It's officially summer!!!!! Break out of your old routine & add a little sunshine to your pet's activities. Here are a few easy suggestions!!!!

Add a summer twist to your regular routine.

We all know dogs like treat-stuffed Kongs, so why not try a simple summer twist? Stuff the Kong (or any food-stuffable dog toy) with whatever stokes your dog—peanut butter, wet dog food, softened kibble, mashed banana—and then pop it in the freezer for a cool, frozen treat!

Cool your dog down.

Dogs don’t sweat like people do. Instead they regulate their body temperature through their paws and by panting. Help them keep cool on extra hot days by wetting a bandanna, wringing it, out and then popping it in the freezer to make a cooling icy bandana

Create a splash zone.

Some dogs love to play in sprinklers. How do you know if your dog is one of them? Set up a sprinkler and play a game of fetch through it. Some dogs just love it.

Dine out with your dog.

Summer = restaurant patio season, which means dining al fresco with your dog! Get out of the kitchen and take a stroll with your BFF (that would be best furry friend) to the nearest dog-welcoming spot with outdoor seating. If your dog has questionable table manners, grab some take-out and head to the park instead!

Hit the (dog-friendly) beach!

Get high-tech help with a fundamentally low-tech pursuit: explore new dog-friendly areas with the help of a handy app that maps out dog-friendly parks, beaches, and hikes in your geo-location. We like Dog Park Finder Plus for iPad and iPhone, just $1.99 through the iTunes app store. It shows the details and locations of dogs-welcome walks and off-leash-romp spots in both the US and Canada. Perfect for when travelling or checking out new areas in your hometown!
