As the weather warms up, it's important to take precautions to keep your dog happy and healthy. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Be mindful of the weather: Dogs can overheat very quickly and can suffer from heat stroke. During very hot and humid days, it's best for Fido to be active outside during the early morning hours from
Watch out for their feet: Pavement and asphalt get incredibly hot on summer days and can quickly burn your pup's feet. If it's too hot for your hand, then it's too hot for their paws! To be safe, only take your dog running or walking on dirt trails, grass, or sand. Stop periodically during your outings to check their paws for burns or cuts.
Keep a watchful eye and hydrate: Make sure Fido has had a chance to drink water before going outside. Take a portable water bowl if you plan to spend a lot of time in the sun. Also, be sure to check on your dog for signs of pain or suffering from heat exhaustion.
Lather up: Believe it or not, dogs are susceptible to sunburns. If you're taking them outside on a sunny day, be sure to apply sunscreen to both yourself and Fido if your dog has shorter hair or is a lighter color.
