Keep Your Pup Cool

Chocolate Labs Keeping Cool
Summer is upon us and it is time for us to remember the importance of keeping our Labrador Retrievers cool during the summer heat.

With the dog days of summer here it's important to help keep our Labs cool and protected. We have compiled a list of some things every Labrador Retriever owner needs to keep in mind and some helpful ideas to keep your dogs cool.

1. If your Lab will be outside for even a short period of time, make sure it has a cool and shady place to rest and lots of water in a spill-proof water bowl.

2. Keep your Labs well-groomed in summer.

3. A child's plastic wading pool is one of the best ideas for Labs.

4. Dog walks should take place in the early morning hours or later in the evening, when the sun has started to set.

5. If your Lab is going to be out in the sun for a longer period of time, use a sunscreen made especially for dogs!

The main thing to remember in the summer is to take cues from your Lab. If you keep a close eye on your Lab during those hot, humid months you and your Lab will enjoy a great summer. Just remember that a well-informed Labrador Retriever owner makes for a happy and healthy Lab.
