With summer ahead and easier travel, it’s the perfect time to have a pawsome break with your fur babies. Whether it’s just a stroll in the park, an afternoon in a mall’s Paw Park, spending a weekend getaway like swimming at the beach or a day hike with your dog, Pet Express has outdoor essentials that will keep your adventures safe and worry-free.
Pet Express, the one-stop shop for all your pet’s essentials, has a wide variety of outdoor accessories like collapsible pool and feeding bowls; tug toys and treat dispensing toys; and pet wagons and strollers, that will keep your dog active and safe this summer. Here are some practical tips to keep your active dog safe on your next adventure:
- Create a checklist of your dog’s needs. Pack a lot of dog treats and meals that can be easily fed to your dog; and bring plenty of water and a cool mat to beat the heat.
- Have your dog checked with your vet before going on an outdoor adventure. Make sure that your dog’s flea and tick treatment and vaccinations are up-to-date too.
- Try not to feed your dog for an hour or two before you travel, this can help prevent motion sickness during your ride.
- While on the road, have a bucket car seat for your dog to keep them in place while moving.
- Start slow on your hike and always keep your dogs on a leash while walking on your trail.
- Make sure your dogs are always placed in a fully shaded and cool area after a long walk and keep them hydrated. Always bring cooling collars, vests, and mats that are very useful during hot summer days.
- Watch out for signs of heatstroke brought about by extreme temperatures – heavy panting, difficulty breathing, glazed eyes, dizziness, profuse salivation, vomiting, and a deep red or purple tongue.
