Product Focus: Summer
During a heat wave, it is vital we keep our dogs cool. We are all feeling the heat at the moment, but with their smaller bodies and fur coats, dogs are particularly susceptible to overheating and even heatstroke.
Help your dogs through the summer with our useful tips and products:
- Offer plenty of water at all times
- Keep blinds and curtains closed with the windows open – this will keep your house much cooler on sunny days
- Never leave a dog in a conservatory in sunny weather as they can heat up rapidly
- Discourage your dog from excessive sunbathing, especially between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
- Exercise your dog in the early morning or in the evening when it is cooler
- Take extra care when travelling – provide water, keep the air temperature cool, and never leave a dog in a parked car
