“New Years Resolutions That Can Make This Year The Best Year Ever For Your Pet”
Hello everyone, it’s Robert Semrow, your pet world insider here with this weeks Animal Radio List – New Years Resolutions That Can Make This Year The Best Year Ever For Your Pet – The new year is upon us and it’s time to make some resolutions, not only for ourselves, but also for our pets. And unlike the one’s I make for myself which seem to last for a month or so, the resolutions I make for my pets are something I’m much more committed to.
So, where to start, for me it all starts with knowledge. So, my first resolution is that I’m going to learn more about issues that impact my pets. I’m going to accomplish this by attending a seminar, taking a course or reading a book for a true expert in the field that will benefit my pets. It might be learning a new training technique, a health issue I know my pets are susceptible to, maybe learning about nutrition or even keep it as simple as learning to read a pet food label… Ok, maybe that’s not so simple, but I know that if I learn something actionable and put it to use, I’m going to improve my pets lives.
My second resolution is to Commit to special time with each pet I have once a week. So often the time we spend together is at an event, a dog park or shared amongst family members. So, this year, I am going to make sure that Sugar, Zoey, Hatch and Faith all get their own focused time with me on a weekly basis. Each of them is individually special to me and this year, I’m going to commit time to that unique special bond.
My next resolution is to find a new activity that I can do with my dogs Sugar and Zoey. We are all so busy that we find ourselves getting into a routine that can become stale. This year, I’m going to find a new activity we can participate in, maybe it will be agility, dock jumping, disc dogs, flyball, or some other activity that excites and invigorates Sugar and Zoey. Most dogs need mental and physical stimulation to be satiated. These activities are also great ways for me to bond with them as well.
What’s a New Years Resolutions list without a reference to weight, exercise and health right? So this year, I’m going to make the resolution to feed my pets healthier foods, extend our exercise sessions by 5 additional minutes a day and to continue my use of supplements to help provide healthy boosts to their aging bodies. As they get older, their needs change and I want to make sure I’m providing their bodies and minds with the proper nutrition and exercise to keep them healthy for many more new years resolutions to come.
As with any resolution, it’s only as good as the effort I put forth. I know my pets will do their part, so these resolutions are me to accomplish. Are you making New year’s resolutions for your pets, if so we’d love to hear your them. Post them to our Animal Radio Facebook page and let’s keep each other on track throughout the year.
