New Year’s Resolutions Inspired by Dogs

January 1, 2018

Happy New Year! Are you making resolutions this year? It’s always good to revisit your personal objectives, and perhaps set some new priorities for yourself. If you have a dog, your canine buddy will be cheering you on with tail wags and happy dances as you strive to meet your goals. Actually, Fido may also offer some great inspiration for the coming year! In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, a local vet lists some great resolutions inspired by dogs.


Dogs are super cute when they are feeling frisky. It’s hard not to smile when watching Fido happily bound after his favorite toy . . . or even just chasing after a stick. Play with your canine companion every day, and take time to just have some fun yourself, too!


Fido loves exploring new places, and conquering brand new patches of grass. Go somewhere new this year! Try that café you’ve always wanted to go to, or take a vacation to somewhere you’ve never been.

Be Loyal

Dogs are capable of incredible loyalty. No matter what 2018 may bring, your furry best friend will stay right by your side, offering unconditional love and devotion. Be faithful to those who have been good to you!

Eat Well

If there’s one thing dogs are unequivocally enthusiastic about, it’s food. (Actually, Fido may be a little over-enthusiastic about food at times, but that’s beside the point.) Offer your pooch high-quality, nourishing food. Pay attention to what you are eating as well: opt for healthy, nutritious meals.

Enjoy The Little Things

It doesn’t take much to make Man’s Best Friend happy. Car rides, long walks, new toys, belly rubs, and treats can all make Fido’s day. Take time to enjoy life’s simple pleasures!


Did you know that dogs spend about half of their time sleeping? While you probably don’t need that much rest, it is important to make sure you’re getting enough rest.

Spend Time With Loved Ones

At the end of the day, Fido really just wants to hang out with his human pals. Spend time with your loved ones this year!
