New Year's Resolutions... for dogs!
Can you believe it's January again? At Lillidale HQ, we've been thinking about our New Year's Resolutions, and how we can create resolutions that our dogs can benefit from, too. Here are our top picks for 2024!
1. Brushing your dog's teeth
According to one study, only 17% of dog owners brush their pet's teeth every week - when ideally you should be brushing them every day! Dog dental hygiene is really important, as it helps to prevent the build up of plaque and tartar, the two culprits of dental disease. It's good to get dogs used to teeth brushing from an early age, but it's never too late to start a good teeth-brushing routine.
Use specially formulated dog toothpaste and brushes to keep bad breath and bacteria at bay, and keep your dog's mouth feeling fresh and clean.
2. A happier, healthier dog
Looking to cut back on unhealthy treats for your dog? Whether you're trying to maintain a healthy weight for your pet, or just want them to feel their best selves, why not try and swap out their usual favourites for things like carrots, or even have a go at making your own healthy dog treats! We love this recipe here - quick, easy and very tasty (according to Malty the Lillidale Office Dog!)
You could also start incorporating a supplement into your dog's diet to give them that spring in their step. Our ProJoint for Dogs supplement is perfect for keeping growing, ageing and active dogs in tip-top condition by:
- Maintaining free movement of joints for all dog breeds and ages
- Supporting your dog's natural anti-inflammatory response
- Providing optimum level of Omega 3 to support health and vitality
- Natural source of Beta-Glucans to support gut wall function and aid immunity
3. Go exploring
There's no better feeling than a blast of fresh air with your four-legged friend. Why not explore your local National Trust attraction with a well deserved cuppa at the end of your walk - you can find all the dog-friendly National Trust locations here! Or if you're feeling a bit more adventurous, pack your sandwiches and your walking boots and find a dog-friendly hike in your area - but make sure you've checked the route beforehand so that you know both you and your dog are capable of the summit! We like to find hikes suitable for dogs here.
