new-year-resolutions-for-your-pet

The New Year is a chance to look back at how far we’ve come and decide where we want to go next. Maybe you jotted down a few goals for yourself in the midst of all that gift wrapping and egg-nogging, but how about for your dog? It’s not too late to start thinking about goals for your pup! At Dogtopia, we’re here to help you get a jump start on all those resolutions for a happier and healthier 2019 for you and your four-legged family members.

Meet New Friends

There’s always room for another BFFF (Best Furry Friend Forever)! Our dog daycare facilities provide a variety of fun playrooms for your dog to meet others just like them. We group by size, personality and play style in climate-controlled playrooms that are safe and comfortable for the ultimate BFFF experience. Your pup is sure to make new friends in no time. And bonus – this positive socialization encourages positive behavior back at home, so you’ll both be happier.

Exercise More Often

Physical exercise and maintaining a healthy weight are so important for our four-legged friends no matter their age. More than half of the dogs in the US are considered obese, which can lead to a variety of health issues. Spending quality, active play time with friends is just about as good as it gets. In addition to romping around in our playrooms, here are more ideas to help fit exercise into your dog’s daily routine. Consider trying out a few of these until you find what works best for both of you.

Learn Something New

Our team of Canine Coaches are here to make sure your dog lives up to their full potential. Not only will your pup learn how to be social and comfortable around others, they’ll have fun doing it! We focus on improving behavior and manners during open play with a variety of brain games, like follow the leader, door control and group sit exercises. Plus, all of our coaches go through an extensive training process designed by a canine behaviorist to make sure your dog is learning in a way that works best for them. Select Dogtopia locations even offer additional training! Find a location near you.

Get Pampered

Between house guests, decorating, baking and so many more holiday activities this time of year, we could all use the chance to rest and recoup heading into 2019. At Dogtopia, our spa facilities cater to every need – from worry-free bath time and a brush out to nail, teeth and ear cleaning. There’s nothing a day at the spa won’t fix, even for the ultimate diva in your house! We also cater to noise sensitivities and stock up on hypoallergenic products for every coat.

Here at Dogtopia, we’re the one-stop-shop for all of your New Year’s resolutions. Together, we can make 2019 the best year yet for you and your furry family member!
