I Have To Hide My Christmas Treats!

December 24, 2010 11:40 am

I own beagles.. two of them. There is not a snowballs chance in h-e-double hockey sticks that they are going to just sit next to the fireplace and allow a stocking full of treats to not be devoured if left alone for 30 seconds (let alone the 4 hours at a time they’re home alone for during week days)… so I have to hide my Christmas treats for them. But, I do have a few tips for you to make it a bit easier.

a) Last minute shop!! They can’t get at something they can’t get to! If you leave it till the last few days before Christmas, they only have a few days to sniff out those treats – but even that said….

b) Hide them high! Top of the closet would be the perfect spot and that’s where I have mine hidden this year – I mean, they don’t know what holiday it is.. they just know the familiar scent of dog treats and want them. So I put them high and they’re not able to get at em!

c) Keep the packaging on. I know most people do this anyhow, but sometimes the packaging can actually keep the scent of new treats restricted to the package itself – so they can’t smell anything. (Note: not my beagles.. they’re retarded at sniffing this stuff out).

d) Do not hide them with other presents – if for some strange reason, the pets DO find the treats and they are hidden with that golden ring you purchased for your sweety – well, chances are your pet is going to be so excited to eat the treats that your precious gift to your loved one may be devoured as well – and don’t think any home or car insurance company is going to help you if that happens.

It’s pretty easy to keep the presents away from your pets until Santa arrives – cuz there’s nothing cuter than watching them unwrap a gift that is actually theirs anyhow!
