The weather is warmer, the days are longer and the outdoors is calling our name. With spring comes great days for Frisbee in the park or a fun game of catch. Below are some ideas for making the most of this spring with your dog.
1) Schedule a play date. Your pet is ready to frolic in the green grass and run around tirelessly. Why not get another animal friend to entertain your dog while you relax in the sun?
2) Find a new park. Sick of taking your dog to the same old spot? Divert from your usual route and explore a new area of town with a casual walk or some fun games.
3) Watch the sunset with your furry friend. Curfew is for the winter. Don’t be afraid to stay outside a little longer and admire nature’s beauty alongside man’s best friend.
4) Spring Cleaning. Staying sanitary isn’t just for humans. Make sure not to ignore your dog or cat’s area when cleaning around the house.
5) Find a new favorite toy. Your cat or dog is probably bored with running after the same ball by now. Look for a new toy that you think your dog or cat would enjoy and make those play times are more interesting for you and your pet.
6) Bring your pet to lunch. Soak up one of those sunny spring days at an outdoor table at one of your favorite lunch spots. Your dog will be getting love from every stranger who walks by.
7) Get in the car and go. Let your dog enjoy the wind in their hair and go for a drive. You are sure to see it smile the whole way.
8) Invest in bug protection. This spring will be much more enjoyable for you and your pet if you find the flea and tick prevention that works for you. No use letting those pesky pests ruin your dog or cat’s beautiful spring days. In the Spotlight: Operation Catnip of Gainesville.
