    Angry Dogs and Trees

    Hi, does anyone have trouble with their tree ornaments and their dogs? We have a mini tree with plastic ornaments and the dog takes them off and plays with them and chew on them.

    That sounds cute to me, However we had a similiar issue with a Kitten a few years ago. We ended up having to do the old squirt bottle trick to stop it.

    How old is your dog?
    Because, mine, for the first 1-2 years used to sleep inside the manger, after having eaten 3 Kings and Jesus...

    Suddenly, when he turned 2, he calmed down...

    I have a 3 year old bassett hound.

    He has gotten a lot better at not playing with the ornaments over the last couple of years.

    Now he is just too lazy to play with em

    My guy is 9 believe it or not. He's a mini-poodle and still full of energy. Thankfully he doesn't touch the main tree with the breakable ornaments.

    Mine, after becoming 2 years old, used to sleep at night near the tree.. (he has died)
    But I have to say that until he gets 2, he really broke my nerves!!

    Have you tried leaving him alone home with the tree?

    I have a bassett hound mix who loves to sleep under the tree before we put presents under it. He is the cutest little present I could ask for. but my dogs never messed with our trees.
    Wishing you many hot cocoa mornings and firesky nights throughout the new year!

    We havent left him alone with the tree yet. May try that this year.

    By Christmas, my child should be starting to crawl, so the dog wont be the only thing I fear getting into the tree! lol
