Summer is here in Minnesota

Gopher and I wanted to take a moment to remind people of some basic canine safety for the heat of summer.

-Your dog needs to acclimate to the heat as well, take time when exercising, take a lot of break, and have plenty of water.

-Never leave your dog unattended in a vehicle, not only dangerous and harmful, but also illegal in many states.

-When hot cool your dog by using a cool towel on the inner thighs, just like humans, don't give an extremely cold item when the core temperature is high, also don't feed immediately following exercise allow their internal temperature to come down.

-Just like with kids, when a dog is swimming they should not be left unattended.

Thanks From Gopher!! Don't forget to stay cool,  Gopher likes to stay cool by singing to sirens.

And bobbing for ice cubes to beat the summer heat.



The Summer preview, more stories from working with kids, and coming soon "Final Visits: Hospice Care".

Have a great summer!!
