New Year's Resolutions


Staff member
So we all know that the new year is just around the bend. For those that don't know a New Year's resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more lasting personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. For most people usually goals include improve well-being, improve finances, improve career, improve education, improve self, take a trip or volunteer. This year I'm making my new year's resolution include my dogs as well.

Jinx: Work on her recall and her barking at horses,

Isis: Work on her human aggression and leave it.

Kratos: Work towards CGC and overcome his fear of kids.

What are your resolutions with your dogs?

Buddy's 2012 resolutions:
Learn how to do "heelwork" (the kind where they look up at you while in contact with your leg)
Learning invisible boundaries
continue to improve learning how to stay calm while seeing unknown dogs.

for Atlas:
continue working on being calm around people.
more stimulating experiences (hikes, road trips to new places, etc).
teach him to respond to a vibrating collar.
wear the backpack (with weights -starting out at .5 pounds- in the pockets) my mom made for him on every walk.


What a lovely idea (y)

For Poppy

Heelwork - both in person and with my wheelchair.

Stair work - to go up and down a full flight of stairs in a house (Poppy can go up may be 3/4 but no more)

Increase her confidence to do her toilet outside the garden (any suggestions would be appreciated)
