A Feast for Dogs – Holiday Favourites for your Furry Friends!

With fall and winter comes quite a few holidays. For Canada, we have Thanksgiving in October, and for our American friends, in November. We also get Christmas in December, and New Years in January. Now, we know every person and family celebrates holidays and special occasions in their own unique ways with their own fun traditions. It could be having parties, giving gifts, singing songs, going on trips – there is no incorrect way to spend those special days! But for us at Only One Treats, our favourite part of any holiday is the food!

When it comes to food on holidays, there really are no wrong answers. You want sloppy joes on Thanksgiving? Go for it! How about spaghetti on Christmas? Sounds delicious! Our go-to meal however is a classic roast dinner with all the fixin’s! Yumm, doesn’t that sound good? There really is no better smell than a turkey in the oven. And guess what? Your dog can smell it too! So why not treat them to an equally special meal made just for them?

In this blog, we want to show you some pet friendly alternatives to the traditional roast turkey meal, so your pup can be included in the feast without begging for scraps from the table (although they still might, we heard you make an amazing turkey)!


1. The bird is the word!

Who doesn’t love a juicy, hot piece of turkey on a chilly day? We know we do! And so do dogs. You can never roast a turkey without peering down and seeing Fido’s puppy dog eyes glued to the bird on the table, drool dripping from his lips. And although there’s nothing wrong with sneaking a piece or two, why not save the good stuff for the family, and give your dog something extra special? Here are some turkey “under-the-table-sneak-free” alternatives!

Turkey Jerky

2. A feast is nothing without the sides!
