Summer Safety Tips

Hot weather can make us all uncomfortable, and it poses special risks for your dog. Keep the following safety concerns in mind as the temperature rises, and follow our tips to keep your dog cool.

Heat Hazards

If your dog is outside on a hot day, make sure he has a shady spot to rest in. Doghouses are not good shelter during the summer as they can trap heat. You may want to fill a child's wading pool with fresh water for your dog to cool off in.

Never leave your dog in a closed vehicle on a hot day. The temperature inside a car can rise to over 100 degrees in a matter of minutes.

Always provide plenty of cool, fresh water.

Avoid strenuous exercise on extremely hot days. Take walks in the early mornings or evenings, when the sun's heat is less intense.

Try to avoid prolonged exposure to hot asphalt or sand, which can burn your dog's paws.

4th of July Safety Tips for Your Furry Friend

4th of July Safety Tips for Your Furry Friend

Fourth of July fireworks are dazzling for people, but not always for dogs. Many dogs are afraid of fireworks and some even develop a phobic response. To help keep your dogs safe this Fourth of July, consider the following tips:

If you’re not sure how your dog responds to fireworks, don’t leave him home alone on the fourth. Dogs with firework phobias can easily panic and injure themselves. You want to be home with your dog to supervise his behavior. July fifth is one of the busiest days for shelters, when people go looking for dogs that escaped in a panic.

If you can’t stay home with your dog, keep him confined and make sure he can’t escape. Close the windows, crank on the A/C and turn up the television or radio to help block outside noise. Then give him a wonderful chew bone to concentrate on.
