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!
