How To Enjoy Hiking In The Summer With Your Dog?
Summer and holidays mean a lot of fun for both, you and your dog. However, there are many hazards and situations that you should be prepared for. Remember to have with you your puppy’s medical records, health certificate (remember to update it). In an emergency, all the documents and vaccination history save time. It does not matter whether you are going to enjoy a day at the beach or longer holidays with your dog, you should always make it safe for both of you to enjoy summer most.
If your dog accompanies you regularly on excursions, it might be worth investing in his own kit that you can grab and go just as you would do for your kids. There are a doggie backpack with a leash attachment that can be adjusted for a perfect fit, you can pack toys, treats, bowls and your puppy’s favourite food. They are perfect for dogs of 30lbs and more. For smaller dogs, there are special messenger-styled bags.
Remember that high temperatures in the summer season may cause serious damages to your dog’s health. Make sure you have enough water for you and your dog. There are many accessories and belts that keep water cold and easily accessible by your dog. Try to search for it here.
If you are hiking regularly you might also need a protective jacket designed to keep dogs cool in excessive heat is or ergonomic boots that will help protect paws from hot sand and dirt trails and at the same time protect your dog from sharp stones and cut glass.
