1. Keep Your Dog Hydrated

2. Provide Shade

If your dog spends time outdoors, make sure there's a shady spot for them to rest in. You can use a beach umbrella or create a shaded area with a tarp or canopy. It's also a good idea to set up a kiddie pool or misting station for your dog to cool off in.

3. Avoid Midday Heat

The hottest part of the day is usually between 11am and 4pm. Avoid exercising your dog during this time and instead schedule walks and playtime for early morning or late evening when it's cooler.

4. Use Cooling Products

There are several products on the market designed to help keep dogs cool in hot weather. Cooling mats, vests, and bandanas can all help regulate your dog's body temperature. You can also use a spray bottle filled with cool water to mist your dog's coat and paws.

Here at OpenPark, we take our dog’s hydration seriously. Check out our refillable Park FreshWater, which contains electrolytes and minerals that are beneficial to both people & pets.

5. Don't Leave Your Dog in a Parked Car

Even with the windows cracked, a parked car can quickly become a death trap for dogs in hot weather. If you need to run errands, leave your dog at home in a cool, air-conditioned environment.

6. Watch for Signs of Overheating

Know the signs of heat exhaustion in dogs, including excessive panting, drooling, lethargy, and vomiting. If you suspect your dog is overheating, move them to a cool, shaded area and give them cool water to drink. If symptoms persist, seek veterinary care immediately.

7. Groom Your Dog

Regular grooming can help keep your dog's coat clean and free of mats, which can trap heat close to their skin. Brush your dog's coat regularly and consider a summer haircut to help keep them cool.

Remember, it's your responsibility to keep your dog cool and comfortable in hot weather. By following these tips, you can help prevent heat exhaustion and ensure your furry friend stays healthy and happy all summer long. If you're ever in doubt about your dog's safety in hot weather, consult with a veterinarian for guidance. With a little extra care, you and your dog can enjoy a fun and safe summer together!
