Start The New Year With Your Dog On The Right Foot
Are you prepared to have a great year with your dog? With the upcoming New Year comes another opportunity for you to strengthen the bond and love between you and your dog. In addition to fortifying the bond, you can also make them happier and healthier. We’ve come up with a few pointers to start the new year with your dog on the right foot.
Start With A Vet Check-Up
Vet check-ups can pinpoint any health problems you did not know about as well as helpful advice to assist with managing your dog. These health assessments can provide an opportunity to accurately weigh your dog, keep your pup’s vaccinations up-to-date, and put your mind at ease about the potential issues. The vet will examine your dog for potential health problems and you will be able to take action before it becomes serious.
Healthy Food for Your Dog
Once you know your dog’s health is in good order, you can help to maintain their level of health by feeding them healthy food. Feeding your dog with a diet that is rich in protein with many healthy ingredients like our Hypro Premium kibble is a perfect way to energise them. Our dog food is enriched with vitamins, minerals and healthy oils. We proudly formulate our kibble from Australian-sourced ingredients with no grains or gluten included. A high-quality diet throughout the year will minimise the chances of your dog’s health deteriorating and needing to go to a vet.
Bathing and Grooming
Start the fresh year by helping your dog feel fresh with a bath and a groom. Bathing your dog will help to keep your dog’s skin and coat healthy as well as giving it a bit of shine. Your pooch will also be more pleasant to be around as they won’t have any unpleasant smells. Grooming your dog should be done more frequently than bathing and will also remove dead hair and dirt from their coat.
New Routes and Walking Routine
Start the year with a fresh walking route so they will experience new environments and situations. It will also keep them engaged since walking the same route can become too repetitive. Opt for some new walking routine or by plotting out a few different circuits or trying out an entirely new route. By switching things up for your dog, they will remain engaged on their walk. The new route will introduce them to new environments and potentially new pet friends too.
The beginning of a new year presents an opportunity for you to make some positive changes with your dog and further strengthen your bond with them. Use our tips to ensure that you start the new year with your dog on the right foot.
