Punxsutawney Phil has spoken, and spring is here. After a long, cold winter, it’s time to get back out and active with your best buddy. Bring in the new season with fun finds for your pup. Here are 3 must-have pet products for the spring.
1. De-Shedding Brushes
Spring cleaning is a time to get your home in order, but it can be hard when your pet is following behind you shedding his winter coat. Double-coated breeds like huskies, shepherds and mountain dogs lose the most fur during spring. While their insulated undercoat keeps them warm during the colder months, springtime calls for a lighter coat in preparation for the summer heat. De-shedding pet products drastically reduce the amount of rogue fur around your home. The earth is heating up and so is your dog. Luckily, regular weekly de-shedding can help keep your pet cool even on the hottest days.
FURminator de-shedding brushes claim to reduce shedding up to 90 percent and are designed to be gentler on your pet’s skin. These brushes come in different sizes for breeds with short, medium and long coats.
De-shedding brushes do more than a regular brush by helping get rid of dead fur in the undercoat. They can also:
- Keep your pet’s coat soft and clean
- Prevent tangles and matted fur
- Distribute natural oils and prevent the build-up of grease
2. Food Puzzle Toys
Is your dog chewing you out of house and home? Rubber food toys may channel that energy into a more positive outlet and keep your dog mentally engaged in the process. Food toys are like puzzles for your pup and can slow down his eating while he is trying to get the food out. You can hide kibble, small treats, peanut butter and more in these toys and your dog loves trying to get the prize.
Kong puzzle toys offer a heavy-duty solution for dogs that love to chew. They are popular among pet owners for their resilience.
Rubber food toys are usually versatile and can be used in several ways:
- For Teething Puppies
- For Anxiety
- For Fetch
Whether your pup suffers from anxiety or boredom, these pet products will help him pass the time in a less destructive way.
The weather in spring is great for outdoor adventure but before you hit the trails, make sure you are keeping your pet’s paws protected. Hiking can be fun, but the sharp edges leave your pet at risk for painful scrapes and cuts. Even seemingly calm trips to the beach can irritate your dog’s paws as the fine grains of sand can cause very small scrapes that add up with time. A good pair of booties will keep your pet's paws dry and safe during this rainy season.
My Busy Dog creates sturdy booties available in the largest range of sizes that stay on your dog’s feet and keep his paws dry and warm.
You can use booties in virtually any location or weather and keep your pet comfortable:
- Rocky mountains
- Hot pavement
- Icy sidewalks

- Beach trips
- Hardwood floors
