Hot Dogs!

May 23, 2017

After what seems like forever, it’s FINALLY starting to warm up, and that means lighter nights, and longer walks! Summer weather is fantastic for really enjoying some time outside together with our dogs, but it also comes with some extra factors we need to consider. The Dogs’ Trust has put together this handy list of what to remember as things hot up:

 

  • “Don't excessively walk your dog

  • Avoid walking your dog at the hottest times of the day - often morning or later in the evenings can be cooler

  • Always take plenty of water with you when out with your dog

  • Make sure the dog has shade to cool off in, either inside or when out

  • Take your dog to the groomers and keep their fur clipped

  • Dogs can get sunburned - especially white dogs or those with little hair so try and keep them out of direct sun

  • Think twice about any car trips with your dog - avoid congested roads or busy times of day when they could overheat in the car if you are caught up in traffic

  • If driving with your dog, plan your journey considering cooler times of the day and places to take breaks

  • Don't leave your dog in a car - as temperatures rise, dogs overheat quickly and leaving them for as little as 20 minutes could prove fatal”
