While we welcome the arrival of the warmer weather, we also welcome allergies, spring-cleaning and gardening! Get your pooch ready for the sun and make sure you have the following things ready:
- Tick Medication: This has been an unusually warm winter and ticks haven’t had their usual time off. In most winters, ticks vanish by the fall and then make their appearance again in late-April. This year the warmth allowed them to be present until December and arrive even earlier! Make sure you’ve stocked up on tick medication for your dog.

Get to your local dog park and make sure you bring your Frisbee, because your dog will love to fetch and play all day long.
- Keep your Pup clean: All that playing outside will definitely cause your pup to drag in mud and other filth into your house. Make sure they are clean and not messing up your spring-cleaning! Give them regular baths and try to wipe their feet before they walk in. Make sure you’re brushing their coat regularly as well because
- Go to the Vet: Make sure your puppy is up to date on all his shots and make sure he is a healthy, happy, pup! If he suffers from allergies, ask your vet what you can do to make his spring a little bit more enjoyable!
