How To Keep Your Dog Cool in Summer

watermelon dogIt has been so hot here in Charlotte, NC since the beginning of June. All of July has been extremely hot with a lot of bad storms, I know most of us are waiting for August to pass by so we can move into fall! Since it has been so hot I recommend getting a small put pool from Target, Wal-Mart, Pet smart or Pet Supply Stores and fill the pool with ice. If you have a bigger dog with a lot of fur they will most likely be thrilled and won’t be able to wait to jump into this fun new doggy pool you created.

Many people keep their pets fur groomed very short in the summer months to help keep them cool, however remember pets sweat through their paws and tongue so make sure their paws don’t overheat and check them for cracks. The sidewalks and pavements are so hot many pets paws become red, cracked and inflamed. If your dog has cracked, red or swollen paws here is a product to help with that.

Musher’s Secret Paw Protection Natural Dog Wax provides the ultimate paw protection in any season without the need for uncomfortable dog boots. Your pup will be able to walk without hurting his paws on icy or hot sidewalks, sandy beaches, hard pavement or snow-filled walkways. Musher’s Secret forms a breathable, dense barrier to protect your dog’s paws from the elements in even the most extreme weather conditions. That means no more irritating sand, ice or snow between the paws or stuck to the furry paw pads. This moisturizing formula is a blend of 100% pure natural waxes, including white and yellow beeswax and vitamin E that not only protects but also soothes cracked pads and paws.

Another tip is to make some natural frozen treats for your dog. Here is one recipe I recommend, it has all natural ingredients that your pup will love!
