There’s nothing like hanging out with our beloved pets outdoors, playing catch, running through the park, hiking up trails, taking a leisurely stroll, or watching them swat after fluttering butterflies flying through the air. But, when the temperature starts to rise during the summer months, our fur babies risk overexposure to the sun and high temperatures even more than we do.

Whether you have a dog, cat, or another domesticated animal, it’s important to take the necessary steps to keep them happy and cool.  So be sure to dog-ear these 5 purrific tips to save their day.

5 Tips To Keep Your Pets Cool:

Paw Print Icon Reduce Outdoor Playtime
Limit activity to early morning and late evening and shorten their exercise time according to the extremes in your local temps. Don’t forget to avoid an uncomfortable burn and stay away from hot asphalt and concrete by keeping their paws on the soft and grassy green. 
Paw Print Icon Hydrate Inside And Out
Be sure to have all water bowls filled to the top and take fresh hydrating liquids to quench their thirst when enjoying the great outdoors. To keep their internal body cool, apply a wet towel to their neck or purchase a vest that can be chilled for their comfortable pleasure.
Paw Print Icon Update Or Ditch The Dog House
These safe houses trap heat, so unless you have out-fitted your dog’s home away from home with all of the necessary cooling accessories, it’s best to seal the entrance for the season until we have lower temperatures. You can create another safe haven for them with an indoor crate filled with their favorite blanket and toys. When your pets are enjoying outdoor time, be sure to have ample shade available so they can relax and chill.
Paw Print Icon Soak It Up
Include water sports in your pet’s summer activities. They offer the perfect solution to cooling off on a hot day, from sprinklers, swimming, and kiddie pools to beaches and rivers. What’s more, pet owners can get in on the fun and do their own cooling off too.
Paw Print Icon Refreshing Treats
For your loveable dogs, quench their thirst with popsicles in a variety of yummy flavors, from watermelon to peanut butter. To keep your fancy feline extra chill, delight them with natural ice cream, shaved ice, or with frozen tuna snacks. You can add to the fun and make human versions of your favorite refreshers so you can all enjoy a sweet summer bite that’s sure to wet your whistles.
