Tips for Keeping Your Dog Cool All Summer

The official summer months may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean that the heat has let up. So what’s the best way to keep your dog cool during the summer? Keep reading to find out!

1. Wet towel or cooling pad

With the ground soaking up the sun’s rays, there aren’t very many cool places outside for your dog to lie down. That’s where a cooling pad or wet towel comes in. There are many cooling pads on the market that will take the body heat from your dog and disperse it, cooling them down. However, laying down a wet towel for your dog to lay on is a cheaper and effective alternative.  

2. Kiddie pool

Kiddie pools aren’t just for kids. They’re a great cool off spot for all dogs since their shallow depth won’t endanger puppies or small dogs.Who’s ready for a pool party?

3. Sprinkler

Do you remember playing in the lawn sprinkler as a child? Running up and jumping through the rows of water used to be the highlight of the summer. Who says your dog wouldn’t enjoy the same thing? Turn on the sprinkler and watch your pup burn some energy chasing those streams of water. Not to mention keeping cool! 

4. Water on walks

If it’s hot outside, there is a great chance for your pet to get dehydrated. This is especially true if they’re exercising. When you take your dog for a walk, pack a bottle of water and a collapsible bowl to give your dog a drink. Trust me, Rover will thank you!

5. Grooming

Making sure your dog is properly groomed for the summer months is a must for many breeds. Any dog built for cold weather has a thick double coat. By shaving them down, you can minimize the chance of overheating. For all other dogs, getting a trim will also feel much more comfortable.
