Summer time is here! Picnics and beach parties and walks at the park are all great and wonderfully fun activities to do with your pet! But summertime can be dangerous for your fluffy family members too. Between the heat, and the hot sidewalks summertime can be rough on your pets. Familiarizing your pet with brand new places can be very beneficial for them!
9. Safe Travels
Unfamiliar surroundings can be unsettling to your pup. Summertime can mean travel or new places to explore. Err on the side of caution by keeping your dog on-leash in any new environment. If you’re traveling, take your vet’s contact info with you and get a recommendation for a vet in your destination area. A collar with identity tags is good protection in case the pet gets lost, but a microchip is even better and simple to have done.
