Hi, it's Steve Pelletier, and today I'm gonna talk about how to keep your dog from overheating in the summer. The fact of the matter is, is that unlike humans, dogs do not sweat. So they don't have a natural cooling mechanism. You need to be really careful of the summer time when the temperature gets hot outside. I'm gonna give you three or four tips to show you how to keep them cool and still active throughout those hot summer months. First thing you should do is exercise your dog early in the morning before it gets hot. Depending on where you live, exercising in the evening is not an option because it still could be very warm and muggy, so try to plan your days taking your dog out early in the AM. I like to use an inside workout on extremely hot days I can use a dog treadmill, I can use other kinds of equipment, but keep the dog inside in an air conditioned facility, this way they can get a nice workout in but not overheat. The third thing I do is I use this K9 fit vest product which has cooling packs that insert into the vest. This keeps your dog cool while they're exercising and enables them to be outside when getting their exercise in at the same time. And the last thing is make sure that your dog is hydrated properly. This is important at all times, but extra important during the summer months. I like to use a special bowl called Torus bowl, which keeps the water cool and provides it to your dog on demand. So remember, it's really important to keep your dog cooler in the summer time. Use those tips, and you'll be able to keep them safe and active throughout the hot summer months.
