6 Things to Do With Your Dog This Year

Happy New Year! As we leave 2017 behind and roll ahead into 2018, many of us are making plans for the coming months. Your canine buddy may not have much planned just yet, aside from naps and meals. Why not add a few things to your pet’s agenda? Read on as a local Walnut, CA vet lists some things to do with Fido in 2018.


Dogs are very smart and curious, and often really love going to new places. If your daily doggy walks always take you down the same route, let your pup enjoy a change of scenery. Take Fido to a park, or explore a new route or trail.

Learn Something New

Does your canine pal have basic doggy obedience commands mastered yet? If Fido doesn’t know important commands like Sit, Stay, Come, Heel, and Lay Down, take time to finish your pet’s education in 2018. If Fido already has these down, have some fun with him and show him a cute trick. (Tip: Gimme Paw and Roll Over will never stop being adorable.)

Book A Photo Session

You don’t necessarily need to hire a professional photographer to get some great pictures of your furry friend. Enlist a friend or family member to help you get some cute candid shots of you and Fido.

Get Some Exercise

Proper activity is important for both you and your canine companion. Make sure that Fido is getting the right amount and type of activity. Every dog has unique exercise needs, so ask your vet for recommendations.

Enjoy A Yummy Treat

Snacks are definitely one of Fido’s favorite things. Pamper your pooch with a special meal or treat. Take him to a doggy café, or just make him something special. Just be sure to only offer your pup safe, suitable foods.


Life can get pretty hectic. Fido may not have to worry about bills, work, or appointments, but he’ll be more than willing to help you unwind after a hectic day, perhaps by napping at your feet, or just sticking close by. Spend time with your pet this year. The time we have with our furry best friends often passes much too quickly!
