Take your pup on more walks - We all know that adequate exercise means a happier, healthier dog and a better you!
Teach your dog new tricks - Old or young, you can stimulate the canine mind by challenging them with new tricks and rewarding them with delicious treats.
Explore dog parks - Socialization is just as important for your dog as it is for you. Encourage interactions by taking them to a local off-leash park.
Take your cat on a walk - While not every cat may enjoy this, it's worth it to see if your cat does! Just like any other living creature, cats need plenty of exercise and what better way is there than by getting some fresh air with their favorite person?
Stop feeding them human food - People and cats have different nutritional needs. Avoid feeding them something dangerous or unfulfilling by making sure they stick to a healthy, vet-recommended diet.
Spend more time together - Research shows that playing with or petting your companion animal can not only reduce stress, but has the potential to prolong your life. So when things get crazy as the new year begins, take a few moments to relax with your fur baby; you'll both feel better!
