1. Never ever leave your dog in the car!

We all know that the temperature inside a car is hot in the summer; however, do you know that at 70 degrees on a sunny day, the temperature in a car could be up to 104 degrees after a half hour? According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “when temperatures outside range from 80 degrees to 100 degrees, the temperature inside a car parked in direct sunlight can quickly climb between 130 to 172 degrees”. Even though you park in the shade and will just leave for a while, you should take your dog with you. Dogs and cats cannot sweat as well as us; thus, they can suffer from the hot condition in the car.

2. Keep them hydrated inside and outside!

Water is seriously important for dogs in the summer. You need to prevent dehydration all the time. Providing unrestricted access to fresh and cool water can cool down from the inside. One important thing for dogs is that they cool from the bottom up. Don’t forget to spray the paws and stomach! If your dog is playing in the garden, you could put a wet tower in the shade, so that your puppy’s paws and stomach will cool down.

3. Try to use doggie boots!

We wear shoes all the time to protect ourselves. It will be great if you use doggie boots for your dogs. It’s not difficult to find doggie boots in a pet supply store. The ground’s heat is seriously high in the summer, especially on roads which are made of cement and asphalt. A useful way to protect your puppy is to give them doggie boots.

Bonus Tip: Have fun with your puppy.

The sun is shining. Take advantage of the nice weather and take your dog on more walks. Enjoy the sunset together. Play in the water together. Have fun while the weather is nice.
