Summer Survival Guide: How to Keep Your Dog Safe and Cool in Hot Weather




As the sun's warmth fills the air and the great outdoors beckon, we want to ensure your beloved four-legged friend stays cool and comfortable during these hot summer months. At Mountain Khakis, we value the bond between you and your furry companion, and we've put together some expert tips to keep your dog cool and safe. 

1. Hydration is Key

Just like us, dogs need plenty of water to stay cool. Keep their water bowl full and accessible, especially during outdoor adventures. Remember to bring extra water on your journeys, and consider investing in a portable dog-friendly water bottle that’s easy to strap onto your gear when you’re out on a walk or hike. 

2. Shady Retreat

If you’re going to be outdoors for an extended period of time, create a shaded area in your space or bring along a portable canopy when you head out. Providing a cool retreat is essential for your dog's comfort during playtime or relaxation.  

3. Cooling Products

Explore any premium selection of cooling accessories designed to keep your pup comfortable. From cooling vests to elevated beds, there are great options out there – and remember whenever you can support your local independent pet store!  

4. Limit High-Intensity Activities:

During the hottest parts of the day, it's best to reduce strenuous activities. Opt for early morning or late evening adventures when the sun is less intense.

5. Check Pavement Temperature:

Hot pavement can burn your dog's paws. Before heading out for a walk, touch the pavement with your hand. If it's too hot to touch, it's too hot for your pup. Consider protective booties to safeguard those paws.
