A few days ago I made my very short list of New Year’s resolutions. It turns out I’m not alone when it comes to including your pets in hopes for the new year.
Halo, Purely for Pets, recently surveyed more than 1,000 pet owners and 88.7% plan to help their pets get more exercise.
62.4% – more walks
68.3% – play with them more
30.3% – find a new game to play
20.2% – go to the dog park more often
15.8% – run my cat up and down stairs
2.9% – take a Doga class
1.9% – get into extreme sports
And, 45.9% plan to help their pets lose weight in 2012 by:
68.7% – get more exercise
44.8% – feed better quality food
35.1% – feed less food
34% – give fewer treats
33% – give more nutritious treats
10.9% – plan a program with their vet
Looking at these statistics, I’m nodding my head agreeing with a lot of them. Although, enrolling Riley in a Doga class seems a little far-fetched, no?
Overall, I think it’s awesome to see pet parents including their furkids in their new year’s resolutions. Now, let’s try and stick to them!
Thanks to BlogPaws for alerting me of this fun survey!
