How to keep your dog cool this Summer

Melbourne has been blessed with some beautiful summer like heat these past two weeks! Although most of us will be trying to soak it up as much as we can before the Victorian weather takes us back to the cold, our pooches may be feeling it a little harder than us.

This is only the very beginning of what could be a hot summer, and much like the extremes of the cold, we have to make sure we take extra care of our fur babies in the up coming heat. 

Every dog breed will cope with the heat differently. But heat stroke can be apparent in any dog, and it's up to us to make sure our dogs are as comfortable as they can be in the rising temperatures.

Here are a few small things we can do.

1. Place some ice cubes in their water dish

2. Ensuring they have access to enough shaded areas

3. Bring your Henley & Co portable travel bowl every where you go, making sure they always have access to water

4. Doing your daily walk early in the morning or later in the evenings when the temperature is at its lowest
