Beating the Heat: Enjoying the Summer with your Dog
Regardless of where you live, temperatures are likely to soar this summer. While it may be too hot to enjoy the sun all day, there are ways that you can treat your pet to a fun outdoor adventure. In addition to securing Canine Liability Insurance to protect you and your pup in the event of an injury, consider the following fun ways to get the most out of summer.
Hit the beach.
If you live next to the beach or a river, now is the time to beat the heat and bring your dog. Not only will he love exploring the new smells, turf, and other dogs, frolicking around in the water will cool him down. Plus, it burns calories so you dog can get excess energy out.
Dip their paws in the pool.
If you are landlocked, let your pup go for a swim in your pool. Just be sure to allow your pet to go to the bathroom before jumping in, then let him swim and enjoy the water. This might also be your preferred water enjoyment method as you won’t have to wipe sand and seaweed off of his paws.
Chances are your dog will love sprinkler time just as much as you did as a kid — and any yellow pee patches on your lawn will love it, too, says Dogster.
Go out after dark.
Especially for dogs with double coats, waiting until the sun goes down might be the wiser option. Go out for a hike, a walk, or even to the dog park to let them release their energy when it’s much cooler.
Ever considered taking your dog camping? Well, now is the time! Take a tent to provide shade and allow your dog to experience the outdoors with you. A spot with plenty of trees or a watering hole is ideal and your dog will love all of the new smells, people, and dogs.
There are many reasons a dog may bite, and it’s not always 100% preventable. In addition to financially protecting dog owners from dog-bite claims, our Canine Liability Policy also covers other injuries to people, including scratches and fall injuries caused by dogs, and injuries to other animals.
