Most Americans gave their pet a new year’s resolution [watch]

Sixty-one percent of pet owners have made a resolution for their dog or cat, according to a new study of 1,000 pet owners. Approximately half of all dog owners made a resolution for their canine companion, compared to 27% of cat owners.

The most common resolutions for pets? Exercising more (56%), trying a new activity (49%), losing weight (49%), better hygiene (47%) and more playtime (44%). The survey found that 71% of pet owners view the new year as a chance to help their pet get healthier. This makes sense, considering that 62% of pet owners said they’ve felt their dog or cat could do with losing weight after the indulgences of the holiday season. Dogs are 36% more likely than cats to be overfed during the holidays and 31% more dog owners admit to overfeeding than cat owners.
