Springing forward into longer, lighter days - hooray!
With the clocks set to Spring Forward into Daylight Saving next weekend, now is the perfect time to think about getting out and about with your dog for longer periods after the short, dark, and gloomy days of Winter.
Here are some simple and easy tips on how to make the most of the longer days…
Pack a picnic!
Everyone loves a picnic, especially dogs! They’re the perfect way to enjoy the Spring sunshine and each other's company. Caboodle daily trays are the perfect picnic accompaniment. Our grab-and-go trays contain a menu of delicious wet and dry food, treats and chews, all of which are pre-measured based on your dog's requirements so you have everything you need for the day without the worry or hassle of raw food, measuring kibble into Tupperware or smelly treats exploding in your pockets!
Enjoy a nice walk!
The most obvious thing to do with your dog is walking, but often over winter the walks have shortened so now is the time to get back into the swing of things! From improved cardiovascular fitness, lower blood pressure, stronger muscles and bones (built up by walking regularly), and decreased stress - walking your dog is a fantastic way to build up your overall fitness level. Walking is also great for your pooch, as it can be a lower-impact way for them to exercise regularly. We always recommend taking some treats with you. Firstly, we’re a big fan of training on the go (check out our recent blog on this), secondly, our low-calorie Caboodle treats are a great way to keep your dog full of energy for their walk without overfeeding them.
Visit somewhere new!
