New Year’s Resolutions for Dogs

Happy New Year! Are you making resolutions for 2020? If so, your canine buddy will be right at your side as you work towards your new goals. Actually, Fido may have a few resolutions of his own! An Orangevale, CA vet lists some doggy resolutions below.

Score More Treats

If Fido had one main goal in life, it may very well be to eat as many treats and snacks as possible. This really isn’t the healthiest goal, though. Generally, you’ll want to limit treats to about 5 percent of your pet’s diet.

Collect All The Belly Rubs

Dogs are absolutely adorable when they are enjoying belly rubs. Ear scritches and back pats also put that super cute ‘smile’ on Fido’s face. Pay lots of attention to your pooch this year!

Chase Off The Vacuum Cleaner

Fido may really never figure out the vacuum cleaner. To you, it’s a great cleaning tool, and a huge help in getting rid of pet fur and doggy odors. To your furry pal, it’s a scary robot that’s trying to attack you!

Get My Bed Back From The Cat

Kitties may be small, but that doesn’t stop them from commandeering their canine roommates’ beds. All we can do is wish Fido luck with this one.

Perfect My Begging Game

Man’s Best Friend has stood faithfully by our side for thousands of years. He’s also been working on that sad-puppy-look for thousands of years. Treats are fine, but don’t spoil your pup!

Avoid Baths

Does your pooch run and hide when he hears the dreaded B-word? Sorry, Fido: baths are for your own good!

More Car Rides!

The way dogs get super excited when it’s time for a car ride is super cute. Take your pet to a new park or trail this year. Just put Fido’s safety first, and keep him crated for travel.


This one is probably fairly self-explanatory. However, it’s probably best if Fido doesn’t make this goal: too many fatty treats are bad for him!

Be The Goodest Boy

One reason that dogs are such wonderful pets and companions is the fact that they really do love to please their humans. Remember to reward Fido with treats, praise, and attention when he’s being good.
