What Is Your New Year’s Resolution?

January 4, 2013  

Answers to our Community Question of the Week

It’s a new year, and a new beginning, so we asked our Facebook friends: “What is your New Year’s resolution for you and your pooch in 2013? More walks and a better balanced diet, or maybe canine good citizenship or therapy dog training?”

Most of us agree that we need more exercise (especially after all those holiday treats!), but in addition to more walks and longer hikes, a lot of us will be joining agility or canine good citizenship classes. And we all resolve to love our dogs even more this year. Thanks everyone for sharing.





More exercise for all

All treats will be home baked, can’t risk the whole china made treats, my dogs are worth the extra time and effort, I know they would do it for me, so I do it for them

I lost two of my best friends this year, Lucy Lou 1/2/2012 and Maggie Mcgee 10/10/2012. So my New Year’s Resolution is yes, I do have time for one more walk one more kiss one more pat for the rest of my pooches.

Definitely more walks and trips to the mountains and the beach!

Training, training, training…it never stops, and it makes my babies proud of themselves. Aside from that, our goal for this year is to have as much fun, to have as many adventures, and to stay as healthy as possible!
 ~Julia Sierra Hamberger

I set low goals for Jack as far as training. He doesn’t do much but cuddle, so my priority this year is getting him out and about more often! Hikes and walks and social gatherings.

To take all the $$ I’ve saved from doing the recycling at our restaurant and finally fence in the back yard so my amazing pretty pittie Roxy and I can start fostering pitties and get them ready to be someone’s new best friend!
