During the hot summer months it’s extremely important to help your pets stay cool! Here are some tips for pet summer safety!
- Pets should always have plenty of cool, fresh water and should be taken inside if temperatures rise too much.
- When taking your dogs for a walk make sure to check the temperature of the sidewalk or pavement! Place the back of your hand against the pavement and hold it there for 11 seconds. If you are uncomfortable, your dog will be, too!
- Your pooch can even test out your pool! Check out these swimming safety tips for dogs, such as teaching them to get out on their own.
