- Don't leave your dog in the car, even with the windows down.
- Brush your dogs at least every 2 weeks during the summer to get rid of that winter coat and keep them cooler.
- Sidewalks, pavement, and sand can get extremely hot and burn a dog's pads.
- Too much exercise can make your dog overheat. No more than 10 minutes at a time on hot days.
- After exercise, letting your dog drink too much water can kill them.
