Does Your Golden Retriever Get Spring Fever?

If you live in an area where there is snow in the winter, you may have an idea of what I mean.  When the weather turns warm, and the snow starts to melt, all kinds of new smells come to life for your dog.  Perhaps they also sense our mood changing with the new season.  Whatever the reason, every dog I’ve owned has experienced “spring fever”.

"Spring" ..before the digging began...

“Spring” ..before the digging began…

My last golden, Logan, who never wandered far on our unfenced acre, would catch a scent and be gone for hours.  My dad and I would circle the concession road, and eventually he would come running the the vehicle, covered in mud and smiling from ear to ear.

Tucker likes to dart around with the zoomies for what seems like a lifetime and then roll around in the grass.  Mind you,  he does the same thing in the snow, but he has a fenced yard, so doesn’t have the opportunity to go on a forbidden adventure.

Even older dogs have a tendancy to get an extra “spring” in their step (pun intended) when the buds start to form on the trees.

What does your dog do in the springtime?

  1. My three dogs definitely get spring fever. What’s really sad is during the spring rains when they stare out the windows and heave big sighs 😉
