It’s summertime! If you could, you’d stay to stay indoors until autumn to evade the scorching heat, but… your dog still needs to be walked even when it’s hot. Here are eight tips to keep your furry friend safe when stepping outside during warm weather.
If your dog’s normal walking route doesn’t provide much cover from the sun, consider changing courses. Try to find a walking trail that’s lined with trees, or plan a new route that includes more shady spots. This is also a good opportunity to switch things up, as dogs can get bored walking the same route day in and day out. So not only do you avoid the sun, but your pooch will also get to experience new sights, sounds, and smells.
