Healthy is as healthy does!Click To TweetThe holidays will soon be upon us…..a time of lots of celebrations, food, cakes, cookies, and not much time to exercise. There are a few things you can do to make sure you and your dog stick to a healthy lifestyle! Ya ready? Ok, here we go:
- Make a date or two a day with your dog to go for a walk. Make that walk a minimum of say 30 minutes, or 1 to 2 miles. And have that walk or walks take place everyday at the same time in the morning and/ or evening.
- When going food shopping- stick to getting those healthy foods. Forget the candy- think pet friendly foods- you know those you can share with your dog. For instance chocolate is toxic for your dog- so opt for carob instead. That way if you do make treats, you will share them with your dog and friends dogs and you and your dog will eat less of those sweet treats, which end up around your waistline!
- You’ll most likely be inviting friends over during the holidays, now that we have a few weeks- start training your dog now to sit, lie DOWN, go to their spot (preferably their own bed not far from company), and not to jump up on people. This will make the holidays more enjoyable for everyone. Oh- while others are at your house, involve your dog whenever you can…. (we’ll go over some training in the next week or two so you can work on these things before company arrives)….
These are the top three things to consider doing to get ready to live a healthy lifestyle during the holiday season. Everything you do with your dog is related to a healthy lifestyle. From the basic sit to a nice run, how you run, where you run. Doing your DOGA practice etc. In November we will be offering up a few guides for free here on Doggone Healthy Choices for basic training, Doga poses, and more….so check back weekly for those guides and challenges ahead…..prizes will be awarded to some of you!
Ok, so subscribe over to the right on this page to get automatic updates. And hold tight for those free guides and challenges.
Until then have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day!
