How to Keep Your Pets Cool this Summer - Schmidt Mechanical

Let’s not forget that our dogs needs to stay cool too! When a heat wave rolls in, will you know how to help your furry friend beat the heat? If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with these five tips:

Water. You know what to do! It’s easy for your dog to become dehydrated, so refill that bowl as often as possible with plenty of fresh, clean water. Your dog will also appreciate a few ice cubes in his dish or on the go.

Cold Treats. Your pup may not be able to eat a cup of fro-yo, but he can sure enjoy Frosty Paws frozen dog treats – packed with protein, vitamins, and minerals that dogs need. It’s also perfect for storing in your freezer for easy access when he needs it!

The Pool. You don’t need an in-ground pool for your canine friend to splash around when it’s too hot to get comfortable. An inflatable swimming pool is a great alternative for your pet to relax. Place it in the shade and make sure you supervise him at all times, as not all dogs are good swimmers.

The Kitchen. Ahh, the feeling of cold tile under your feet on a scorching day. It may not surprise you that your dog feels the same way! The kitchen may become your dog’s favorite new spot in the house, but if you’d rather keep him out of the room, you may want to consider buying a gel pet mat to help him stay cool anyplace, anytime.

The Vent. You know you have a smart pup when he races straight for the air vent after coming home from a brisk walk outside. With that being said, make sure your AC is up to speed all summer long to ensure that your dog gets the proper air circulation he needs to beat the heat!
