Frying eggs on the sidewalk?  Here are some ways to help you and your pets enjoy the sun without melting!

  • It’s all about the water!  Play in the sprinkler, bust out the wading pool, or take a dip in the lake.  Always make sure your pet is supervised and rinse him/her off with clean water after swimming.
  • Enjoy a frozen treat.  Check out special doggy confections like Frosty Paws, make a giant popsicle by freezing treats or toys into a huge ice cube, or head to your local ice cream joint- many have items on the menu for dogs.
  • Pack a picnic.  Put together some of (both of your) favorite treats and find a shady spot to enjoy.  Don’t forget a bowl and fresh water for your pet.
  • Outsmart the sun.  Head out for a walk or visit the dog park before the sun fully comes up or at twilight during the coolest parts of the day.

It may be hot out there, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the great outdoors! If you have any questions, please give us a call!
