Summer Dog Walking Tips
Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors with your dog, but it's important to take precautions to keep them safe and cool.
Always bring water with you on your walks and offer it to your dog frequently. You may also want to bring a portable bowl so they can drink on the go.
When you do walk your dog during the day, choose shady spots whenever possible. Avoid walking on hot pavement, as it can burn their paws.
Take breaks often, especially if you're walking in hot weather. Find a shady spot where your dog can rest and cool down.
Be aware of the signs of heatstroke in dogs, such as panting heavily, excessive drooling, and vomiting. If you see any of these signs, stop walking immediately and take your dog to a cool place.
Check your dog for ticks and fleas after every walk. Remove any ticks you find immediately and contact your veterinarian if you find any fleas.
Summer is a great time to bond with your dog and enjoy the outdoors together. Just be sure to follow these tips to keep them safe and cool.
