During hot weather, dogs need to be hydrated more than ever. Therefore, it is necessary for their water bowls to be refilled constantly. Also, it is important not to leave dogs outside for long periods of time, or they may be subject to heatstroke. Furthermore, a dog should never be left inside a car in the summer months. Even with a cracked window or the air conditioning on, the inside of a car can get too overheated.
Daily dog walking in the summer months should be done in the early morning or late evening when the temperatures are cooler. Also, walking dogs during this time will prevent their paws from getting burned on the hot pavement. To keep the dog cool and hydrated during the walk, bring along a water bottle.
