New Years Resolution – for your dog

The new year is a time when many people make New Years Resolutions to exercise more, lose weight, or do other things they want to accomplish to make improvements in their lives. Whether or not you are a regular resolution maker, now might be a good time to make a resolution regarding your dog.

Is there something you’ve wanted to accomplish but haven’t gotten around to it yet? Did you keep telling yourself you wanted to spend more time training your dog? Did you plan to have a better trained dog? Did you discover over the holidays that your dog was not as well-behaved with company as you’d hoped? Has your dog been gaining weight because he or she is not getting enough exercise and eating too much? Have you thought about wanting to do something new with your dog to have more fun for both of you?

Now is the time to resolve to get more training, take your dog on more walks, or do any of those other things you keep saying you should do but haven’t committed to yet. Some of us don’t commit to things as easily if we’re trying to do it on our own. But we are much better at sticking to our resolutions if we work at it with someone else.

Let’s say you wish your dog were better trained. Signing up for a group class might be a good choice so that you know you have to show up each week and work with the same group of people.

Let’s say you are interested in learning something new with your dog. If you have something specific in mind, look up local options. If you’re not sure what you want to do, look at our group classes or look up dog sports or activities online for some ideas. Or feel free to call me to discuss some ideas. The key is to take that first step to get yourself committed to doing something.

I’d love to hear your resolutions. What are you going to resolve to do with your dog this year?
