New Year's Resolutions to Make as a Pet Owner
10 New Year's Resolutions Every Pet Parent Should Consider in 2017
1. Take More Long Walks
There’s nothing quite like a walk to put things into perspective — and having your beloved dog at your side only makes it better. Plus, on rainy days or when you just don’t want to get out of bed, a little whimper and a nudging snout are excellent motivation. This year, let’s all pledge to take more long walks with our dogs. It’ll make us healthier, it'll improve our bond with our best friends, and it’s a relaxing way to get fit.
2. Get Active in the Kitchen
It seems like every day there’s a new app making it easier to order in — but this year, let’s spend a little more time getting creative in the kitchen. With a few simple ingredients you likely have on hand, you can whip up a batch of dog-friendly cookies in no time.
3. Go on More Adventures
Feeling a little uninspired? Trapped in your Netflix and takeout routine? There’s no better encouragement to get out there and explore than your dog’s wagging tail at the front door. Look up dog-friendly hiking trails, find a nearby dog-friendly happy hour (that’s a “yappy hour” for you newbies), or break up your walk routine and check out a new neighborhood together. Get out there and explore the city with your dog at your side!
