Have lots of hydration available like water bowls with large floating Ice – try filling and freezing an old plastic ice cream tub with water and throw in some of your dog’s favorite balls or toys to make it fun while it melts.
Spraying your pooch with a fine mist of water or soaking a towel and rubbing his fur down, will be a welcome reprieve on a hot day.
Putting your feet in water will help cool both humans and animals – the water doesn’t need to be ice cold – just a few inches and place your pooch in and pet him as he enjoys the cool – hop in while your at it if you are hot too – it works fast at cooling you down.
Yard sales are great for picking up a kid’s pool – grab one for your dog and he will love it.
Please remember animals can get heat stroke – make sure your pets do not have prolonged exposure to the sun – get them in the shade and please don’t leave unattended pets in vehicles!
