  • This resolution benefits both you and your furry companion by improving fitness levels and fostering a deeper bond.

2. Improve Training and Enrichment: Make it a goal to enhance your dog’s mental stimulation through training sessions or puzzles. Spend dedicated time reinforcing commands, teaching new tricks, or engaging in brain-teasing activities.
