Christmas shoppers go wild for pet-friendly tree that helps keep dogs and children safe

A "pet-friendly" Christmas tree is helping to keep dogs and little ones safe this festive season. The tree, stocked by Argos, has decorations starting halfway up, keeping them out of reach from curious hands and feline friends.

Not only does it save you the hassle of re-decorating your tree every few minutes, but it also keeps your pets safe from broken baubles and damaged lights. Shoppers are loving this clever "pet-friendly" alternative, saying their pets haven't "touched the tree" since they put it up.

The Habitat 6ft Half Parasol Christmas Tree is available at Argos for £36.66. It's not just great for pet owners, but also for those with small children or limited space.

Over 200 people have rated this Christmas tree five stars on Argos, saying it is the perfect way to keep pesky paws away from decorations.

One shopper said: "I bought 2 of these to brighten up my dining room without the feeling of taking up too much room with a floor to ceiling bushy tree. They were a perfect choice ! All my guests complimented me on them & loved the idea of these little parasol trees being used as an alternative. I chose not to load them with decorative items & kept it simple with lights & a few bits.

"The quality was good for the price & will see many years. The foliage was denser than what I expected, so I was pleasantly surprised with that feature. 3 little twigs were snapped off & found in the packaging box, but honestly, it didn't make a big difference & nothing gorilla tape couldn't fix without too much effort, even if I'd binned them it wouldn't have been noticed in the overall effect. For the reduced sale price, I was delighted with my purchase overall."

A second commented: "Habitat 6ft half parasol tree (green). Such a brilliant idea. Our daughter and granddaughter have moved back home and the design of the tree doesn't infringe on our granddaughter's play space."

The Habitat Half Parasol Christmas Tree is also a big hit with cat owners – especially those who haven't been able to have a tree for years since owning a pet. "It's been over six years since I last had a tree because of my naughty cat who loves to climb them. This one has been up a few days and she's not shown an interest in it at all like she does with a normal tree," said one happy user.

A second cat owner said: "We bought this after our new kitten damaged our big tree by constantly climbing up it last year. I’d never seen a tree like this before, so didn’t know what to expect, but it’s really lovely! It’s bigger than it looks in the advert and is a perfect shape. We put 200 lights on it. Best of all, our cat hasn’t even looked at it – result!"

For those who prefer flocked trees, Argos have the Habitat 6ft Snowy Half Design Christmas Tree for £43.33, and JD Williams have reduced the Aspen Half Flocked Christmas Tree from £61 to £39.

If you have no floor room for a Christmas tree this year, the Homebase Hanging Wooden Light Up Christmas Tree Sash with Red Berries is £30 and shoppers say, "We got this tree because we had no room for a big tree. Super impressed with the quality and look comes with lights."
