Oh, how we love the dog days of Summer. Whether it be lazy days in the sun or a day outdoors near the lake, it’s important to remember Safety First for our four-legged friends.
Many folks with dogs love to take their pooches out to sea in the summer. With warmer weather and easier sailing, it’s not so unusual to see a furry four-footer playing the role of skipper!
However, there are plenty of safety considerations to take into account before bringing your pup on board.
According to Dogman Mark, all dogs should be equipped with a dog life jacket, as rough waves can pull under even strong swimmers. Dogs with light-colored fur are also very susceptible to sunburns, so you’ll need to apply dog sunscreen to your pup’s fur to protect them on the hot, sunny boat deck!
The folks over at K9 of Mine have published a new Dog Safety Tips Infographic that we’re sharing here in an effort to keep four-legged crew safe and secure this sailing season. Make sure to read these tips before you set out!
Does your pooch need training so s/he is ready for adventure? Or does your pooch need a safe place to hang out while you are away this summer? Contact Dogman Mark for more information on how he and his team can help.
