So for most of us this winter has been nothing but brutal! But alas it looks like Spring is right around the corner!
I know my girls are dying to get out there and start exercising as both have put on a few extra pounds due to lack of activity because of all the crappy weather. I won't limit their diet we will just get more exercise, longer walks and more fun at the park where they can just run, chase balls and be happy pups. Some of our favorite outdoor toys are the Chuckit brand, we love the Chuckit ball thrower, makes it easy to cast the ball far so the girls can stretch their legs and the Chuckit football is fun too as it is easy to pick up on the run.
We always bring water with us as they girls need to be hydrated, whether it is the amazing H2O4K9 water bottles or the Klippy water bottle clips, water on the go is a must for us!
So here is to a warm Spring popping up over the next few days! Get out there and enjoy it, it's healthy for you and your pup!
It's Spring time! The weather is amazing and the sun is shining, your pup is loving long walks through the green grass. Hidden in the grass are those pesky ticks. Yes it's Tick Season! There are two kinds of ticks, the deer tick pictured below on the left which if infected carries Lyme Disease and the common dog tick on the right, we have probably all found on our dogs at one point or another.
There are lots of remedies for preventing this buggers from munching on your pup. Frontline, Advantax, etc all work well but contain harsh chemicals that may make your pup sick or even burn their skin which we have seen. We recommend an all natural solution such as the repellant we have tried and carry by Aroma Paws. Or we also like Natural Defense by Sentry which we also have used. Both have peppermint, clove and lemongrass as their main ingredients.
So be good to your pup and protect them from those nasty buggers and help prevent them from being bit or even contracting Lyme Disease.
