We do dog agility with our dog and our trainers tell us to do 4 other things to cool our dog down that was not mentioned in this article: Mist their tummy with water, wet the bottom of their paws (pads), have them stay cool by sitting on a cool/wet pad, use one of those vests that you wet to keep the dog's body cool. Often it can be very warm at dog agility competitions, and all the handlers are very good at keeping their dogs safe from heat & sun.

I usually have a frozen bottle of water ready to take out as needed. I also spritz him with water from a hose or rub him with a cold towel.

Would having a kiddy pool in your backyard help?

It's always good to have this reminder. It's too easy to make a mistake in the hot, humid weather.

I also have a frozen slushy bottle of Gatorade or Powerade ready as well this helps my girl, Jessy, cool off and it is good for her and me! :)

Me and my dog Buddy are very happy that we could learn a little more about the dangers of the summer, and now will be more careful. Thanks again!

I live in the desert and get so frustrated at anyone here in the summer exercising their dogs or leaving them in cars - when out here the people shouldn't be doing that when it's in the 100s. And good info about the humidity factors too. I'm glad this was on the 'home page' and maybe should be repeated several times during the summer months.
