Shady Area

Leave dogs in a shady area, bearing in mind the movement of the sun as the day passes.

Fresh Water

Provide fresh water daily. Clam shell pools and doggy ice treats/kongs/home alone toys are great fun, keeps them cool & provides mental enrichment.

Exercise!

Exercise your dog early & late in the day. All dogs, especially flat faced breeds, can overheat quickly!

When You Are Away

When you are not home, leave your dog or puppy in a long term confinement area, such as a crate or single room in-doors with easy to clean floors, bathroom, kitchen, or utility room.

Every Hour

Every hour on the hour, say “let’s go pee and poop” (or your potty instructions) and, with your dog on leash, hurry it outside where you want your dog to go.
