Beat the Heat

How do we have a severe storm warning and a severe heat warning at the same time? I'm flummoxed. I'm also ready to say goodbye to the hot and humid days of July and ready to say hello to...the hot and humid days of August. Huh. Not much of a tradeoff. We'll have to try to make the best of it and do what we can to help Andy beat the heat. Here are some tips to help your pup stay cool as temperatures rise:
  • Make sure your pup has plenty of fresh, clean water.
  • Keep your pup indoors. Exposure to extreme heat and humidity can lead to heatstroke.
  • Do not over-exercise your pup. If a walk is a must do it in the early morning or evening
  • Never leave your pup in a car, even with the windows rolled down, on a hot day.
