New Year’s Resolutions For You and Your Dog

Sparky Steps - New Year’s Resolutions for you and your dog

New Year’s Resolutions for you and your dog

The new year is nearly upon us. We here at Sparky Steps will always look back upon the year with pleasure, as this was the year that our organization launched, and we were able to gain the best clients around the Chicagoland area. It is our hope that the new year will prove to be even more productive, eventful and fun. To start things off on the right foot, we put our heads together to come up with some New Year’s resolutions we think would benefit everyone!

 

Exercise more!

Pups need to stay in shape too! It’s starting to get cold here in the Windy City, but that doesn't mean that we should get lazy! Try to develop a more frequent walk schedule for you and your dog. Please feel free to reach out to us if you wish to increase the duration or frequency of your dog’s walks. We are always more than happy to help!

 

Eat better!

There are so many great food choices around Chicago. We can’t get enough of deep-dish pizza or Chicago-style hot dogs, but it’s always beneficial to expand your palette. Salads or other choices are a healthy alternative for humans, just like there are more nutritious dog foods out there for our canine companions. Research the ingredients in your dog’s food, and determine if that is the most healthy choice. If not, check out some of the brands below: https://www.thedailymeal.com/healthy-eating/healthiest-and-unhealthiest-dog-foods

 

Learn a new skill!

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to try something new. Take up a hobby you’ve always been interested in learning, like sewing, playing the piano or whittling. Dogs can always be taught new tricks as well. Try to work on the basics like sit, shake or roll over.

 

Travel, travel, travel!

Chicago is surely one of the most beautiful cities in the world. But, it’s never a bad thing to expand your horizons! Below are some dog-friendly destinations that you and your pupper can travel to.

 

Make some new friends!

There are a lot of places throughout the Chicagoland area to make new friends, both human or canine. Some ideas are:
  1. Take your dog to some pet-friendly bars or restaurants- https://chicago.eater.com/maps/dog-friendly-chicago-bars-restaurants
  2. Check out some dog parks across the city https://windycitypaws.com/chicago-dog-parks-guide/
  3. Adopt a pet! Give a shelter animal a new life https://sparkysteps.com/chicago-animal-shelters/

 

However you choose to better yourself in the coming year is okay with us! We hope that this list provides our clients and community with some ideas. What are your new year's resolutions? Be sure to let us know! Use the hashtag #SparkyStepsNewYears
