Here at Pet Dog USA, we believe our pet dog owners and their pups are clever, busy creatures, who deserve the absolute best. That is why we are committed to bringing the highest quality training and animal behavior education available to our local San Francisco families in a down-to-earth, easy-to-learn way.
What Are Active Dog Day Adventures?
While it may seem surprising to some, one of the most commonly overlooked dangers I face in private training has to do with keeping a new dog safe around the backyard pool. When I bring up pool safety to clients for the first time, the thought is often met with a slightly bewildered look, and then a qualifying question somewhere along the lines of “but . . . don’t they just naturally sort of figure that out?”
Summer temperatures are definitely rising! Did you know dogs don't sweat like humans do? The only way our pups have to regulate body temperature is through panting. Another big part of how our pups keep cool is by conserving energy and NOT being too active. So for all of my fellow active-dog-owners, this means we need to take extra care to remember the needs of our dogs, and that we are very different creatures when it comes to dealing with summer heat.
