Summer is finally here and it’s time to enjoy the sun and warm weather with our beloved dogs. However, the hot weather can be tough on our furry friends, so it’s important to keep them comfortable and safe during the summer months. Luckily, there are plenty of hot weather dog products that can help you and your pup beat the heat. In this post, we’ll share seven of the best hot weather dog products that you may not have known you needed.
1. Portable Water Bowl
It’s important to keep your pup hydrated during the summer, especially when you’re out and about. A portable water bowl that can fold up or clip onto your bag is a great way to ensure your dog always has access to fresh water. Dexas collapsible water bowls are sold at Hollywood Feed and are easy to bring with you on your next adventure with your pet! The bowls are silicone and light-weight; meaning they can easily and comfortably clip to your dog’s leash or your belt loop.
2. Water, Water, and More Water!
Water is essential when going outside with your best friend. Try the Dexas Snack Water Duo to easily bring both water and tasty treat while you are out and about with your dog. If you see your dog panting heavily, then take a break and fill up your portable bowl with some water so your furry friend can take a break.
Even if you aren’t traveling, making sure your pet is hydrated is essential, especially during the summer months. Consider putting a water bowl outside as well as inside, in case your pup needs some while they are outside. The Bergan Pet Waterer is available in 1.5 gallons and 3 gallons and is a great product that allows your dog to have lots of water without worrying about constantly refilling.
3. Dog Pool
If you have a pool, your dog may already love to jump in and swim. But if you don’t have a pool, a dog pool is a great way to keep your dog cool and entertained during the summer. These pools are typically made of durable materials that can withstand your pup’s claws, and they come in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit any backyard. At Hollywood Feed, the Royal Pet Dog Pool is great option for having some fun in the sun. When playtime is done, the build in valve makes it easy to drain.
