Keep Your Dog Safe From The Heat

With the weather warming up, it's so important that we take extra precautions to keep our pets safe.  I came across a great article about caring for your dog in the desert heat.  These are the highlights of the article.

  • Have a dog as in inside pet, where she can keep cool in her air-conditioned home during hot summer days.

  • If your dog must be kept outside, there needs to be a dark shady place. Shade from a tree is NOT enough. I also suggest a misting system to reduce the temperature just a bit.

  • Make sure your dog always has a supply of clean water, in a dish that can not be tipped over.

  • If your dog likes to swim, access to your swimming pool is a good idea.  Just be sure your dog is trained to know where and how to exit the pool (pool steps).  Also, remember that a puppy could drown in your pool!

  • Only walk your dog in the early morning hours, or at least an hour after the sun has gone down for the night.

  • Dogs get sunburned, so keep them out of the sun, and don't shave them too short.

  • Do NOT let your dog travel in the back of a pickup bed.  They will burn their feet.

  • Do NOT leave your dog in the car, not even with the windows cracked.
