10 New Year's Resolutions For You & Your Pets

Right about now is when everyone begins sharing their ideas for different New Year's resolutions.

  New Year's Resolution Together With Your Pets! Some people live by these resolutions, some people try, but do not succeed, and others will have no part in them. Me, I am one of those in betweeners. I don't so much make resolutions, but I do have my own personal ideas on what I would like to see in my life and/or my families life for the new year. And one thing I always try and do, is include my pets in the goals I have. Today, I would like to share a few ideas on how to include your pets in your own personal resolutions.

1. Set Aside More Time to Play

Whether you are owned by dogs, cats, or both - more play time is always a good thing!

2. Walking

This is not only healthy for us, but our dogs as well.

3. If You Are Already a Walker, Think About Changing Up Your Routine a Bit

If you generally walk in a certain area every day, start planning out some different areas you can explore. New sights for you, new smells for your dog.

4. One of the Most Common Resolutions Is to Eat Healthier

Keep that in mind for your pets as well. If you're already feeding them a great quality food, what about treats? Check out your local pet stores for healthy treat options. Such as dehydrated single ingredient meats, or even veggie based treats!

5. Try Your Hand at Baking

By far, the best treats we humans ever eat comes from home baked goods. I imagine it would be the same for our pets as well. If you're a baker, you know what i'm saying... if you're like me and can bake very little, lets try some yummy home baked pet treats in 2017!

6. Toys Are Always Fun for Your Pets, But for 2017, Try Mixing It Up a Little

Introduce new toys, toys they have never seen or played with, then switch them up with their old toys every few months.

7. Take Your Dog With You More Often

If there is one thing I know that depresses my dogs, its when I leave the house. Now, obviously when we head off to work or grocery shopping, we can't really bring them with us. But if your heading out to a friends house, ask if your dog can come along!

8. Try a New Activity

There are so many things we can do with our dogs. Everything from agility to hiking. Try something new!

9. Ever Hear of a Kitty Condo?

I mean, sure you can go and buy one... but why not build your own? Cats love being up high, and being able to jump level to level. Build something specific to your home in one section, and watch your cats explore!

10. Finally, Don't Underestimate the Power of Bonding

Find new ways to bond with your pets. Even if that means cuddling up with some yummy treats, and a toy to play tug, or chase the feather. That bonding time is extremely rewarding. Your turn! We would love to hear some of your ideas for New Years Resolutions with your pets! New Year's Resolution and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

Why Did I Wait So Long?

I should have bought these years ago. Easy to use, easy to clean, and tons of headaches saved in trying to keep a blanket or covering on the car seat when taking the dogs on the trails, camping, etc. Highly recommend.

Terrific product at a great price

I am beyond pleased with everything about my new 4Knines split rear back seat cover! The fabric is soft and attractive. The fit in my 2018 CR-V is perfect. Dirt just brushes off it, and water beads and wipes right off. It couldn't easier to put on and take off. This is a wonderful product at a great price.

XL Back seat bench cover

Love our new purchase from 4Knines. We were looking for a back seat cover that would fit our new 2017 F250 crew cab and this one fits perfect. Highly recommend for those wishing to maintain their seats. The material is excellent quality and it’s quick and easy to put on and take off. We also have the bucket seat covers from this company for our 2015 Yukon Denali and have gotten a lot of use out of them over the last couple of years and they are still in excellent condition and so are our seats. Thanks 4Knines for a great product!

great product, sturdy, XL great fit for new 4Runner, cleans easy

I was worried this product might not hold up since one I recently purchased from another company ripped w/in 2 weeks from my 30lb Aussie pulling on it when trying to get into the back. I have been extremely pleased with the XL cargo liner. The straps are much more durable with more stitching and better fabric. I have a 50 lb Border Collie mix and 30 lb Aussie. They have already put the liner to the test!!! I have used it numerous times in the short 2 weeks I have had it. The XL was a great choice for my new 2017 4Runner. It allows me to strap to the front headrests and protect the whole back of the SUV. The skirt protects the bumper. It is too long when I only strap to the middle seats but I just fold under the extra fabric and still have the skirt. I use the full length most of the time and reason I got the XL. The fabric is sturdy and protected the back when the dogs spilled water. So far I have used it to haul bags of topsoil, go on a camping trip and visit family. I purchased the liner mainly to protect the back b/c we have flyball practice every week and tournaments every month. That's a lot of in/out for equipment, doggies and crates. I was very glad to see the edges fold up to protect the wheel wells. I am extremely pleased with this product and sorry I wasted money on my first purchase from other company. I have already recommended the liner to fellow flyball teammates. Shipping was great also. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived Sat. So far I have just swept the dirt off and used a shop vac. Cleans up well and easy.
