Tips

  • Add more accents to your Milk-Bone reindeer, such as studs, a big smile, or perhaps larger antlers.
  • Make all the reindeer that Santa has and line them all together. Connect them to an ornamental sleigh with gold cord or chain.
  • Try to keep the reindeer Milk-Bones away from your dogs.
