Spring is finally in the air. The snow has melted, the sun is shining and your dog is chomping at the bit to jump in every muddy puddle they can find. Here are some great ideas to spring into spring!
Spring Apparel: How about a new collar to compliment the weather? A brighter color with fun designs would help jump start any dog into romping outside in the new grass. If you enjoy dressing your pup, add a new dress or t-shirt to their waredrobe put some pep in their step! Or you can start off small with a darling collar bud or stylish bowtie.
Playtime: Now that playing outside is an option again, time to try some clean new toys! Some toys just aren’t as much fun to play with inside, so grab some new tug toy or ball to throw around with your dog. If your dog prefers softer toys with squeakers, introduce some nice clean ones, and throw out or wash any smelly, dirty ones that he’s been dragging around the house all winter.
Spring Cleaning: Dog beds, blankets, and pillows can become really stale after repeated use, and some of them can’t be put in the dryer. Use the warmer weather to line dry blankets after washing or put beds up in a sunny part of the patio or porch to air dry them. Clean blankets will help your dog stay great-smelling after that stunning haircut or bath!
Exercise: It’s the perfect time to take advantage of the warm, longer days! Everyone needs exercise to stay healthy, and spring means long walks wherever you can go, in either the city or country! With the warmer weather there are always more dogs to meet, more squirrels to chase, and more fun to be had! Grab that leash and GO!
