Does your dog enjoy the water? Keep your dog cool in the summer by using a plastic kiddie pool out in the yard. They’re inexpensive, too. I got ours for about 4 bucks at my local grocery store.
Water games are an excellent way to tire your dog out.
You don't have to worry about your dog overheating if you play for a longer period of time. Also, swimming requires a lot of exertion from dogs so it will leave them tired and happy!
Fun Water Games
Don't know what to do? Here are some great ideas below on how to play with your dog in the water:
Play in the sprinklers.
Hose him down.
Give him a bath.
Play water tag.
Splash in the kiddie pool (or a more durable pool made especially for dogs) with water and let your dog jump in and out to his heart's content.
