If you are taking a road trip, make sure to never leave your dog in a car even for a few minutes on a hot or warm day.

Thankfully, there are many dog friendly retailers and drive thru and open air restaurants, so you should never have to leave your dog in the car.

Keep your dog hydrated. Don’t underestimate the importance of offering your dog fresh, cool water during outdoor hikes, runs, walks or when traveling.
