New Year’s Resolutions can be motivating, but sometimes they are just a big pain. Lose weight? Eat more vegetables? Clean out your garage? Blech. There are so many other things you can resolve to do that will not only benefit you but also your pet. Consider your options, and your pup will likely thank you with lots of love and kisses!
Make a Paw-sitive Change
There are some really easy and fun resolutions you could make that will positively impact both your life and the life of your pets:
You don’t have to go from zero to 60 here. Just take it up a notch from what you’re currently doing. If your pup is fairly sedentary, give her a new toy that she can play with and chase around a little. Or if you’re already pretty active with your pooch, consider planning an exciting outing to one of Colorado’s many pet-friendly hiking trails.
Your dog may be in a food rut. Perhaps add some fun new snacks like carrots (yay for veggies!) or peanut butter in a Kong (protein!) to mix things up a bit. Or go even further and find a new recipe for dog treats that will truly make your dog’s day, like these homemade peanut butter and pumpkin dog treats. Always consider speaking with your veterinarian before making any major diet changes.
Focus on maintaining health
Speaking of your veterinarian . . . while your pup may not be happy to hear this, consistent checkups are key to your pet’s health. Be sure to schedule their next exam and stay on top of all of their vaccinations. A friendly reminder that all BNB guests must be current on their rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccines.
Learn something new
Learning a new trick or skill is a fun way to keep your dog content, young, and mentally sharp. Plus, practicing tricks can be a great way for you to spend time together and strengthen your bond. Consider adding Enrichment activity sessions at BNB, and you’ll both have a ton of new tricks to pick from that will help you achieve all of those goals.
