How to Keep Your Pet Cool in the Summer

Whether embarking on an outdoor adventure or enjoying a relaxing day in the sun, spending time outside with our pets in the summer is always fun! However, before you bring your furry friend outdoors with you, make sure you’re prepared to prevent them from overheating. From water bottles and toys to cooling vests and more, there are plenty of ways to help your pet beat the heat and stay cool.

Water Bottles

Just as it’s important for us pet parents to stay hydrated, we need to make sure our pets are drinking enough water throughout the day – especially in the heat! It’s a good idea to have a water bottle or collapsible bowl on hand as these are great tools to ensure your four-legged family member always has access to drinking water.

Great when you’re on-the-go, the ASOBU bottle features a detachable silicone bowl that slides off the base of the bottle for when your pet needs to re-hydrate! The bowl’s anti-slip base makes it easy for your pet to drink from, and the bottle’s easy grip handle makes it convenient for you to carry.

If you and your pet are heading out on a drive, make stops every so often so you can both stretch your legs and re-hydrate. Featuring a stylish, compact and ultra-slim design, the RC Pets On The Go Bowl has a waterproof nylon interior to keep water in and can be slipped into your pocket when closed.

Cooling Products

Not only can cooling mats help your pet stay cool on a hot summer day, but they are also a great way to help them relax. Infused with cool gel microbeads, Bowsers Cool Gel Memory Foam Mat can keep your pet comfortable even when it’s hot out. Made with a unique evaporative cooling fabric, RC Pets Zephyr cooling bandanas and vests can help your pet chill out this summer. Lightweight even when wet, the bandanas and vests stay cool for over an hour and can help ease the discomfort of the heat.

Whether in a hot house or travelling, the Metro Cooling Fan can provide your pet with some relief from the heat. The fan has a quiet operation so your pet won’t get startled and will be able to truly relax and cool off!

Water Toys

Whether heading to the cottage or lounging by the pool, toys can encourage your pup to spend time in the water and stay cool! For the dog who loves to fetch, water toys can offer tons of refreshing fun. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, these water toys are designed to float upright in the water so that your dog will have no trouble fetching them!
