Tips For Enjoying Water Events With Your Dog
Remember to always keep a very close eye on your dog at events like these to make sure your dog is safe and having fun. If they seem uncomfortable, overheated, or agitated it may be time to call it a day. It’s also important to monitor things like whether your dog is drinking the water, and how their paws are doing on the pavement. Their paw pads can burn or tear much more easily when they have been in the water for a long time and then run across hot pavement. Make sure to stay with your dog the entire time and ensure they are safe and happy!
