THE most common resolution we set for ourselves during the year is to exercise and get in shape. We all know why exercise is important - It makes us feel strong! It gets the endorphines in our body flowing, and it can go a long way to building a healthy mind and happier spirit! But maintaining the motivation to exercise regularly can be downright daunting and most people give up on this resolution after about a month or so (sooner for some of us lazy humans!). This is where an accountability partner can make all the difference. Whether they are 2 or 4 legged, furry or not, partners in physical fitness will help you keep to a schedule and have a great time getting in shape. Here are some great ways to keep active with your pet in the coming months!
There’s a reason why they say there are dog people and cat people: cats and dogs are VERY different and caring for each requires different sets of skills. This is why hiring professional pet sitters with lots of experience is so important when traveling. From feeding schedules to exercise and play, cats exist with their humans in a completely different way than dogs, and your cat sitter should be able to explain the following differences and know how to care for your cat accordingly.
It’s the season of rebirth and growth and the perfect time to reboot those New Year’s resolutions we’ve already given up on. The gyms on the Upper West and Upper East Sides have thinned out, the lines at the organic juice bars have shortened, and our attempt at “Kondo-ing” our lives has really just turned into shoving a bunch of our belongings into boxes and pushing those boxes under our beds for “further inspection.” Our hectic NYC lifestyle always has a way of creeping up on us and squashing our most ambitious New Year goals.
“I would never have a dog in New York City.” I hear these ten words about three times a week as I walk with my small group of furry customers. “How can people keep their dogs cooped up in tiny apartments all day?”
