Regardless of where you’re living in Canada, the summer time is when your dog might suffer through the heat and humidity. You can focus on your dog’s safety with our dog waste bags which are textured so they are easy to open in any season.
You can buy a box of 500 from us so you can concentrate on your Pooch’s safety in the summer heat. Here’s a few tips to help you do that.
Watch for Signs of Overheating
One of the first things that you need to do is watch for signs of overheating. If you can catch your dog when they are starting to feel ill from the heat, you can prevent any kind of serious illness like heatstroke.
A dog that is panting and showing a lack of coordination in the hot summer sun can be red flags that you shouldn’t ignore. If they are showing obvious signs of getting ill from the sun, the first thing you should do is get them to a nice shaded place. If they don’t recover quickly after that, you should take him to the vet.
Protect Their Paws
Protecting your dog’s paws is a responsibility, just like making sure you pick up their poop with one of our dog waste bags that contains recycled material. Here’s a good test you can use on those July days to see if it’s too hot for your dog’s paws.
If you can feel the heat through your shoes on the sidewalk so can Rover and you can pick him up and walk to a cooler spot. If you’re a really caring dog parent, you can buy them a set of doggie boots to wear. However, be forewarned. Your pooch will more than likely take a little time getting used to their new summer wear.
Don’t Leave Rover in The Car
Summer is no time to leave Rover in the car even for a short period of time. Your dog is a member of the family and you wouldn’t leave your child in a vehicle in August either. Leaving your canine friend alone in a hot enclosed space on a summer day can cause them to get very sick or maybe even die.
If you take them with you even when you’re only going to be away from the car for a few minutes, everyone stays safe. If you’re lucky enough to find a place to walk your dog that has our dog waste bags at strategic locations, you’ll be able to keep everything neat and tidy too.
