With the year 2017 just starting, there are so many opportunities for you and your pet to really make the most of the New Year. It’s a chance to make memories, and maybe even make some lifestyle changes yourself! Here are five, easy-to-implement resolutions for you and your pet!
Make self-care a priority: There are many ways that you can implement a healthy lifestyle for your pet. A change in diet can do a lot of good, and making oral hygiene a priority will keep their teeth pearly white and strong. Both of these will also make your veterinarian very happy and your visits short. These changes work well for humans too!
Exercise daily: Exercising daily has great health benefits for both you and your pet. Whether it’s a run together or a casual walk in the park, putting fitness into a regular routine will keep your pet at a healthy weight and agile for years to come! At the Animal Care Clinic, agility, rehabilitation, and weight loss programs are available to get your pet back on track!
Expand your social circles: Letting your pet socialize with other pets is a great way to let them work off some of their energy and have entertaining interactions with other animals. They’re also great conversation starters and party guests for friends of old and new for you!
Learn some new tricks: Teaching your pets new tricks is a great way to bond while also allowing yourself to focus on patience, hard-work, communication, and commitment. Positive reinforcement helps shape their behavior and aids in teaching them obedience while also developing a strong bond.
Spend more time with loved ones: Not only is it important to build a strong bond with your pet, but it’s also beneficial to be surrounded by people who are full of love and compassion. It allows your pet to have social interactions with a plethora of people – that much love and attention can turn a regular day into a spectacular one.
