Summer is just around the corner, which means the weather is finally starting to heat up. Like humans, dogs struggle to stay cool during the hot summer months.

This year, help your dog beat the heat with this awesome cooling collar!

When the weather gets hot, dogs need to stay cool — otherwise they can suffer from heatstroke. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, “Pets can get dehydrated quickly, so give them plenty of fresh, clean water when it’s hot or humid outdoors. Make sure your pets have a shady place to get out of the sun, be careful not to over-exercise them, and keep them indoors when it’s extremely hot.”

If dogs overheat, they may suffer from a variety of heat-related symptoms, including difficulty breathing, excessive panting, drooling, increased heart rate, weakness, increased respiratory rate, seizures, and even collapse.

Make sure to keep your dog cool this summer by providing lots of shade, fresh water, and air conditioning/fans indoors.

You can also help your dog stay safe from the heat with one of these incredibly useful cooling collars! For just $9.99, you can help reduce heat stress and heat-related fatigue in your pup. It’s got built-in leash hole for walks, and it’s even machine washable!

Whether you’re spending your day relaxing at the beach, hiking through the mountains, or just going for a run at your local park, this cooling collar will help protect your dog from the heat.
