Summer is the perfect time for letting dogs play outside, taking them for walks and spending time with them outdoors. Sometimes, however, the summer sunshine can be a bit too much for dogs to handle. When temperatures rise, it’s important to keep dogs cool. The Puppy Store knows just what it takes to keep dogs cool and happy all summer long, and they’re offering tips for pet owners.
Dogs naturally keep themselves cool by panting, but sometimes when it is extremely hot and humid that is not enough. When they get too hot, dogs will pant even more. If pet owners notice their dog panting heavily, they should bring their dog to a shaded area or indoors so that he or she can cool off.
Staying cool also means staying hydrated. Fresh, cool water should be available to dogs at all times. Dogs should be drinking plenty of water every day, but in hot weather, this is even more crucial.
Dogs should also always have access to shelter from the sun. Prolonged exposure to the sun can have harmful effects, such as exhaustion and even sunburn. It’s important for dogs take breaks from being outside so they don’t get worn out or worse.
A great option for keeping dogs cool is a pool. Many dogs love the water, so a kiddie pool may be a great investment. Not only will the dog enjoy it, but he’ll stay cool as well.
The best way to keep dogs cool this summer is to keep a close eye on them, and if it’s too hot out, get them to a cooler area. To learn more, contact The Puppy Store today by calling 516-415-2909 or visiting http://www.thepuppystoresale.com/.
