Keeping Dogs Cool in Hot Weather

Keeping Dogs Cool in Hot Weather

  • Avoid taking your dog for as many walks as you normally would.
  • Walks in the morning or evening are best (and if there’s a stream for them to splash about in, even better!)
  • If they’re out in the garden, be sure to give them shade to lie down in
  • Be sure to keep one room of the house well-aired and cool
  • If your pup has light fur or is missing hair in one spot, consider getting some hypo-allergenic suncream
  • Make sure they have plenty of access to water
  • Give them an ice pack or wet towel to lie on
  • Bring a collapsible water bowl on long walks
  • Never EVER leave your dog in the car, even if it’s for a short time.
  • Get them a shallow, cool paddling pool – plus it’s super cute!
  • If they have thick fur, why not give them a haircut and help them cool down easier?
  • Dogs paws can burn on hot pavement. If you can’t keep your bare skin on the pavement for more than 5 seconds, it’s too hot.
  • Keep an eye on them while outside, if they get warm they may try and drink any liquid they come across in the garden
