Major's annual summertime doggah pro-tips (with an important addition) βœ…. Since it is disgustingly humid outside today and I'm laid up on the couch I might as well post this. Most of the info you already know but always a good reminder:
.
1) when you walk your doggah hold your hand to the pavement for a minimum of 1 minute, if it's too hot for your hand it's too hot to walk your dog on it.
2) it's best to walk them before 9-10 am, since the ground hasn't had time to heat the ground up.
3) Always bring a water bowl and a minimum of 2 water bottles. Don't think letting them drink while you pour water is enough, their tongues don't pull enough water into their mouths like this - bring a bowl! (That's what's in my backpack). 4) learn the signs that your dog is overheating. Every dog is different but with Major his head and his tail speak volumes. When he's walking with his head down and not reacting to passerbys or wildlife - and/or his tail isn't wagging, then he is telling me he's done. Learn the signs and pay attention to them, when walking your dog in the heat - they are your first priority - so stay off your phone.
5) take breaks in the shade. Even if you have to take 20 breaks that's fine, better safe than sorry.
6) this is my new addition, as shown in the dashcam video from yday (I'm glad i didn't take the truck out after and record over it on loop lol). I now bring an extra 1 gallon jug of cold-cool water with me. Before we even get started I pour it on Majors back, neck back and it has made a world of difference in the heat. The cold water regulates his body temperature so well that even toward the end of our walks he's peppy and wagging his tail like he wants to keep going. If there are creeks or ponds then cut them loose and let them swim, the main goal is safety THEN exercise! .
Again most of y'all already know a lot of this, but at one point I didn't so it's good to put it out there. I'd rather be repetitive every season and hopefully the info saves a doggah from having a real bad day. Hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday πŸ™πŸ½ (lmao I never realized I have mean face going until I watched this video πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, I guess I need to smile more)
