According to the “Milk-Bone Human-Canine Health Study”— a survey of 3,000 U.S. dog parents conducted by Milk-Bone brand dog treats (in conjunction with Learndipity Data Insights) —pet parents who include their pups in family health routines lead healthier lives. In fact, 55% of dog parents say their lives are “full of happiness and joy,” compared to 39% of non-dog parents.
What are four tips to ensure that the entire family – including Fido – is healthy and well?
>> DOGGY EXERCISE
51% of dog parents say they get more exercise because of their dog — but 1 out of 3 pet parents wish their dog would get more physical activity
TIP #1: Turn your pups’ morning or evening walking session into a fun, impromptu workout session for the entire family, so both you and Fido will get your daily fit fix.
>> PUPPY NUTRIENTS
1 out of 3 pet parents are concerned their dog isn’t getting enough of the nutrients they need.
TIP #2: Start every day with a vitamin routine for the whole family. Your pup’s should include nutrients not found in most dog foods, like Glucosamine to support healthy joints or DHA to supplement overall wellness, which Milk-Bone’s Good Morning Daily Vitamin Treats provide.
>> PETTING SESSION CHECK-UPS
Pet parents conduct “well puppy” check-ups, as they would with their child. If a dog is rubbing his eyes, or has oily spots or bumps in his fur, something could be wrong.
>> A FAMILY RITUAL:
57% of dog parents who also have children involve the kids in their doggy caring care routines, with most reporting that it teaches them good life habits and responsibility.
TIP #4: Your pup needs just as much attention and care as you and your children. When it’s time for your kids to brush their teeth, brush his teeth too (or give him Milk-Bone Brushing Chews).
I’m so happy that Milk-Bone selected us to join forces with to spread a healthy message for both humans and canines… one that features some surprising wellness tips plus new Good Morning Daily Vitamin Treats (which provides beneficial nutrients not found in most dog foods). My 30lb pug, Marley, LOVES his morning vitamins and my children enjoy taking turns giving him his treat. We also really love the Brushing Chews, it seriously helped this pugs horrid breath! And if you have a pug, you know, they always breathe through their mouths… peee-yeewww!
