New Year’s resolutions for your dog

New Year’s resolutions are not just for humans. It’s a good time to take a look at your dog’s habits and lifestyle too. So why not start the year with an assessment of your dog’s needs and address any issues. Here are some top tips for your four-legged friends!

1. Doggy diet

1. Doggy diet

Is your dog eating the correct amount and right food for their height and breed? Human food and unhealthy treats will not provide the nutrition they need. Stick to good quality dog food with the occasional dog-specific treat. Here are some healthy homemade dog treats you can make at home.

2. Exercise

2. Exercise

Get the balance right – under-exercise leads to unfit obese dogs and over-exercise can cause joint problems. For example, retrievers can be susceptible to stiffness in their hips and less active breeds such as pugs can suffer from obesity. The Blue Cross has put together a dog and human-friendly work out that will get you feeling fit.

3. Socialisation

3. Socialisation

Integration and socialisation with other dogs is core for a rounded well-balanced pet. Puppies not socialised at a young age, ideally as soon as they are fully vaccinated at around 11 weeks, will lack the social skills required to interact well with other dogs and humans.
