Hot Weather Safety Tips for your Dog. There are many precautions that can be taken to keep your dog safe and well on a hot day.


  • Avoid walking your dog at the hottest times of the day - often morning or later in the evenings can be cooler
  • Don't excessively walk your dog
  • Always take plenty of water with you when out with your dog
  • Make sure the dog has shade to cool off in, either inside or when out
  • Take your dog to the groomers and keep their fur clipped 
  • Dogs can get sun burned - especially white dogs or those with little hair so try and keep them out of direct sun
  • Think twice about any car trips with your dog - avoid congested roads or busy times of day when they could overheart in the car if you are caught up in traffic
  • If driving with your dog plan your journey considering cooler times of the day and places to take breaks
  • Don't leave your dog in a car - as temperatures rise, dogs overheat quickly and leaving them for as little as 20 minutes could prove fatal
