New Year’s resolutions for a dog
Creating New Year’s resolutions is a common ritual for many of us as the new year is around the corner but why not involve our canine companions and create resolutions for your dog? As with humans, the new year presents a fresh start for our pets and creating New Year’s resolutions for a dog gives them a fun challenge and helps them strive towards a happier and healthier life.
Check out the top four resolutions for you and your furry friend so you can both have a paw-some year ahead.
Resolution #1: Eat Healthy
Eating healthier is potentially the most common resolution because nutrition plays an integral role in our health and the same applies to our four-legged friends. Help your dog eat healthier with our Hypro Premium kibble which is specifically designed to enhance their health. We only use nutritious ingredients and real meats from Australian farms to create a gourmet kibble with a delightful taste that dogs love. Feeding your dog with the right food is the first step to achieving this goal but the other part of the formula is to feed them the right amount of food. Our product pages have a feeding guide that recommends a serving size based on your dog’s weight so we have taken out the guesswork.
Resolution #2: Stay Active
Exercise has so many benefits for our canine companions, so it is a good idea to maintain or slowly increase their activity in the new year. Physical activity not only has physical benefits, but it also improves their behaviour inside the house. The required exercise level does vary between age, breed and energy levels but as a general guideline, you should aim to have your dog exercising for 30 minutes on most days of the week. Keeping your dog active will also help them sleep at night and minimise weight gain.
Resolution #3: Make A New Dog Friend
Friends provide a new source of happiness and a play partner for dogs so it may be time to introduce them to a new dog friend. Find a local dog park and allow your dog to play and mingle with the other dogs. Just like with humans, friendships can’t be forced, and some dog breeds are less social and more independent so it is important to keep that in mind.
Resolution #4: New Games for Playtime
Teaching your dog to play a new game will make playtime more fun and less repetitive. New games will also stimulate their mind and help them stay active. From flirt hole, hide and seek, tug of war, frisbee, chasing bubbles, water games to digging box games, you can enjoy with them in several ways.
Creating a few New Year’s resolutions for your pet will give them a fun challenge and strengthen your bond with them as you work on them together.
