For most people, the start of a new year can mean the beginning of a new routine. Many of us create a list of goals and resolutions as a way to improve ourselves. However, changes in lifestyle and goals aren’t just for people—the new year can also bring in the start of new resolutions for your puppy! If you’re not sure what goals to set for your fur-baby, don’t worry! Here’s a list of New Year’s resolutions for you and your puppy to follow.
Your fur-baby’s growth and strength is dependent on the nutrients they receive from the foods they eat. Avoid giving them table scraps, no matter how much they beg you with those sad eyes around the dinner table.
Instead, make it a priority to feed your pup the regular quality kibble, and for snacks, provide healthy options such as carrots and homemade treats.
Daily teeth brushing has a number of benefits. It eliminates tartar, prevents dental diseases, and keeps your pup’s mouth fresh and clean.
You should also include annual dental checkups for vet visits, which can help keep track of your puppy’s dental and oral health. This way, you and your pup can begin the new year with beautiful teeth.
It’s easy for humans and their fur-babies to gain a few pounds during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Losing that extra weight, however, can be a bit tricky. By incorporating your puppy in your daily routine, exercise becomes a fun way to shed pounds and bond with your furry family member.
There are a number of different exercise activities you and your pup can do, including hiking and kayaking. You can also meet up with other like-minded puppy owners to join you and your puppy for an exciting time!
Your pup doesn’t need to be a troublemaker to take some training or obedience classes. Apart from serving as a fun challenge, obedience classes can help you and your fur-baby build a stronger bond.
Puppies love being with their owners. They want their undivided love and attention—all day, if possible! Unfortunately, with our jobs and other obligations, it’s difficult to indulge in your fur-baby’s wants.
In the new year, take some time to spend some quality time with your puppy. Whether it’s taking long walks, cuddle sessions or binge-watching a Netflix original together, being at your pup’s side promotes health and happiness for the both of you.
You don’t need to take them on a long road trip or fly out of the country. When it comes to your pup, an adventure can be anything. A simple trip to the local pet store to interact with other pets and enjoy new sights can be a fun adventure for your puppy.
You can also walk your pup on a hiking trail, dine at a dog-friendly restaurant, or take a trip to a beach that’s open to dogs.
The new year is a time for self-improvement and reinvention for you and your pup. By setting healthy goals and having your pup with you, you can begin the year on the right foot!
