviour.
Other ways to reduce stress
• Maintaining their routine - stick to their usual feeding, exercise, and sleeping patterns to help them feel regulated.
• Introduce new people carefully - allow your dog to meet guests at their own pace and give them space to adjust.
• Provide them with a safe retreat – create a comfortable place to relax where they will not be disturbed.
If your dog tends to have a sensitive tummy, it might also be worth considering a digestive supplement over the festive season. A sensitive tummy can come from changes in diet, stress, difficulty digesting food, and the occasional sneaky scavenge. You may want to consider giving your dog a digestive supplement, like YuMOVE Digestive Care for Dogs and Cats, that helps them maintain a healthy gut.
