Deck the halls with this super-simple DIY treat bag using Christmas stockings! Easy as 1-2-3!Anyone who knows me knows I am not artsy-craftsy, and I have always traveled during the holidays, so this is a unique opportunity for me to actually do something at home for the holidays. With that in mind, the non-artsy-craftsy part of me was stumped when presented with the challenge of creating a treat container for this project. Then, I saw our Christmas stockings in my holiday dog decoration drawer, et voila! An idea! As easy as 1-2-3, and anyone can do it... artsy or not! 

Step 1: Locate Your Christmas Stockings and Decorations
Because we all know where our dog Christmas decorations are kept, go to that place, and retrieve one stocking per dog. In my case, two dogs... so, two stockings. Obviously, you can use one dog stocking for your whole pack, if you want.

Cooper's stocking. It says "Santa's my gnomie" lol

Step 2: Get yourself some BLUE Santa Snacks® at your local pet food provider
BLUE Santa Snacks holiday dog biscuits are available at Target, Meijer, Kroger, PetSmart, Chewy and your regional retailers.  These baked crunchy dog treats are packaged in an 8-ounce resealable bag, and typically cost $5.99 per bag. Blue Buffalo Santa Snacks are a great way to share the holiday season with your furry friend. These holiday dog treats make great dog stocking stuffers, as you'll soon see, and the ingredients feature holiday spices like cinnamon and wholesome oatmeal, barley, pumpkin and flax seed.


I'm not sure if I'm naughty or nice.....
But... can I have one of those? Pweeze?


Step 3: Fill stockings with BLUE Santa Snacks treats
These Blue Buffalo crunchy dog treats are made in such cute shapes! I love teasing my dogs with "What shape do you want today?" questions, and I try to give them both the same shape so everything is "even". The snacks are in the shape of stars, gingerbread men, and Christmas trees. These snacks are crunchy and good-sized. Not too big, not too small, but big enough where they are used only as a special treat around here. You just can't help having fun with these treats.

Wag that tail for some BLUE Santa Snacks!


Hang the stockings out of your dog's reach -- and don't open 'til Christmas! Well, ok, maybe Thanksgiving. Who can resist these treats? I know my dogs go nuts for these snacks, and I can't wait to put up our dog Christmas decorations and feed them a Santa Snack or two while we're decorating the house. For the first time in many years, I'm going to be home for the holidays. Usually, I travel every year. But this year is being devoted to my dogs and cats and grandkids. So, I'm staying put. More time with the hounds at home means more treat time, and let's hope we don't gain too much weight snacking on holiday goodies.

BONUS FUN FACT: 
Where did Blue Buffalo's name come from? The founders of Blue Buffalo, the Bishop family, had a dog named BLUE that unfortunately developed cancer. The family developed a special natural pet food formula with their veterinarian and an animal nutritionist (Blue Life Protection Formula). That natural pet food became the number-one selling in the U.S. and underscored Blue Buffalo's commitment to Pet Cancer research and awareness. Learn more about the Blue Buffalo story here
