A very happy dog with Santa

We’re All About Dogs this Christmas.

Yes it’s that time of year again. This Christmas we’re All About Dogs here at Woodfarm Barns.

Right now as I type millions of people all around the world are getting ready to celebrate Christmas, and for many it’s All About Dogs.

The mid-winter festival means many different things to different people. But for most people who celebrate it, one of the key aspects is spending time with our family and loved ones. For many of us that includes our four-legged friends. Thousands of dog owners all around the UK consider their K9 companion to be a member of the family. (Many even prefer their pawed family members! But shhh, don’t tell anyone!)

For this reason we’re taking a little time this year to be All About Dogs this Christmas.

There are so many ways we can include our beloved pooches in our family Christmas.

– Cook them something special

If you’re anything like me then food is a major highlight of the holiday season for you. It can be the same for your dog.

Make them something special to eat and bring holiday cheer to their tummies.

A quick Google search (other search engines are available!) will provide you will hundreds of dog friendly recipes for the festive season. However we found some good ones on ‘I Heart Dogs’.

– Give them their own stocking

We all know our dog’s favourite treats. Why not fill a stocking with them for Christmas morning?

After all, Christmas is a time for giving and they give us so much all year round.

– Keep them with you

Simple, but it’s the most important.

Off to see the Christmas lights in town? Take your K9 friend with you. They’ll enjoy the lights too.

Visiting relatives? Going away for a Christmas vacation? Don’t leave your four-legged family members behind. Take them with you if you can.

We’re fully booked this Christmas but our dog friendly cottages are available all year round. After all a dog is for life, not just for Christmas (sorry, couldn’t resist that corny joke, what’s wrong with me?!) and we’re All About Dogs 365 days of the year.

Fancy an escape to a dog friendly holiday cottage? You can check our availability here.
