Our Ten Top Tips for Keeping Cool!

1. Encourage your four-legged friend to stay in shaded areas and away from direct sunlight

2. Keep a paddling pool in the shade for them to splash about in!
This also guarantees lots of tail-wags...!
3. Never leave dogs in cars
Even parked in the shade with the windows open, dogs can become distressed and uncomfortable very quickly. Make sure you always have a plan so your dog isn't left alone in the car or in any other enclosed spaces.

4. Time their outdoor play with the garden sprinklers!
It is important for the enviroment not to consume more water than needed, but if you can time your doggy's outdoor play with your spinklers then this will make for a lot of fun, without being wasteful!

5. Remember regular grooming
 Did you know that matting can trap heat? Regular grooming and/or clipping will help to keep your dog's coat clean and free of knots!

6. Put down damp towels for your canine companion to lie on

7. Sun cream for dogs!
Did you know you can get sun cream for dogs? Even our furry friends are at risk of sunburn if they're not protected, just the same as us humans – especially those with thinner coats. You can pick up specially formulated sun cream for dogs at most pet shops or online! Ask your vet for recommendations.

8. Fill a hot water bottle with cold water
9. Protect your dog's paws from hot surfaces
To avoid hurting your four-legged friend's foot pads, stay away from surfaces like sand and tarmac if they feel hot.
...It is so important to know how to keep dog happy when the temperature is up! We hope our top tips help to keep tails wagging!
With love and tail wags,
