The weather is changing, but we are still outside enjoying the last bit of Summer with our pets! Here are some tips to remember as summer comes to a close:

Limit activity during hottest part of day- Take advantage of the cooler parts of the day to spend time outdoors.

Be mindful of your dog’s health- When considering activities for the day be mindful of your pet’s limitations or energy needs and adjust exercise accordingly.

If your dog is older, overweight, has a thick coat or a shortened snout- They are at a much higher risk of developing heatstroke. You may need to take multiple, shorter walks throughout the day with frequent breaks for water in shady areas.
