January is National Train Your Dog Month

For pet parents who have made a New Year’s resolution to embark on enriching their canine companion’s life with an education in etiquette, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers made January National Train Your Dog Month.

Since its start in 2010, this pet holiday has offered a month-long look at the skills needed to keep our barking buddies both safe and stress free, and helps pet guardians understand their dog’s demeanor. [Dogtipper]

January is Walk Your Pet Month

You may have made your New Year’s resolution to get healthier which may include walking more. Lucky for you, it’s National Walk Your Pet Month. Take your dog along and work on your resolutions together!

According to Pet Obesity Prevention, 57.9% of American pets are overweight or obese and even an extra two pounds on your cat (or five on dogs) is associated with greater risk for disease. Not only is walking a good activity for us, but for our pets too.

January Is National Adopt a Rescued Bird Month!

You probably didn’t know this, but January is National Adopt a Rescued Bird month, a great time to bring a new feathered friend into your home. There are thousands of abandoned, homeless birds in need of adoption, and with the aid of the Internet, you can actually see and learn about them without ever leaving your house. 

With so many birds available, how do you know which one would be right for you? As a bird veterinarian, I of course love all species of birds. However, when it comes to choosing a bird to rescue, I do have a few favorites. Here is my pick of the top 5 most desirable birds, from smallest to largest, you might want to consider adopting if you are thinking about getting an avian companion:

January 5 is the 16th Annual National Bird Day

National Bird Day is on January 5 each year, as it's scheduled to coincide with the end of the annual Christmas Bird Count. The Christmas Bird Count has been going on for more than a decade. It lasts three weeks and is the longest running citizen science survey in the world that helps to monitor the health of our nation's birds. Birders and the public go out and count as many birds as they can see during the count.

The reason National Bird Day falls on January 5 is that, for three weeks, the country is focused on native birds and wild populations. Once that period ends, we begin to focus on captive birds (who mainly consist of bird species that are native to other countries, but who are kept in captivity in the U.S.). January 5 is the new beginning for captive birds!
