Thanksgiving Traditions to Start with Pets


Thanksgiving is a time for traditions, both old and news, with family, friends, loved ones and pets. Start five new holiday traditions with your pet this year!

  1. Take a Morning ‘Turkey Trot’
    While the afternoon is generally reserved for traveling, eating and napping, Thanksgiving
    morning is the perfect time to enjoy a walk with your pet. Not only is this great exercise,
    but can help expend some of your pet’s energy for the rest of the day.
  2. Gather Up ALL of the Family
    Thanksgiving is a time for families and friends to come together and celebrate, including
    the ones with four legs and fur! Check with your host and ask if your pet can come with
    you, or if you are hosting, invite your guests to bring their pets with them. This gives the
    WHOLE family an opportunity to catch up and play with friends.
  3. Watch the Parade or Big Game Together
    Another longstanding tradition is snuggling up in your jammies to watch the parade
    together or catching the big game on TV. Curl up on the couch with your furry best friend
    for some extra bonding time. They’ll keep you warmer than a blanket, and they will surely
    appreciate a few extra back scratches.
  4. Break the Wishbone
    This is a classic! Everyone remembers fighting over who gets to tug on the wishbone.
    Instead of using a real bone, which could be a choking hazard for your pet, play tug-ofwar
    with your pet after dinner with their favorite bone-shaped toy! Whoever wins gets to
    have dessert first!
  5. Thanksgiving Dinner & Pie for your Pets!
    Nothing quite caps off Thanksgiving dinner like a slice of homemade pumpkin pie! Start
    another great Thanksgiving tradition with your pet by ordering them a Thanksgiving
    dinner and pumpkin pie from Treats Unleashed! Made by hand with all natural
    ingredients, these pies are a seasonal favorite.

Available as a whole pie (makes a great host gift for all the pets attending Thanksgiving), by the slice or as a dinner combo with a can of Merrick Thanksgiving Day Dinner for dogs or
cats. Thanksgiving dinners and pies have been a Treats Unleashed tradition for over 10 years. Bring home a new holiday tradition that starts around the food bowl and ends with full
tummies and happy pets.
