With summer upon us, those scorching days will be hitting their peak so I thought I’d pass on some ‘cool’ ideas for your canine companion.

A dog’s temperature is supposed to be about 102 F and since they can’t sweat it really doesn’t take too much for dogs to overheat. You definitely want to make sure your pooch has plenty of fresh cool water and someplace cool and shady to escape the heat. I know my two prefer the AC vents themselves. But then I’m sure I’ve mentioned at least once or twice that they’re completely spoiled! 😀

NEVER, EVER, EVER leave your dog in the car when it’s hot! It takes only minutes for a car to heat up to killing temps for a dog. If you check the news you will see story after story of people being cited and even arrested for animal cruelty for leaving their dogs in cars and summer is just beginning. It’s cruel and it’s illegal!!
