It’s ugly sweater season! Here at Petland Kansas City, we love Thanksgiving and the puppy foods and fashion that go with it!
From homemade doggy treats to the perfect “ugly” sweater for puppies, this article will list fun ways to make Thanksgiving special for you and your new puppy.
UGLY SWEATERS FOR DOGS & PUPPIES
Include your resident dogs and new puppy in ugly sweater season! Thanksgiving kicks off the joy of the holiday season. Whether you plan to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or another beloved holiday next month, we guarantee you that there’s an ugly sweater to match the mood! Puppy-size Thanksgiving sweaters bring humor and even more joy to this national day of gratitude. Our favorite site for puppy holiday sweaters is Tipsy Elves.
THANKSGIVING DOG TREATS
Thanksgiving is all about gratitude for this wonderful nation of freedom we all enjoy! And it’s also totally about delicious food! Thanksgiving Day turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie, and other classic dishes make this holiday full of family traditions. But Grandma’s creamed onions will definitely harm your dog. There are many human foods that are not safe for dogs and puppies.
This Thanksgiving, make your own homemade dog treats! By whipping up special foods for your puppy to eat on the big day, you can provide healthy options. Your puppy won’t beg or whine at the dinner table if he’s already happy with his homemade biscuit or chewy dog bone!

THANKSGIVING PUPPY SAFETY TIPS
The #1 safety tip for puppies you need to know is the importance of keeping poisonous and toxic foods away from your dog. Many human foods that are perfectly healthy can have disastrous effects on puppies.
For your quick reference, the following is a list of poisonous foods that you should never let your puppy eat. Keep these foods and ingredients out of paw’s reach. And if you’re hosting a Thanksgiving dinner, we recommend that you ask your guests not to feed your puppy table scraps.
- Alcohol of any kind
- Apple pie
- Artificial sweeteners, especially Xylitol
- Banana leafs
- Bread or pizza dough
- Chili peppers
- Corn husk
- Dairy, especially whipped cream
- Fried foods
- Grapes or raisins
- Green bean casserole
- Hot sauce
- Jelly and jams
- Mac and cheese
- Nuts, including macadamia nuts and walnuts
- Pumpkin pie
- Sour cream
If you suspect your puppy has ingested any of the foods above, take him to the veterinarian immediately.
We also recommend that prior to your Thanksgiving day festivities, you prepare a quiet, safe room for your puppy. This room should be tucked “away from the action.” Prepare the room with all of your puppy’s favorite toys, stuffed animals, and comforts. This includes water, pee pads, and other necessities. If and when your Thanksgiving gathering becomes loud or “too exciting” for you puppy, you can put him in his cozy room to rest.
