Cold, harsh weather will soon be a faraway memory and our pets are already wagging their tails in anticipation! Get your canine companion ready for the warmer season so he or she can enjoy it to the fullest. Take a look at some simple steps you can take to prepare your dog for spring and make it their best one yet:
Slowly increase outdoor exercise time.
When spring arrives, your dog will be outside much more often. Prep them for the increased activity by gradually including more exercise so that your pet becomes used to it. This helps avoid injury due to a sudden increase in activity. Need a hand with regular dog walks? Your Peeps are always happy to help!
Schedule a vet checkup.
Head to your trusted vet for a check up so you can be 100% sure that your furry friend is ready to enjoy spring. Ensure that necessary vaccines and medications are all updated.
Check out some new activities.
If it has been a while since your last outing or if you’re new to the area, it’s the perfect time to ask around about any dog parks, play groups, or other fun pet activities that may be happening around the neighborhood. You can then start planning which activities your dog will enjoy and find out what you need to do so you and your pet can join in.
Inspect your collars and leashes.
If your dog’s leash and collar wasn’t used a lot during the colder season, you should definitely give it a thorough inspection now and get a new one if needed. Check if your current collar still fits well, and if it’s still in a safe and usable state. If there is rust on the ring, frayed edges, or if the tags aren’t readable anymore, it’s better to be safe than sorry and buy a new collar!
Get ready to have fun!
Bonding with your pets outdoors during the warmer weather can be just as enjoyable for pet parents as it is for them. Put on some comfy clothes, sunscreen, and get ready to have an awesome time. Regular exercise is a must for dogs but for days when work or other responsibilities have to come first, your trusted Peeps are always ready to take care of your pets. Schedule a service today!
