How to Deal With the Summer Heat With Your Dog

By Sheilah Villari

  • Exercise your pooch during the coolest parts of the day, dawn and dusk.
  • Avoid Pavement during the warmest part. The sidewalk can get extremely hot burn their paws.
  • Cut their hair short and keep from having heavy layers of fur insulating heat.
  • Never leave you dog in a car no matter how long.
  • Always have water and take frequent breaks if it looks like they are getting tired or panting too much.
