Summer Dog Walking Tips


Choose a time of day when it is cooler, such as early morning or late evening. Avoid walking your dog during the hottest part of the day.

Bring water

Always bring plenty of water for your dog to drink.


 Keep your dog off of hot pavement, sand, or other surfaces.


If your dog has short hair, consider having them wear a hat to protect their head from the sun.


Be aware of the signs of heatstroke, such as excessive panting, vomiting, and lethargy. If you see any of these signs, take your dog to a cool place and give them water immediately.

 Have fun!

With a little planning, you can keep your dog safe and comfortable during the hot summer months and still have a great time together.

Stay Hydrated

Make sure your dog has plenty of fresh water to drink, especially on hot days. You can also freeze water bottles to make them more refreshing.
