Let the Summer Times Roll!

Puppy-on-the-beachIt’s June, which means summer at last! We hope the weather’s warmed up in your neck of the woods for what seems to be everyone’s favorite time of year. With longer days and warmer nights, we want everyone to make the most of their time outside – and we mean everyone! Here are a few of our favorite summertime activities for Fido to enjoy, too.
• Swimming! Dogs enjoy a nice, cool dip on a hot summer day just as much as we do. Some dogs may need a floatation vest, others may dive right in like they’re part porpoise, but being safe is the most important thing – as long as your pet’s recall is good and the water’s calm, you’re in for a wonderful day with your canine.
• Evening Strolls. One of the best things about summer is that the sun is still up at 5:30 when people get home from work without the blazing afternoon heat. Take the opportunity to stretch your legs and leave the workday behind with a nice walk with your dog in the fresh air.
• Morning Hikes. Another summertime perk is that the mornings are one of the most beautiful times to be outside; the sun is bright but the heat is still totally bearable. Make the most of your morning by planning a beautiful sunrise hike with your pooch – it’ll truly set you up for amazing day.
• Camping. You could do all of the aforementioned activities on a fun camping trip with the family! Just make sure Fido has plenty of food, water, and a bed in the shade to retreat from all the fun.
