Ensure your pup has constant access to shady spots both at home and when out and about.
Never leave your dog alone in a hot car as temperatures can quickly reach dangerous levels.
Avoid walking dogs on hot pavement which can burn paws. Do walks in early morning or evening when it’s cooler.
Introduce dogs slowly to water to avoid shocking or scaring them. Always supervise pool time.
Help overheated pups cool off by providing a kiddie pool with cool (not cold) water to lay in.
Brush dogs regularly to remove excess fur and prevent matting which causes skin irritation in heat.
