Summer Essentials For Your Dog

Summer Essentials For Your Dog

Maybe it's the uncertainty of what day it is but 2020 has been a YEAR, to say the least. Good news - we're halfway through it! To celebrate this victory as well as the first day of Summer, we gathered a list of essentials for your dog to survive the Texas summer.



The Coolest Threads—Literally

Just because it’s a bazillion degrees outside doesn’t mean you’re limited to your birthday suit (in your pet’s case). The RC Pet Zephyr Cooling Dog Vest is made with lightweight material that uses evaporative cooling to keep your dog’s temperature down. Looking to make less of a statement but reap the same benefits? Try the RC Pet Zephyr Cooling Dog Bandana.


Your pet’s paws are another concern: as temperatures increase, so does the temperature of the pavement. RC Pets Sport Pawks – Dog Socks protect your dog’s paws from hot asphalt, slippery surfaces, and debris. Plus, they are s’cute!

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…

Make a splash with Pet Adventures Worldwide Mariner Dog Life Jacket. Perfect for pool parties, trips to the greenbelt or on the boat, the adjustable straps ensure the perfect fit while the grab handle makes it easy to pull your dog out of the water in an emergency.

A/C please!

Plan to spend more time indoors? Planet Dog Orbee Tuff Snoop Dog Toy offers hours of long-lasting, brain-stimulating entertainment. Fill with treats and dogs will pounce, nudge, nose, and nibble to release the hidden reward.

Give a dog a bone!

Literally. Raw bones like Bones & Co Raw Beef Marrow Bone are a great treat to add extra moisture into your dog’s diet. Plus, it’s lip-licking good as you can see.

Don’t go chasin’ waterfalls…

A collapsible bowl will provide your pet some TLC. These travel bowls are the perfect companion for your doggo when out and about.

Paw, paw, paw, paradise!

Did you know dogs can also experience sunburns? It’s true. If your furry friend is in direct sunlight for extended periods of time, especially if their coat is cut short and skin is exposed, we recommend applying Shake Organic Skin Cream for Pets to their skin & nose before heading outside. This cream prevents hot spots and provides SPF protection.



Summer heat can be cruel, but these goods will keep your pup cool. Do you have a go-to summer product or tips? We’d love to hear them - share it with us!
