The holidays are fast approaching, and you’re likely thinking about your resolutions for the new year. But what about your furry friend? Here are 7 manageable resolutions that you can make to keep you and your dog happy and healthy throughout the year.
There is an endless variety of costumes available for your pooch, from hot dog costumes for Dachshunds to princess dresses for Chihuahuas to superhero costumes for Border Collies—this is the chance for your pup to play dress-up! You can even make a doggie costume yourself with a little imagination. If you have two dogs, try dressing them up as a bride and groom – a basic veil and white dress for the bride and a tuxedo for the groom will have passersby throwing kibble and wishing luck to the happy couple. And Pugs seem to look funny in any costume, but a Pug in a pink tutu is a slam-dunk for Halloween hilarity!
Half the fun of having dogs in our lives is sharing various activities with them, including play dates at the dog park, camping, and hiking. Most dogs have lots of physical and mental energy—even saying the word “outside” can send them into a tail-wagging tizzy—so you’ll want to channel that energy into safe, fun activities you can both enjoy.
