Automacity for new behaviors is reached after 66 days - how is
your New Year's Resolution shaping up?
Here we are in February of 2013. The Mayan calendar was

more time for your dog

more appreciative of your dog
getting frustrated at your dog for your dog behavior management
Continuing your learning as a dog owner
a less fortunate dog.
If these elements topped your list for 2013, we hope that you
are staying the course.
These are US stats, but interesting nonetheless.
Apparently about 66% of Americans make New Year's Resolutions but
only 8% successfully achieve their objective. Of course there
are many reasons why resolutions do not reach success.
The New Year isn't meant to serve as a catalyst for sweeping
character changes. It is a time for individuals to reflect on
past year and decide if there is anything they would like to
change. If you are looking to add a dog to your family, we
would love to help. If you are looking to help dogs in need,
we would love to have you.
We are just reminding you that by incorporating a new behavior
into your everyday life it will be easier to sustain the changes
that you would like to make.
