1. Plan for healthcare. Set aside money monthly, or check into pet health insurance, so you can handle emergencies.|
2. Follow Her Lead. Don't rush through walks; let her stop and smell the roses.
3. Treat less, play more. Play tug or catch. See games (Iten, Michelle. "I resolve to.." Dog Fancy, Dec. 2003, 70).
4. Exercise more with your dog.
