Here are some tips the American Human to Prevent a Hot Dog Summer. Regular exercise surprisingly can be dangerous for pets during the hot days of summer. If you plan on taking your pet on walk pick time of the day that are less hot like early mornings or evenings. 

A pet in a car is not cool! Your dog can feel the effects of a car in less that 1 minute. If you think cracking a window will help, your are mistaken. If you are going to a spot where your dog can't tag along, make sure you leave them home.

4. Dock Diving

Diving dogs is a canine sport in which dogs are enticed to run the length of a dock and leap as far out into the water as possible to compete for height or distance. They’re motivated to fly with a prized toy, which is thrown just out of reach in order to help them keep their momentum and get the best launch angle possible.

Charlie and Meka love Dock Diving. Here is a search to looking for Dock Driving places near you!

3. Swimming in the pool. 

Some dog might jump in and some might need a couple of swim lessons. Either way Pool safety is very important. Never leave your dog unattended, at the pool even if they know how to swim. Life jackets are the perfect way to assist your pup if they are not sure not to swim yet. And alway try to keep calm in and around the pool. 

Check out Charlie and Michigan splashing in the pool.

2. Don't for about training your dog. 

Even though we all get a little lazy in the summer doesn't mean we should snooze on the training . It is very important to continue to train your dog through the summer. Remember consistency is key! Take you dog out later in the evenings for some fetch training or a game of Frisbee! or take them to the local shops that are cooler to walk around, and practice not jumping and staying.
