Keeping your dog cool in the heat


Keep your dog cool in the summer!

As these hot summer days are approaching, keep in mind that our dogs are heating up too! Some ways we can try to cool our dogs off are by providing a kiddie pool for them so they can get their paws (where their sweat glands are) wet to cool them off.  You can also put a cold, wet towel on their belly since their bodies do cool from the bottom up and do not push your dogs to exercise on very hot days, which can lead to heat stroke.  Dogs that are older, overweight or may have heart or lung ailments are more likely to suffer from heat stroke than younger dogs that are in more better shape.

Always remember to provide fresh, clean water at all times. During the hotter days, they tend to drink more water to cool off so remember to check and add water more often.

Happy water play!!
