We’ve been loving the weather and the dog walks are very pleasant now that the rain and wind has gone… but it’s easy for dogs to get hot when they’re being transported around on their way to have fun. We keep all windows in the van open and when we’re waiting for a dog to come out or get taken home, the doors are open to get the nice breeze through. There is plenty of water available and the dogs are monitored to make sure they’re cool and hydtrated enough.
At Bark and Stride, we make sure there is water wherever we go – Milton Country Park, Impington Lake, Grantchester Meadows, Stourbridge Common. Most of the dogs love to swim and have a drink while they’re at it. For dogs that don’t swim and don’t like going near the water, we take a water bottle with us so everyone can have some refreshment… me included!!
Once everyone’s comfortable, we can get on with having fun and games!!
