Summer is already here and just like us, our pet dogs would also love to enjoy and have fun under the sun. It is a perfect weather to enjoy the outdoors with our fur best friend, whether it is at the beach or at a park.
While we are busy packing up our summer day outing essentials, our pet can’t pack its own bag that’s why we have to include their stuff in our preparation. What things do we need to pack up for our dog’s sunny day adventure? From fun toys that your dog could enjoy or cooling stuff when your dog feels hot under the sun, here are the must-have summer accessories you should pack up for your pet dog.
Drinking and Eating Essentials
Water and food are important in keeping your dog healthy and well no matter what season it is. First of all, you need to keep your dog well hydrated by giving him more water during these hot sunny days. Dehydration is deadly for animals, not just for humans. Be sure that you’re providing clean, cool and fresh water regularly and healthy food through a pet drinking fountain and feeding bowl.
Wherever you go, a cooling mat is one of the must-haves dog accessories you should pack always. It is a mat with cooling gel inside that cools down your dog’s body as it lies down on it. You don’t need batteries or electricity to make it work. Just put it in a spot under a shade and let your dog enjoy resting on his cool mat. It is easy to pack and not that complicated to clean.
If you’re having some summer garden fun, your dog can also enjoy with you with his own doggy paddling pool. It’s just like a little pool for your lovely pet where he can splash around and play in the water. It has sturdy walls which means you don’t need to worry much about water spilling everywhere. Aside from that, you can control the amount of water to put into it, you can be sure your little doggy is safe with that water level. It’s easy to fold and pack, perfect to take it when you’re going on a summer outing as well.
If you’re planning to take your pet on a swimming adventure, a dog life jacket is one of the important things you should never forget to bring. Even if your dog is a good swimmer, it gives you extra assurance that your pet is safe on the water when he has a life jacket on. Dog life jackets are designed not to restrict movement, giving your pet full freedom to enjoy the water.
With these pet accessories, your dog will surely enjoy under the sun together with you. You can also be sure of his safety and well-being whether at the beach, at the park, or wherever you plan to go on a bright sunny day.
