7 Summer Settings Dog Owners Should Avoid

The Hot Heat

Dogs are not designed to take the heat, even for a short time. Bring a portable dog bowl and fresh water wherever you go. You can’t depend on communal dog bowls or kindly strangers. Be extra careful with larger, long-haired dogs. If they begin to show signs of lethargy, heavy panting, or do not seem themselves, leave immediately and get them to a cool place with water.
