New Years Resolutions may be for the dog mom and dog dad, but your dog wants to fulfill their 2023 bucket list.  And yes, you can come along for all the fun and games, too! Here are the Top 10 bucket list activities your dog wants in 2023:

Get Your Dog a Dog

If you’re a dog lover, then why not love two dogs?  Get your dog a built in brother, sister, bestie for chase, cuddle and walkies! Or if you can’t adopt, how about foster?  Fostering helps by making room for other pups in the rescue and your foster dog gets to experience home life. #winwin

Be Social

Take a Hike

Nothing like breathing in the great outdoors with your four-legged friend.  Whether you hike or even camp with your dog, nature is the ultimate playground for Fido.

Get Wet

Many dogs (not you Fifi) actually love getting wet.  Whether you are splashing through puddles, running through the sprinkler or swimming in the ocean, dogs are here for it.  If you do take the plunge, make sure your pup has the proper safe swim gear.

Kitchen Time

Pupsicles, Pupcakes and Puppuccinos. Get in the kitchen and whip up a batch of homemade treats.  Bonus is they are dog and human friendly, then both of you can enjoy the sweet treats together.

Go Team
