With record temperatures around the country, it is important to keep your dogs cool. Gresham Animal Hospital would like to help everyone keep their pets safe this summer. Read our Safe Summer Tip #8 for a Happy Dog below.
Let your dog check the weather.
Dogs don’t have the Weather Channel, so they don’t know why they are being denied a long walk for the day. Allow your dog to step outside and feel for itself that it is too hot, too wet, or too cold to go on a long walk. Instinctually, the dog will understand that it has to shorten its walk, or simply come back inside where it’s safe.
