I know my Athena benefits from the same things I benefit from – better eating habits, more sleep, fresh water, plenty of fresh air and exercise, good dental hygiene, daily vitamins, and also a handful of treats to help have healthier and happier days. Dogs are more, to put it simply. They’re more than pets – they’re part of our family. They’re more than animals – they’re friends – who know just when you need a snuggle or a sympathetic ear. I love my time with Athena so much.
1 – More physical activity. This can be a tough time of year for pets. Athena has always been my wingwoman when I’m exercising at the park. With the recent temperature drops and icy paths, I’ve had to get more creative with taking her for walks. And I’ve had to get creative in general. To get more physical activity for my dog, I play games with her indoors. I’ve also signed her up for an agility class. I can’t wait! Other than that, we DO get outside – as long as it’s not dangerously cold.
2 – Taking a daily vitamin. Did you know that dogs could take vitamins? I just found this out! Milk-Bone Good Morning Daily Vitamins are a tasty treat to start every day! They provide nutrients not found in most dog foods. And they taste like a treat, while having the added benefits to ensure a lifetime of health and vitality for my dog.
3 – Taking care of those teeth! Luckily, there’s Milk-Bone Brushing Chews Dental Treats. These are delicious daily dental treats clinically proven as effective as brushing. They taste like a treat, freshen breath, and clean like a toothbrush.
4 – Be on top of regular medication. Sometimes dogs need to take regular or situational medications and they don’t like the taste. Milk-Bone Pill Pouches are specially made for dogs who have a hard time with taking medicine/pills. They are bite-sized treats that disguise your dog’s pills as a deliciously soft and meaty treat. This makes pill-giving more enjoyable for both you and your dog. For all of these amazing products, head to Target’s dog aisle. There’s so much to find!
5 – Find joy in the little things in life. This should be no problem for my dog, Athena, who already does this so flawlessly and naturally. It’s me who can learn a few things from her! Perhaps we’re on our New Year’s resolutions path together. And it’s helpful to head to Target to pick up the Milk-Bone products that will help keep my dog in tip-top shape. That can’t help but inspire me too. We’ve integrated these three products into our pet care routine, and I know it’s working out well.
I really love the idea of Athena having clean teeth, but it’s so novel to me to have her take a daily vitamin like I do! She reminds me every morning, in her excited way, and then that reminds ME to take mine. It’s mutually beneficial!
