New year, new pup! Many people (and pups) embrace the start of a new year by challenging themselves to live healthier and happier. We’ve created a bucket list for you and your pup to make sure 2019 is packed full of activities and lifestyle changes that will lead to your best year yet!
✔ Make your own dog toy.
Few things compare to the joy on a dog’s face when they get a brand new toy. This year, we challenge you to make your own! Don’t worry, we are here to help. Making your own dog toy might just be easier than you think. Check out this video we made! Follow along and you’ll have a new toy in no time.
✔ Discover a new park.
2019 is a fresh start for both you and your pup. Many people take this time as an opportunity to focus on their health. Between community, state, and national parks, there are unlimited places for you to explore. It is easy for us to get stuck in our routines, but pick out a new park you want to try and make an effort to get there before the end of the year. We believe in you!
✔ Volunteer at a local dog shelter.
Unfortunately, many animals are still searching for their fur-ever home. If you’re reading this, we know you’re an animal lover, and local animal shelters could use help from people just like you! One of our favorite no-kill shelters is HASRA. Evolve supports HASRA’s efforts to educate the community on the importance of spaying and neutering animals in addition to their adoption efforts.
HASRA and other no-kill shelters are wonderful places to support. These shelters always welcome extra help. Typically, shelters need help with things like community outreach, dog walking, product donations, and monetary donations, just to name a few. Don’t have a lot of extra time? Consider donating to HASRA. No donation is too small!
✔ Treat yo self.
Sometimes we could all use an extra treat or two, right? Evolve’s grain-free treats with real meat and vegetables are all the yum—without the guilt. Keep a few bags on hand because 2019 is all about treating yourself!
✔ Go camping.
There’s no better way to get back to those wild roots than with a camping trip! Lace up those boots and load up your packs—the trail awaits! Don’t worry, your pup can pull his own weight. With specifically designed dog camping gear, your pup will be looking the part in no time.
✔ Take a road trip.
Open the map and pick a spot. Where will 2019 take you? Whether it is across the state, or across the country, we challenge you to explore someplace new. Dogs may not pick the playlist, but they can provide the company! Be sure to pay attention to your dog’s needs, and don’t leave them in the car alone, especially during the summer months.
✔ Put your pup’s health first.
Whether your dog is a young pup or a senior dog living their best life, it is never too early or too late to start them on a healthy diet. Evolve’s super premium pet food is an excellent and affordable way to give your dog the right protein and nutrients they need to keep up with the kids around the house. Available in a variety of meat-first proteins, Evolve’s tasty recipes will keep your dog begging for more!
