Are you making resolutions this year? The start of a brand new year is a great time to revisit our personal priorities, and set new goals for the coming 12 months. If you have a dog, Fido will of course be right there with you as you make your resolutions. But if your canine buddy could make his own resolutions, what do you think they would be? A McHenry, IL vet lists some cute possibilities below.
Defeat The Vacuum Cleaner
As far as Fido is concerned, the vacuum cleaner is a big, scary robot that wants to destroy everything. Offer your furry buddy a treat once you’ve finished vacuuming.
Go For More Car Rides
Does your furry pal jump for joy when you tell him it’s time for a car ride? This little happy dance can be super cute! Just be sure to put your dog’s safety first. Keep Fido crated for travel: it’s much too dangerous for him to be loose in the car.
Master Begging Skills
Fido is pretty good at getting us to fork over yummy snacks, but he may want to improve his acting skills even more in the coming months. Don’t give in: begging is bad doggy manners, and it’s one of the main reasons so many pooches are overweight.
Avoid Baths At All Costs
Does your pup bolt for his favorite hiding spot when he hears the word Bath? Keeping Fido clean and well-groomed is very important to his health and well-being. Your cute pet may not see it that way, however. To help your dog overcome his dislike of bath time, make a habit of calling him into the bathroom, giving him a treat, and letting him go.
Run! Jump! Pounce!
Fido is super cute when he is feeling frisky! Playing is actually great for dogs: it offers them beneficial mental stimulation, beats the bored-doggy blues, and gets them moving. Indulge your pet’s adorable playtime requests!
Get Petted More
Dogs have some pretty adorable ways of getting our attention. Your pooch may nudge your head with his head when he wants ear scritches, or flop over in front of you to request belly rubs. Fido may very well want even more attention in 2017!
