Most days stay above 90 degrees here in Texas and we have to be sure we work hard to keep our Precious safe and hydrated. I hope these five tips help you!

Keep dogs safe1. Always have water handy – During the Summer months you need to be sure to always keep the water bowl filled and if possible, even fill up an extra one outside if your dog likes to hang out back there. I actually fill our outside bowl up with ice in the morning and early evening.

If you don’t have an outdoor water bowl think about other ways to keep your dog hydrated. The Chuckit! Hydro toys offer an engaging and fun option to maintain hydration even at play.

2. As it gets warmer, only exercise in the morning or evening – It is generally cooler in the mornings and evenings so it is best to exercise and train your dog during those times. Try to avoid peak day when it can be hottest. Keep in mind that keeping your dogs safe is a priority, so stay in well-lit areas or think about getting Petmate’s Glow in the Dark collars and leashes.
