We are fortunate to live right outside of San Francisco where it never gets too hot. The best thing to do in the summer is to keep your dog in the shade as much as possible. When you take your dog on walks or to the park, try do limit activity between noon and 2p.m. to prevent heat stroke. Dogs can not cool off easily like us humans because they can not sweat. They sweat a tiny bit through their paws but it is not enough to cool them off. The only way dogs can cool down is by panting but that does work well if you dog lives in a hot and/ or humid environment.

There are some wonderful dog gifts that are available to help your dog cool down during the summer heat. You can buy your canine friend a dog pool which is made of tough PVC and it can be transported easily so you can take it on your summer vacation. The dog pools are also easy to fill and empty and will keep your dog refreshed for hours. Our pool is relaxing and will provide your dog comfort.

Cooling coats for dogs is another option if you live in a hot but dry climate. There are two types of cooling coats one that has fabric that absorbs water and as the water evaporates it slowly releases over a long period time. This evaporative cooling coat will keep your dog cool for hours. The other way to beat the heat is to get a dog cooling coat that uses an advanced technology that has specially designed inserts which release long-lasting, temperature-specific (58 degrees F, 14 degrees C), cooling relief designed to fit inside the dog coat.

If you can not splurge on a cooling coat, then another summer gift item is a cooling bandana. These bandanas are made of a special material that absorbs water and slowly releases the moisture over time. If you put the bandanna in the refrigerator it extends the time your pooch can stay cool.
