Spring has officially sprung here in the south and in the midst of Spring cleaning and late-night baseball games, it’s time to prepare our pup for a smooth transition into the new season!
While your pup obviously will still need the basics like food, shelter, and regular vet checkups, it’s helpful to have a few extra items on hand to ensure that your pup is healthy and happy with the warmer weather on the horizon.
If you aren’t sure where to start, don’t worry, I have a simple method I use when planning what I will need for my pup once warmer weather arrives. I call it the 4H system.
This system incorporates 4 key themes to keep in mind as you prep for Spring: Hygiene, Hydration, Health, and Happiness.
Keep reading to see how I put the 4H System into action with a couple of my favorite Spring essentials for dogs that every dog owner needs!
Since we have a Siberian Husky, our summer Hygiene routine gets tweaked a little bit since the warmer weather requires Suede to need baths more frequently. The Natural Care+ Odor Neutralizing Activated Charcoal Shampoo for bath time is perfect for Spring baths since it uses activated charcoal and its patented odor-eliminating technology to leave Suede feeling clean and smelling fresh!
It also keeps his skin hydrated and detoxifies his coat which is perfect since preserving Suede’s beautiful coat is extremely important to us!
Another perfect option for spring hygiene is the Natural Care+ Flea & Tick Leave-In Foam. It is very effective in safely killing fleas, flea eggs, ticks, and mosquitoes. The best part is that there are plant-based active ingredients such as peppermint oil and eugenol that kills these pesky pests by contact.
If your pup isn’t a fan of baths – don’t worry! Natural Care+ has Flea and Tick Wipes that are the perfect solution to provide your dog with quick and easy flea and tick protection.
Since Spring weather typically means spending a lot more time outside, it’s important to practice good dog hygiene while you’re out on walks or at the park. That said, these Pioneer Pet Pick Up Bags are an absolute necessity.
They come in an 80 count roll, are leak-resistant and the best part is the easy-to-use drawstring. Long gone are the days of manually tieing up poop bags before disposing of them. The drawstring alone makes these waste bags a must-have! You can get 10% off of these Unscented Pick Up Bags by visiting PioneerPet.com and using the code summer10.
The next ‘H’ in my 4H system is hydration. Having a Siberian Husky in the South can be a recipe for dehydration so we always make sure to keep water on hand for Suede. Be sure to check out my post about how to keep your Siberian husky cool in summer for more tips on this.
Needless to say, hydration is extremely important, and that is why this Pioneer Pet Fountain has been a game-changer. Since Suede is a medium/large dog, we love that it’s an elevated fountain. Not to mention, the fountain has vortex action that pulls down dirt, hair, and other random debris to keep the water clean.

Next up in the 4H system is Health! In addition to regular vet visits, it’s important to ensure that you are providing your pet with extra support. That said, with more daily walks and play in the dog park, your pup may experience a bit of discomfort in their muscles and joints.
Thankfully Natural Care+ has an Aches-PLUS Tasty Chewables to help you ease those aches caused by exercise and increased daily activity. The Aches-PLUS Tasty Chewables are Asprin free and are made with Pineapple Bromelain, Yucca Root, & White Willow Bark to soothe aches and discomfort naturally. Definitely a must-have this Spring!
Last but definitely not least is happiness. While Hygiene, Health, and Hydration are important, a happy dog is an ultimate goal! An easy way to ensure that your pup is happy is to always have fun, high-quality pet toys available for your dog. MultiPet Dog Toys are progressive toys for pets and are sure to keep your pup entertained.
Suede loves the high-pitched sound this adorable latex Ice Cream Truck makes. The size is also perfect for Suede to pick up with his mouth. Multipet also makes the cutest Pacifier Pal dog toy which is complete with a latex pacifier, squeaker, and crinkle. All of the different sounds and textures are perfect for the mental stimulation that dogs need.
Multipet Toys can be found at many local retailers. Be sure to check them out at www.multipet.com
Finally, the eufy Pet Dog Camera is a complete game-changer for those times when you are away from your pup and still want to be able to look after them.
It has a 270-degree rotatable body and AI Tracking to follow your pup and alert you in case they need you! Not to mention, the treat tossing is so much fun with up to a 3ft distance to cheer up your pup while you’re away.
The best part is, that there is no subscription required to enjoy the many features the eufy Pet Dog Camera has to offer. You can check out the eufy Pet Dog Camera here and use code eufypet30 for an extra $10 off from 4/18 to 4/24.
