Keep Your K9 Cool During The Summer Months.

How To Keep Your Dog Cool.


It's been really hot lately and it isn't showing any signs of letting up any time soon, I suppose we should be thankful after a long harsh Winter but unfortunately animals can't regulate there body temperature like humans do.

Please make sure there is access to clean fresh drinking water at all times.

Try to keep your dogs inside were it's cooler than being outside, if you've got air conditioning or a fan even better.

Walk your dogs early morning or late evening when the temperature is cooler and the sun has gone down.

A frozen kong or col damp towel placed over your dog can also help in cooling your dog down.

Please remember a hot dog is served on a finger roll with mustard or tomato sauce, please don't cook your dog.

It's sad but a dog in my city just died from being left in a car. It was only 90 degrees F out (it's normally 100+ this time of year) but that's still way too hot. The owner left her dog in the car for 2 hours while she went shopping.... I just don't get it.
