One of the best things about Autumn are crisp leaves. From hearing them crunch under your feet to watching them change color while they're still on trees, there's a lot to love about Fall foliage.
Doodles love frolicking in the leaves! Summer is a big hit with canines too, but when else can they jump for joy in a multi-colored pile of leaves? Even better—they turn the chore of raking leaves into one big game. A leaf pile also makes the perfect spot for a good game of hide and seek.
It's extremely important to be aware that tick season is not over. While you mostly find ticks in tall grass, they also lurk in the leaves your dog loves to play in. So here's a simple reminder to always be checking your pets, as well as yourself for ticks year round.
Daylight savings time ends on Sunday. Dogs don’t set their routines by the clock that we use as humans to keep on schedule. They have their own circadian rhythm–a biological clock that helps them know when to eat, sleep, go potty, and do everything else in their day. So when humans change the clock it can affect dogs more strongly.
Make sure you ease the effects of your new schedule on your dog. Enjoy the extra hour of sleep, but take steps to reduce your pup’s anxiety. This way you can make the Daylight Saving Time switch a positive experience, rather than a stressful one. And don’t forget to set your clocks back!
