Dogs play cool as temperatures rise
Maybe you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but we sure could learn a thing or two from man’s best friend as the mercury rises.
When it comes to cooling off in the baking heat that many of us have enjoyed, these pooches have the perfect paw-friendly solution.
Rex and Daisy were captured wading as much of the UK relished the soaring temperatures.
Alongside their companions at award-winning dog daycare Bruce’s in Surrey, the dogs lived their best life, cooling off in the pool and enjoying frozen treats.
Bruce’s shared some tips for keeping our pooches cool when the sun is shining:
This one is super obvious but also the most important. Make sure your dog drinks plenty of water and stays hydrated.
2 fresh carpets and coats
Invest in a good cool mat or coat and it will help keep your dog’s body temperature at a healthy level, allowing him to play in the sun for longer.
3 shadow breaks
If you walk or let him run in the garden, make sure there are shaded areas where your dog can stop and take a break without direct sunlight.
If you can, choose a walking route that has a body of water your dog can swim in safely, or offer him a paddling pool in the backyard when you get home.
5 frozen treats and ice cubes
Frozen treats or even just ice cubes are a tasty treat for your dog that will help keep him cool.
