December is here! That means snow, cold weather, the holidays, and time with the family. As a pet sitting business owner, it also means that you’re gearing up for the busiest month of the year. Many clients will be taking trips out of town for Christmas and New Years, which means that you will have a full plate with pet sits and dog walks. It’s important to make sure that your website is up to date and ranking on Google during the holiday season since many pet owners will be scouring the Internet trying to find the perfect pet care solution! Without further ado, here are some December pet sitting blog ideas:
4 December Pet Sitting Blog Ideas
1. Holidays – Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, New Years, & More!
It’s very common that a great portion of your clients will go out of town for Christmas & for New Years. After all, it’s one of the busiest times of the year for the airports. There will be tons of people in your area googling flights, hotels, and pet care – there’s where you come in! To make sure they can find you, here’s some examples of holiday-themed blogs you can write:
- What Should I Get My Dog/Cat For Christmas?
- Should I Include My Dog/Cat On My Holiday Card?
- 10 Easy Dog-Friendly Christmas Treats
- New Years Resolution From The Dog/Cat, To You
The list goes on and on!
2. Baby, It’s Cold Outside!
Weather is a great topic to write about, because many pet owners are not too sure how to care for their pets in extreme weather. Since December is very cold and snowy, write some blogs educating your clients on how they can care for their pets during the Winter season:
- 5 Ways To Exercise With My Dog When It’s Too Cold Outside
- 4 Games To Play With My Dog In The Snow
- Can My Dog Get Sick From Being Outside In The Cold?
- Is It Possible For My Dog To Get Frostbite?
These are just a few ideas, but if you think on it a little while I am sure you’ll come up with more interesting questions worth answering! If you have a good question, research it and then blog about it!
3. Winter Games & Activities
Admittedly, there’s not a whole lot of games that dogs can play outside in freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall (at least not ones that are very long!). But don’t let this stop you from writing about other activities pet owners can do with their animals indoors while they’re waiting for the weather to warm up!
Try searching the Internet for games that dogs and their owners can play in the snow, such as hide-n-go seek with a treat. Compile a list! Or, write about some indoor activities pet owners can engage in with their dogs and cats such as snuggling, watching movies, playing with indoor toys, taking naps, and more.
Are there restaurants in your area that are pet friendly? Make a list, describe each one, and use it as a blog! You can also do this for hiking/walking trails and stores (preferably ones with holiday bargains!)
4. Don’t Forget About The Pet Educational Themes Of The Month
There are only a couple of themes for December but they are still worth considering writing about:
- National Cat Lover’s Month – Write a blog on why cats are so loved!
- National Mutt Day (December 2nd) – Write a blog on why mutts are so loved!
I hope these December pet sitting blog ideas are helpful to you and are able to give you some inspiration. If you are a pet sitting business that DOESN’T have a blog – it’s never too late to start.
