How To Take Care Of Your Dog During Summer

It's summer time and your dog is ready. Are you ready? Find out if you meet the requirements.


Yay, it's summer! Finally some sun and nice weather. Oh, no, did you forget it's the hottest time of the year? No, we don't mean hottest because of the light clothing and people in bathing suits. Summer is the season that can get hella hot, temperature vice. We, the humans, take summer's heat okay. Yeah, it's pretty hot, but it's tolerable. Our fuzzy friends aren't that happy. Dogs need extra care during summer so they don't get sick. Dog owners need to learn how to take good care of their pets, especially to learn the breed's specs. Here's a little summer guide to help them with that!

Water!

Bring water bottles to your walks. As much as you need to be hydrated, your dog needs it too; especially if you're taking long walks or you two jog together. If carrying two water bottles is a problem for you, then consider this: a) two water bottles equal two dumbells! b) a backpack or a gym bag is always a handy solution. c) there are special dog vests that have storage space so your dog can carry its own water.

Food

We all eat less in the summer, right? Well, a dog should too! Eating a full meal twice a day will boost up their body temperature, and that's not good. Consider feeding your dog once a day; in the morning or in the evening. They should eat light dog food. Being overweight during these hot months isn't a good thing. Your dog can develop a serious heart condition which can lead to other health problems.

Shade

Isn't it too obvious? You can't leave your dog out in the sun. You simply can't; that's abusing! Get your dog inside the house during the day or build a shelter. Either way, they need their shade. What would you do if someone tied you in the backyard and left you out in the sun? You wouldn't be happy, would you? Now, think about it next time your dog is outside.

More water, please!

Dogs love water... or hate. Sometimes you just gotta bath them! When a dog is hot there's a big chance it may collapse. That's why keeping their body temperature normal is highly important. Now, you just can't throw your dog in the pool; it has to be done gently! Do it in a tub or any shallow water surface. Placing a small dog pool is another extra idea. A dog who loves water would have so much fun cooling in it!

Coat

No one wears their coat in the summer, right? Well, dogs do! You can't shave some breeds otherwise they would look ridiculous. That's why a trim here and there is necessary to keep the coat nice, tidy, and to help your Fido stay a bit cooler. Some breeds like the poodle or corgi can be shaved. They will look funny, but, hey, they won't be warm.
