Pet-Friendly New Year’s Goals For You and Your Dogs

 

Choose Healthy Food and Treats for Dogs

Make it a goal to get your pet’s diet on the right track this year with pet food that is tailor-made to his or her age and size and healthy dog treats that are good for your dogs. Different dogs need different types of food and nutrition for their various stages of life. For example, puppies need nutrients to help them grow, and elderly dogs need different nutrients to ensure healthy skin and strong bones.

Try a New Activity With Your Pet

Dog Yoga? Weekend Warriors? Spice up your (and your pup’s) exercise routine by trying some new activities you can enjoy together. It’s easier than ever for people to incorporate a pet into a new exercise routine. It’s also a great way to bond, it’ll get you both out of the house, and both you and your pet will reap the rewards of healthy physical activity. Meetup groups are a great way to find like-minded pet owners to join you in your exercise routine.

Keep Up-to-Date With Health Checkups

Making it a goal to keep your regular health physicals and dental visits is something we all strive for. Starting now, make it a goal to strive for regular checkups with your pets. The best way to do this? Get out your calendar now and write down reminders for the entire year. Since the frequency for checkups vary, your veterinarian can help you with the best schedule for your dog’s needs.

Resolve to Make Life Fun and Enriching for Your Pets

Keeping things fresh and fun should be the biggest goal to have in the New Year. After all, what is life if it is not full of fun? Whether it is a new training class, a social group with other dogs, or a weekend playgroup at the local dog park, keeping things fresh and enriching should be a priority for your dogs as well.

Remember, ensuring your pups have fun, stay active, and continue to learn this year will keep them healthier and happier for years to come.
