Spring is here ( maybe)

The long period of icy cold, snowy weather has finally abated here on Long Island.  The dogs are just as antsy as we are and are much more prone to lose themselves in scenting and hunting.  All of those smells that have been hidden under the snow for 2 months are filling the air for the dogs. As a result there have been many reports of lost dogs .Dogs are taking it into their own paws to get out and about. I believe that the spring weather and smells really inspires dogs to move around more.  The best strategy to combat this urge to hunt and move is take longer, more sniff filled walks.  Skip the gym and go walk your dogs!  Also start putting on topical flea and tick repellant yesterday!

Spring is finally here!

It has been a long, brutal winter here on Long Island.  The only good thing about that is there are no ticks and fleas yet.....  In celebration of that and the warmer weather this is the perfect time of year to get your dog out into the wild places that you do not want to go when the ticks arrive.  So get out to that woodland trail and enjoy no, before the bugs arrive!  Your dog will love exploring some new territory and you can use the the adventure to practice you re-call skills with your dog.
