Keep your 4 legged friend cool in summer
When the warm weather arrives, we all look for methods to stay cool. Dogs also suffer the consequences of high temperatures and can overheat very quickly. That’s why it’s important to help your pet stay cool and make sure that they are coping okay.
Just like we take care of ourselves and our family, we must take good care of our pets and include basic pet care in our daily routine. If you are reading this, it means that your dog is part of your family. Here are some super tips to keep your four legged friend comfortable and happy in the summer.
- Adjust your walking routine: Walk your dog early in the morning or in the evening when the ground is cooler. This will not only protect their paws but be more comfortable for them.
- Keep them hydrated: Dogs need to drink plenty of water during warm weather to prevent dehydration. Providing lots of fresh, clean water is essential, whether at home, in the garden or out on walks.
- Groom your dog regularly: Grooming them can help them regulate their temperature. As well as regular blow-drying to get rid of shedding fur, consider safely clipping it shorter to allow more air to cool the skin’s surface.
- Get them wet: Playing with water is a great way to keep your pup cool in the summer and it’s a lot of fun. Try setting up a sprinkler or a shallow paddling pool in the garden to refresh them while they play.
