    DefaultKeeping Christmas gifts safe from dogs

    I have what I think is a good suggestion for keeping the Christmas presents safe from curious dogs (and especially puppies). We did this last year and loved it, so we're doing it again:

    Instead of putting the presents under the tree, especially if you can't separate your tree and your pups, arrange the presents on top of your kitchen cabinets. It saves a ton of worry, and it actually looks very festive!

    Several ways we have used over the years.
    ~ We placed the tree in an old fashioned wood playpen on a small table, decorated the top rail as well and placed the gifts into the playpen.
    ~ set bookshelves on either side of the tree and put the gifts on the shelving.
    ~ Used gates to make a mini fence around tree/gift area.

    Nice! My cabinets don't have tops - they butt right up to the soffit!

    Our compromise is to put the smaller presents in the branches of the trees.

    She is really good about leaving the big ones alone but those mouth size ones are so tempting to carry around.

    Ooo, that's a good idea!
