Ways to Keep Your Pup Active


Spring is here! The days are getting longer, the sun is getting warmer, and it’s the perfect time to shed those winter blues and get active with your furry friend. At d’Tails Pet Spa, we’re all about keeping your dog happy and healthy, including regular exercise. Here are some fun ways to keep your pup active, moving, and grooving this spring.  

Tips to Keep Your Pup Active this Spring

Hit the Park!

Dog parks are an excellent way for your dog to socialize with other pups and burn off some steam. Be sure to choose a park that’s a good fit for your dog’s size and temperament, and remember to keep an eye on them and clean up after them!

Fetch and Frisbee Fun!

Classic games like fetch and frisbee are a surefire way to get your dog’s tail wagging. Find a safe, open space, and get ready for some laughs! There are even frisbees explicitly designed for dogs, made with softer materials that are gentler on their mouths.

Hike it Out!

Spring is a great time to explore the great outdoors with your dog. If you’re lucky enough to live near hiking trails, you can hit the path and take in the scenery together. Just be sure to choose a trail appropriate for your dog’s fitness level, and always bring plenty of water for both of you.

Splish Splash!

Does your dog love the water? If so, a trip to the dog beach or a local doggy pool is a perfect way to cool down on a hot spring day. However, gradually introduce your dog to the water and never force it to swim if uncomfortable.

Brain Training Games!

Mental exercise is just as important as physical exercise for your dog. There are a variety of brain training games and puzzles available that can challenge your dog and keep them mentally sharp. These games can also help to tire out your dog, making them less likely to engage in destructive behaviors.
