Dog exercising tip

It's important to take precautions when exercising your dog in warm weather, as they can quickly overheat.

Choose the right time of day

Avoid exercising your dog during the hottest part of the day, which is usually between 10am and 4pm. 

Go for shorter walks

Shorten your walks and take more breaks in the shade. 

Bring plenty of water

Bring plenty of water for your dog to drink, and make sure they take regular breaks to cool off. 

Avoid strenuous activity

Avoid strenuous activity, such as running or fetch, in hot weather.

Watch for signs

Signs of heatstroke include excessive panting, difficulty breathing, bright red gums, and vomiting. If you see any of these signs, take your dog to the vet immediately. 

Be patient 

Be patient with your dog and listen to their cues. If they seem tired or uncomfortable, take a break.
