How do you cool down during the summer? While you have the option to dip in the pool, relax in the shade, or treat yourself to an ice cream cone, your dog doesn’t have the same option. And when summer temperatures rise into the eighties, you don’t want your pup to overheat. Give them a little TLC. Follow these tips to take the ruff out of summer for your furry friend:
1. Find some shade
You have your beach umbrella; your dog should have a large tree or covered patio area. If you’re looking hopelessly around your backyard, don’t worry, give this canopy a try.
2. Give them fresh water
Would you want to drink that water bottle you found in your hot car? Your pet doesn’t either. Keep your pet hydrated by refreshing their water bowl throughout the day, and if you want to give them a special treat, add a couple of ice cubes!
3. Get rid of their extra hair
Think of all of their extra hair as your winter coat—would you wear it to the pool? Of course not. Give your dog their summer body with a fresh groom.
4. Consider a pair of puppy shoes
We all know the feeling of burning your feet on a sidewalk or blacktop. Don’t let your pup suffer the same fate! Carry your dog with you when you walk on hot surfaces, or invest in a pair of puppy shoes.
5. Let them chill out inside
Keep your pup comfortable inside your home during the hottest hours. When you have an air conditioning unit from Heating Specialties, you’re putting your pet in the best hands.
