In January I made a goal to for Chester, Gretel and I to exercise more and eat healthier. Perhaps it is because my goals were not concrete, and perhaps it is because I suck at sticking with anything, but I think I stopped before I even started.
It’s not my fault really. I have a million excuses that include “it’s cold and rainy out”. Now that spring is here and we are getting more sun, I actually FEEL like I want to get healthier.
I set a goal for us to hike 250 miles this year. I am also trying to eat more veggies. I bought a Vitamix blender and started experimenting with making smoothies. I even came up with a green smoothie recipe that you can share with your dog.
I’ve decided to re-commit to Chester and Gretel’s health too. I am taking the Only Natural Pet #PawNatural challenge – a challenge about helping pet parents make healthier decisions. They believe that a natural lifestyle contributes to longer and healthier lives for our pets.
I used to mix supplements into Chester and Gretel’s food before I fed them every night but I have gotten lazy and just quickly plop some food in their dish. I am going take the few extra minutes it takes to lift the bowls onto the counter and mix the stuff in, including the new-to-us Only Natural Pet Bladder Control for senior pup Chester.
I am sure I am not the only one who has fallen off of the New-Years-Resolution bandwagon so I challenge you to re-commit to improving your dog’s health by taking the #PawNatural challenge too. If you didn’t make a commitment to your pet’s health in January, I challenge you to make one now.
Try making a small, easy change by switching your dog from kibble to the convenient Only Natural Pet (ONP) Easy Raw or Max Meat food to see if it increases their energy so they enjoy the outdoors more. Try swapping for your dog’s trail treats for the all-meat ONP’s Freeze Dried Raw Nibblet Treats. If you don’t want to change anything, try adding ONP’s glucosamine and asta capsules to your dog’s food every day to help maintain their joints.
What kind of challenge are you and your dog willing to take to lead a healthier and more natural life?
