When growing up with the family when events or special times were experienced it was always caught int he pictures.

At the Toronto Christmas Pet Show we also want this special event memorialized for you and your family pet members for many years to come. Be sure to stop and see Pierre from Freeze Frame Foto at the Santa booth as our Santa is the pet Santa. Santa is all about the pets whether they are small, have scales, large or are the out of the box pets. They all warm up to him fast and share their wants for the holidays. Oh ya throw the whole family in there for a complete holiday picture.

If the spontaneous photo memoirs is not for you and would like some classic formal holiday portrait style photos, don't sweat it the Toronto Christmas Pet Show elves are ensuring we got that covered as well. Drop in to see Kevin from Off The Leash who is in the holiday spirit gifting 15 studio style photography all weekend. Thats right a professional studio photo shoot on site. Bring the pets dressed up, bring the kids to use as props with the pets and flashes poppin everywhere!

All of our events are all about bringing together the pets and their families closer. By presenting two of the best pet photographers the Toronto Christmas Pet Show will see to it that this exciting weekend will never be forgotten. - Grant

4 ways to include your pets in Christmas fun

Updated: November 7, 2016, 11:50 am Author: CPE Staff

1. Take a pet-friendly vacation

If you're going away for a long trip, think about booking a hotel or house that is pet-friendly. That way, you don't have to leave your pets at home with a sitter or board them over the holidays.
If you're flying, many airlines allow you to bring pets for an extra fee, which probably won't be more than the cost of boarding them for a week or longer. If you're renting a car, check with the rental car company to see what their pet policies allow, and what liabilities you risk if your pet makes a mess.

2. Include them in your Christmas photos

If you send out Christmas photos or cards, be sure to include your pets in the portrait. You can hold the dog or cat in your lap while the photographer snaps the shot so they can be part of your family Christmas. You can also use the photo in a tree ornament and feature your pet in your home as well.

3. Dress them up in holiday outfits

There are plenty of holiday-themed sweaters, collars, tags and other accessories available for your pets to wear. Give them a little splash of colour by dressing your dog in a Christmas sweater or a cat in a bright red collar with bells.
If you want, you could even make your own addition to their collar by adding red and green ribbons. You could also go all out and buy one of the holiday-themed pet costumes for sale at your local pet shop.

4. Buy them gifts

Get each of your pets a stocking and stuff it with trinkets and snacks they like. Then, wrap up a gift or two and put them under the tree for a family member to open for the pet in the morning. They'll be excited to be included in the family plans and enjoy the extra treats, just like the rest of the family.

These are just a few ways to include your family pet in your Christmas activities. Remember, they are part of the family too. Including them in things like pictures and gift-giving makes the whole family happy and can create some great new traditions for years to come.
