The summer months can be brutal to your dog. Dogs are much more susceptible to heatstroke than humans and rely on panting, a method of breathing out excess heat, to cool down their bodies. Some breeds are much more susceptible to the heat than others. Dogs with pushed-in faces, such as Bulldogs, Pugs and Boxers have smaller airways and therefore have less of an ability to blow out hot air.

We are pleased to provide the Green Pet Shop Cooling Pads to help your pooch stay cool this summer!

Our guests are taken for frequent walks throughout the day, and nothing beats lying on a Green Pet Shop Cooling Pad to cool off afterwards! Solo is a huge fan of these pads, as demonstrated in our featured photo.

These pads have some amazing benefits! They cool and soothe, help prevent over heating and dehydration, they last for years, recharge automatically, are weight activated, contain no water or electricity, no refrigeration and best of all they are non-toxic and safe for people’s pets and the planet!

I have seen people leave their dogs in the car during a heatwave all too often in the city. Why is it people forget that it only takes minutes for a dog to dangerously overheat? During extreme heatwaves, I choose to walk my dog during the coolest parts of the day, and keep him hydrated as much as possible.

I found the following article on the BCSPCA website. It is very informative and full of great tips to keep your dog safe during the summer. If you have any tips or additional advice, please share them on our blog for others to follow.

Help me in spreading the message to keep our loved ones safe!
