Summer weather can be a trying time for your pooch, as the hot weather can be very uncomfortable for them. We’ve gathered some of the top tips for dogs in summer to keep them happy:
Exercise and walk your dog early in the morning or later in the day
Ideally, after the sun has set is the perfect time to walk your dog. The coolest hours of the day are preferable for you and your dog to exercise. During this time of the year it is better to avoid midday walks, as the pavement might get too hot and hurt your furry friend’s paws. A good test is to hold the back of your hand to the tarmac – if you can keep it touching the tarmac for 7 seconds, it’s safe to walk your pooch. If not, you’ll run the risk of burning their paws.
