Resolution Check-In

Automacity for new behaviors is reached after 66 days - how is your New Year's Resolution shaping up? 


Here we are in February of 2013.  The Mayan calendar was renewed, there was no apocalypse.  Life will continue. 

Thought this might be a good time to check in on how your New Year's Resolutions were holding up. 

Was your goal to improve yourself as a dog owner? 

-          Adopting a dog

-          Making more time for your dog

-          Ensuring you are being as responsible as you can

-          Being more appreciative of your dog

-          Not getting frustrated at your dog for your dog behavior management failures

-          Continuing your learning as a dog owner

-          Helping a less fortunate dog. 

If these elements topped your list for 2013, we hope that you are staying the course. 

These are US stats, but interesting nonetheless.  Apparently about 66% of Americans make New Year's Resolutions but only 8% successfully achieve their objective.  Of course there are many reasons why resolutions do not reach success.

The New Year isn't meant to serve as a catalyst for sweeping character changes.  It is a time for individuals to reflect on past year and decide if there is anything they would like to change.  If you are looking to add a dog to your family, we would love to help.  If you are looking to help dogs in need, we would love to have you. 

We are just reminding you that by incorporating a new behavior into your everyday life it will be easier to sustain the changes that you would like to make.
