New Year's Resolutions - Provide More Exercise- Part 2

This month, we’re talking about New Year’s Resolutions that include our pets.  Here’s another tip to help make 2014 a happier healthier New Year.

Provide more exercise.  Contrary to popular belief, dogs do not stay in shape by running around  the yard by themselves.  The best way to keep our dogs lean and healthy is to take them for a brisk walk. This has the added benefit of providing exercise for us as well!  Cats can burn calories by playing with an inexpensive, interactive “cat dancer” toy, or chasing a wind-up toy mouse.  Many unwanted feline behaviors as brought on by boredom, and these toys can help keep their minds engaged.

If you would like to start agility classes with your dog, or are planning more rigorous activities such as running or biking, please make an appointment to make sure your dog can safely enjoy these new adventures.
