How to Prepare Your Dog for a Warm Summer?

During the summer, people can be seen going outside to take advantage of the pleasant weather and sunshine. However, if you own a dog, you might be concerned about taking them outside when the temperature is high.

You can, thankfully, bring them along on practically any expedition so long as you remember to take some basic safety measures first. See the next section for some professional advice on preparing your canine companion for the summer months.

How to Prepare Your Dog for a Warm Summer?

Keep Up with Grooming

When the temperature is hot, it is more vital than ever to groom dogs so that their coats may remain short and comfortable. This is something that should be done regularly. This is especially important to keep in mind with dogs who already have very long and unruly coats that require frequent trimming. Please don't miss your scheduled sessions for grooming.

Combating the Effects of Dehydration

Hydration is vital during any time of year, but especially during the summer, and it is necessary whether you are inside or outside.

You may take a few different approaches to ensure that your pup has a steady supply of water to drink. An automated water dispenser/ fountain is one of the solutions that are the simplest and most easy to use to ensure water does not become stagnant. 

Of course, always remember to take a bottle of water for you to drink, and a bottle and a bowl for your dog to drink from!

Plan your walks

Your dog still needs exercise during the summer, however any exercise should be planned carefully. Try and avoid taking your dog out in the peak of the sun. Early morning or evening walks will be cooler and more pleasant for your best friend.

Please, don’t leave your dog in a parked car alone

Avoid leaving your dog in a parked car, even if the window is cracked, the glass magnifies the heat and temperatures rise quickly! If you have to stop, take them with you or make sure someone else is in the car with the A/C on, providing access to water and monitoring them
