Our pups are like our family members: they’re there to see us after a long day at the office and are always there to comfort us through tough times. While our four-legged pals are like our family members, they can’t always communicate to us the same way our human family does. That’s why it’s important to make sure we’re paying even more attention to them during the summer months. Here are some ways that you can make sure your dogs are safe during the warmer season.
Always have water – This is important no matter what season it is, but making sure you have water wherever you go is essential in keeping your dog safe during summer. If you’re traveling, make sure you have a bowl and water with you that are easy to carry. If you’re leaving them at home for a while, make sure their water dish is filled to the brim with cool, fresh water. Remember – they wearing a fur coat during the hottest time of the year and cannot take it off, so water is crucial to staying cool.
Tread lightly on pavement – As a general rule of thumb, don’t walk your dog on hot pavement if it is too hot for you to put your hand on it. Your dog’s feet are extremely sensitive and can blister if they’re on a long walk where the ground is extremely hot. Additionally, this could contribute to heat stroke since your pup’s paws are being directly exposed to hot temperatures.
