5 Ways To Beat The Heat With Your Dog This Summer
As the days get hotter and longer, our canine companions need a little extra care to keep cool. Here are the top 5 tips on how to beat the heat with your dog this summer.
1. Keep Them Out of Cars
Going for adventures are a key part of summer – just make sure your dog isn’t suffering along the way. Open the windows, turn the AC on max, and provide them with ample water. And don’t forget, they should never be left alone in the car!
2. Water Everywhere
Head to the beach, run through a river, or even use a sprinkler. Your dog will love the refreshing feel of water on their skin, especially if you can make a game of it.
3. Stay Hydrated
Consuming water is just as important as being around it. Making sure your dog has water at all times will keep them happy and healthy during the hotter months.
4. Freeze Treats
Frozen treats are the number one way of keeping your dog happy while they’re chilling out. You can freeze some chicken broth, vegetables, and fruit mixtures together to create fun new snacks. Be sure to consult with your vet about which fruits and veggies are safe for your dog.
Grooming can keep your dog feeling easy and breezy. For most dogs, the less fur they have, the better. If you can use a proper deshedding brush, you can get out the majority of their loose fur. For some dogs, you’ll want to be sure to get the undercoat as thin as possible too. A thick coat is like wearing a wool sweater on a hot summer day. Not fun!
Keeping your dog happy and healthy in the heat is easy – especially if you follow these 5 simple tips! As always, remember to have fun!
