Dog Tips: Keep your dog cool
AND when we say cool, we mean sunscreen, flip-flops, and an umbrella COOL! WATERmelon is great to have in the cooler waiting for our pups to enjoy. This will keep them hydrated while outdoors enjoying fun in the sun.
Dogs don’t sweat like us. Instead of sweating all over their body as humans do, they sweat through their paw pads and rely on panting to release heat. Giving your dogs access to shade and a way to cool down like a kiddie pool filled with water or ice is a great way to allow your dogs to safely enjoy the outdoors in warmer months. Monitor them closely during hot weather and bring them inside if they are panting excessively to prevent heat stroke, stress, and dehydration.
