2022's top 5 pet New Year's Resolutions
The new year is here. It's time to reflect on the previous year and consider what we might wish to alter, improve, or achieve in 2022. Much of this contemplation pertains to the lives of pet parents and their pets.
TripsWithPets polled pet parents to find out what resolutions they've made for their dogs in 2022.
The top five pet New Year's Resolutions for 2022 are shown below.
1. Healther DIet
Pet parents' top resolution for the new year is to provide their pets higher-quality food. They've done their homework and want to do everything they can to guarantee that their children have a long, happy, and healthy life. In 2022, pet parents will demand gluten-free, corn-free, home cooking, raw food, and probiotics, among other things.
2. Daily Walks
Twenty percent of pet parents questioned aim to get outside each day and move with their pets this year, whether it's a walk in the park, a stroll around the neighborhood, or a jog along hiking trails (and everything in between). They cited exercise and bonding as reasons for taking their dog for walks more frequently.
3. More Road Trips
More car rides, doggy bakery visits, beach vacations, and getaways are among the things that 17 percent of respondents want to do more with their four-legged family members in the future. This year, many pet parents are focusing on getting out and spending quality time with their pets in order to strengthen their bonds.
More pet parents are opting to take their pets on more outings, which necessitates better socialization. Fifteen percent of pet parents surveyed are dedicated to assisting their timid, jittery, or fearful pet in becoming more comfortable around people, other pets, and in public areas.
Training, which is a close cousin of socialization, is the fifth most popular pet resolution for 2022. We can't all have perfectly behaved pets, but many pet owners plan to invest time to correcting some less-than-ideal behavior. Pet parents are ready to don their pet whisperer hats and educate Rover not to bark at house guests or drag you on walks, as well as practice improved recall (getting your dog to come when called) and train their cat to keep off kitchen counters.
