We want all pets to have a great summer! Before you hit the beach, or head off for summer vacation here are a few tips to keeping your dog happy!
Did you know your dog can get sunburned? Dogs that have short hair and are light colored are especially susceptible to sun damage. Before hitting the beach this summer with your pup make sure to apply sunscreen to their nose and ears!
Leaving for summer vacation? At kennel drop-off leave with a positive attitude. If you’re upset your pup will be too! If you leave with an upbeat attitude your pup will think that there is nothing to worry about, and will have the time of his/her life!
Outside on hot days? Make sure to cool your dog inside and out. Try some pup popsicles and a baby pool! It is very easy for a dog to overheat in this hot summer weather! [star_list]
