2013 goals for Pyrrha

I am really big on goal-setting all year long, but I get particularly jazzed about it at the end of the year. Accordingly, here are some of my Pyrrha-centric goals for 2013.


Goals for Pyrrha and Me in 2013:

  1. Help her get more comfortable around infants and small children. Get advice from our trainer. This is the big one.
  2. Teach her 5–10 new tricks/behaviors.
  3. Work on teaching her how to play more gently outdoors (e.g., teach her not to maul people’s back legs when they’re not looking).
  4. Take her hiking! This is a shame I haven’t done this, because we live in a perfect place for great, mountainous hikes.
  5. Brush her teeth twice a week. Whew. We’ll see.
  6. Accordingly, help her get more comfortable with all aspects of grooming.
  7. Have even more doggy play-dates!

Do you have any goals or resolutions for your dog(s) in the coming year?
