Hot days are definitely something to look forward to! I’m sure your hearing dog is just as excited as you are. There are so many fun things you can do together during your free time. However, it’s important to remember that dogs can get tired or overheated in the heat, so you guys be sure to take breaks and stay hydrated. Safety first!
1. Keep your hearing dog hydrated by giving them plenty of water throughout the day. Make sure to bring a water bottle and bowl with you on walks and outings.
2. Avoid walking your hearing dog during the hottest part of the day. Schedule walks and outings for early mornings or late evenings when it’s cooler outside.
3. Use a cooling vest or mat to help regulate your hearing dog’s body temperature. These products are designed to keep your dog cool and comfortable even on the hottest days.
4. Protect your hearing dog’s paws from hot pavement by walking them on grass or shaded areas. If you must walk on pavement, consider using booties to protect their paws.
5. Keep your hearing dog well-groomed and free from mats and tangles. This will help air circulate around their skin, keeping them cooler.
By following these tips, you can help ensure that your hearing dog stays happy, healthy, and comfortable during hot summer days.
