The New Year is upon us and that means it’s time to start thinking about resolutions, whether that is improving your health or trying something different. There are always ways to incorporate your canine friend into your promises this time for 2018. And who knows, maybe your pup has goals of their own! Here’s a list of New Year’s resolutions for dog people!
Learn new tricks
Embrace the New Year and teach your pet new tricks can be great for stimulating their brain, keeping their mind and body active, and show off your newfound skills to friends
Maintain a healthy weight
Make your pup’s health one of your biggest priorities going into the New Year. Part of this involved taking your dog for one long walk every day, which not only will help him exercise, it will also allow for some bonding time for the two of you. Also try to measure out every meal for your pup since food intake is as important as exercise in terms of the key to losing weight. Eyeballing your pet’s daily intake usually result in overfeeding and this in turn can lead to weight gain. So try to use a measure cup to ensure your pet gets just the right amount of food. It is also a good idea to feed your dog two meals a day instead of one.
Make time to play
It’s easy to get distracted by all of the important events going on, but don’t forget that every time you head out for a dinner with friends, you are leaving your canine friend behind. Your pup undoubtedly loves you and loves spending time playing with you. Make it a priority with them more in 2018. Devote some time snuggling and playing with your pup. It will give keep you and your pet entertained. More playtime can also help your pet stay healthy and make your bind even stronger.
Update their tag
Over the course of a year, a lot can change — people move, get new phone numbers, and forget to update their pet’s tags. Often they only remember once the pet is lost. No pet owner ever wants to be in a situation where their pet has wandered away. If any of your contact information has changed in 2017, don’t wait — update their tags and microchip information today! It’s the best way to ensure a lost pet makes their way safely home.
Set up play dates
Resolve to bring more joy into your pet’s life in 2018. One easy way is by setting up play dates. Interactions with other animals will help them build positive relationship which in turn helps them avoid altercations in the future. Call up a friend with a similar size pet or just bring your pup to a nearby park to meet with new friends.
