Beaches

Do not force your dog to go into the water. Salt water can irritate their paws and infect their ears. The dog may get very hot so spray them with regular water before returning home.

 

Car Rides

Do not let your dog stick its head outside the window because dust particles may irritate its eyes and they may try to jump out

 

Fleas and Ticks

Dogs can pick up a lot of ticks while outdoors. A vet can recommend various sprays, oils, powers, or bath preparations.

 

Jogging

Jogging in the heat may damage a dogs paws. If you have an elderly dog extensive jogs even fatal. So try taking jogs early in the morning or late at night so the pavement is not as hot.

 

Leaving Dogs in Cars

Leaving a dog in the car may be life threatening, even if the window is open or the car is in the shade. Temperatures can reach 160 degrees within minutes.

 

Vaccinations

Make sure your dog has all his vaccination shots because warm weather brings out animals with diseases

 

Water

Make sure your dogs water bowl is ALWAYS full with water. Without water your dog might receive heat exhaustion
