8 Spring Dog Grooming Tips #PupPrep4SpringBBxx

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.

Spring is our favorite time of the year. The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer and many flowers are blooming. It’s a great time to spend more time outdoors and enjoying the fresh air with our furry best friends.

Koru Bear and KENZO share dog care tips to keep in mind this spring from their Pup Preparation Box for Spring from BabbleBoxx.

1. Schedule a Vet Visit

Just like humans, dogs need regular vet visits. Dogs age faster than humans, so if you miss even one annual appointment, you may not see your doctor in over 5 years.

Schedule a spring check-up to make sure your dog is in good health. It’s also a good time to ask your vet about how you can take better care of your dog. Both KB and KENZO had their veterinary check up in the spring.

2. Keep Pests Away

The most common seasons for fleas and ticks are spring and summer; May through September. It is important that you have a preventive plan in place to protect your dog against fleas and ticks.

Natural Care+ Fleas & Ticks

Natural Care+ Fleas & Ticks

Using Natural Care+ herbal products is one way to protect your dog from fleas, ticks and serious illnesses. Natural Care+ fights fleas and ticks by using herbal ingredients, such as peppermint oil and eugenol (from clove plants).

Natural Care+ Flea and Drawing Wipes

When used as directed, these wipes are a convenient way to safely and effectively kill fleas, flea eggs, ticks and mosquitoes through contact. For dogs that don’t like baths, these flea and tick wipes are always a quick and easy solution. These ultra-soft wipes also allow targeted application, particularly on sensitive areas, such as around your dog’s ears.

Natural Care+ Fleas & Ticks Leave-in Foam

When used as directed, this no-rinse soft foam safely and effectively kills fleas, flea eggs, ticks and mosquitoes through contact. This bath free flea, tick and mosquito protection is quick and easy to apply, especially between the toes, behind the ears, underarms and the base of the tail.

3. Refreshing bath

KB always likes to roll up smelly spots. Since KB is not a big fan of baths and with his sensitive skin, I make sure he experiences a pleasant, relaxing and soothing bath.

Natural Care+ dog shampoo

I am always looking for good dog shampoo. From my recent research, I’ve read that activated charcoal neutralizes odors, including pet odors.

Natural Care+ Activated Charcoal Odor Neutralizing Dog Shampoo

I am so happy to discover Natural Care+ Activated Charcoal Odor Neutralizing Dog Shampoo, which helps remove difficult-to-remove dirt, grime and odors. This deep cleansing dog shampoo is also formulated with green tea and aloe vera to rehydrate and soothe your dog’s irritated skin.

4. Stay active

KB and KENZO are active golden retrievers. They love to take long walks, run, fetch and swim. KB is aging and experiencing discomfort after playing for a long time. To relieve it, I give daily supplements.

Natural Care+ Aches-PLUS Chewable Tablets

This aspirin-free Natural Care+ Aches-PLUS Chewables provides holistic support for muscles and joints. It is formulated with Pineapple Bromelain, White Willow Bark and Yucca Root, which help naturally relieve dogs’ discomfort caused by exercise.

5. Dog Toys Spring Cleaning

Spring is a great time to do laundry or get rid of dirty and broken toys. Sure, KB and KENZO won’t mind getting new fun toys; specifically I got rid of some toys like their Ultimate Duck dog toys from Multipet.

Multipet Ice Cream Truck and Pacifier Pals Dog Toys

This cute mini MultiPet Ice Cream Truck latex dog toy is approximately 6.5″ and is suitable for dogs that like to pick up toys in their mouth. It has a squeaker that generates a high-pitched sound that KENZO loves!

MultiPet Pacifier Pals

Both KB and KENZO like toys with different sounds and textures. This MultiPet Pacifier Pal Duck dog toy kept them busy, active and excited while playing.

This toy has an interesting design; a latex pacifier squeaks and is attached to a cute plush duckling with a crinkle in the body and a squeaker in the head. Pacifier Pal Duck dog toy is suitable for dogs that like to play, fetch, cuddle or play quietly.

This Multipet dog toy can be purchased from any of your local pet stores. For more information on Multipet products, visit: multipet.com

Watch your dog when you play with a toy

Dog Parents Reminder! Always supervise your dog when playing with toys, especially a new one. Do not allow your dog to continue playing with a broken or damaged toy. Dispose of the toy immediately if it is worn. There is no indestructible dog toy.

6. Pick up your dog’s poop

Be a responsible dog owner and always pick up your dog. Dog poop is poisonous and contains bacteria, viruses, parasites and other harmful components that can affect the health of other dogs and contaminate the water system.

7. Hydrate for good health

Keeping your dog’s hydration in mind is so important to your dog’s overall good health. Many say that a water fountain can encourage your dog to drink more.

This Pioneer Pet Elevated Vortex pet drinking fountain is suitable for both dogs and cats; medium to large size. This dog fountain oxygenates the water and creates a “vortex” that pulls hair or debris out of the bowl. Your dog’s water bowl is always clean. It has an automatic shut-off pump when the water level is too low.
