>> Sunday, January 3, 2016 – Tips for Holidays
Did you make a new year’s resolution this year? I have a few “self-improvement” projects I am going to work on this year, and today, the 3nd day of the new year, I have gotten started. According to a 2002 study, statistics are not on my side; only 46% of people are still on track 6 months later. It is hard to change bad habits. Speaking of bad habits, do your new year’s resolutions include your pets?
More dogs and cats are abandoned because of their bad habits.Housebreaking, barking, chewing and destructive behavior are the primary reasons people abandon their pets. If your pet could use a “self-improvement project”, then make it a new year’s resolution to help them make the changes. Enroll in a class, increase their exercise, discover what triggers the undesirable behaviors and you will discover more about your pet. Training and discovery is fun with your furry friend. We can all use a bit of “fine-tuning” and now is the time of year to start.
