Keeping Fido Cool on Mutt Monday

by Carrie Boyko, CEB
The heat is on. Pet lovers all over are struggling to get their dogs out for walks during hours that are not sweltering. Be sure to be aware of the temperatures of the pavement or asphalt as well. Cement or concrete are cooler than asphalt for your dog's pads.

I've linked up some archived posts offering tips on keeping your dog cool and safe from overheating during outdoor walks and other activities. Keep in mind that walking the indoor perimeter of your local pet superstore could be an option on particularly hot days.

Its so true, this heat is awful for our dogs. Faster walks and lots more water.

This is really fantastic and I can't wait to share! I volunteered with a rescue today and we went on a lengthy pack walk. I had to keep reminding myself of the importance of keeping our dogs cool, hydrated and taking care of their paws. Thanks for the great resources!

I'm a day late to the Mutt Monday party, but yesterday was a holiday here, so I'm using that as my excuse. Can't wait to check out all the great posts!
