The summer months bring later evenings, exciting outside activities, and hot days. Here are five tips to keep in mind for your dog during those hot days:

  • Plan to take walks during the cooler times of the day, like early morning or late evening hours.

  • Ensure your dog has access to shade when outside.

  • Make sure your dog has unrestricted access to fresh water.

  • When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces, like asphalt.

  • Never leave your dog in the car.
