It’s time to shake off those wet winter blues and get back out there!
Well thank goodness that extra cold winter is finally over! With doggos chomping at the bit to head outdoors with our hoomans, we’re making the most of the warmer months with four fun ways to do Spring like a champ.
Shed the winter pooch
No judgement here hoomans, it happens to the best of us. Luckily with all those new and exciting sights, smells, and sounds to (literally) get stuck into – now’s the pawfect time for exercising off those extra kilos with some lovely long walkies sessions!
Just be warned… we dogs can find all those new Spring plants to sniff and creatures to chase extremely enticing. And since we’re not exactly known for stopping to think before we run off, it’s really impawtant to keep us safe and secure with the right collar, lead or harness. Of course, you won’t want to forget about style either. We love looking like the most dapper dog on the block so why not bring on the Spring vibes with a bright colour and matching set? That’s sure to get the puparazzi paying attention!
Do some Spring cleaning
My pawrents aren’t the only ones after a new look. During the warmer months, dogs of all hair lengths tend to do some of their best shedding – and we love the chance to put our best paw forward with a furbulous makeover! (Just try to keep the bathtime part as quick as you can, please!)
Getting a wash and new haircut isn’t as shallow as it might sound, either.. With insects and plants both going crazy during Spring, it’s important to keep our parasite prevention up to date and with regular grooming to help minimise allergic reactions. C’mon dad, whaddya say? Let’s get itch-free and give those ticks er… a nervous tick!
Get some Vitamin D..og
Ah… there’s nothing quite like curling up and catching some rays with a spot of alfresco napping and bird watching! Now that the sun is finally out, I’m spotting all sorts of interesting neighbourhood activity. For starters, the postie has been delivering much more skimpy packages this month. And don’t get me started on my mate Willie Wagtail! Aside from his obviously cool name, he’s up all hours singing love songs to attract a better half. And after three non-stop nights, I reckon it might actually be starting to work!
Yep, this is better than Netflix. Think I might just stay right here for another couple of hours. (Don’t be jelly hoomans… that’s why you’re always telling us it’s a dog’s life!)
Take it to the extreme!!
Extreme play, that is. Now that the beaches, pools, and random puddles are all that extra bit warmer, they make the pawfect place for some fun hooman and hound frolicking. See, just like you two-legged types, we also enjoy the feel of sand in between our pads and splashing about on those hotter days. And, while every doggo is different, most of us were born to swim and are especially amenable if we were first introduced to the water in a fun way.
Oh, speaking woofing of fun! Have you seen this pawsome new range of tuff toys designed especially for outdoor life? There’s a footy, giant bone, and even a classic ball thrower that all float and can also withstand even the harshest of conditions… including canine. Well, what can I say? We goodest boys and girls enjoy having a job… there’s no Spring Break to be seen around here!
