The Dog Days of Summer are here … long stretches of time where the heat and humidity are just too much for most dogs. The good news is you can cut down on extended walks, but the bad news is once your dog recovers from the heat, he’s still going to have energy to burn. If you can’t drop him into air-conditioned daycare or go for a swim every day, here are some ideas to keep the hounds happy that don’t take a lot of time or money.
Remember that dogs can get bored easily so make sure to switch things up as often as possible. Put the toys and chews in rotation, take your dog for those short summer walks in new neighborhoods for new sights and smells, and find some new tricks to train!
