2016 – New You & New Pet Activities
This may sound like one for pet owners, but pet obesity is becoming more and more common.
Getting your four-legged friend on a regular exercise regimen will go a long way in improving their health in the upcoming year.
Enjoy The Indoors
Sometimes the weather just doesn’t cooperate and we are stuck indoors. When this happens, play a small game of fetch or tug of war with your pet. It will lead to a little bit of exercise for them and a nice enjoyable bonding experience also.
Whether your dog is well-behaved or not, it won’t hurt to take a couple minutes a day and go over with them some of the previous training they have learned. Doing this will mentally stimulate your pet and give them a sense of fulfillment for remembering their training and commands.
Help To Make Others Happy
Animal-Assisted Activities and Therapy are a great way to give back. After getting your dog trained, you will be able to take them to visit with people who are sick or elderly and help cheer them up.
