The sun is brighter, the weather is warmer and baby birds are chirping away! Spring is about to be among us, and we all know what that means: It’s time to clean! 

The natural instinct to clean and prepare our homes for warmer months full of entertaining, celebrating and fun happens every year. This year on March 20th, Spring will officially be here! 

Your pup will be full of excitement and beg to spend more time outside. While you’re breaking out your tank-tops, pastels and dusting the salt off your boots, remember that your cleaning urge can impact your dog.

These ingredients include:

  • Bleach
