Chilled blanket for the dog: With these aids, you support your pet in the heat

cool dogs in summer

Dogs pant particularly hard on hot days to cool their bodies - but this only helps to a limited extent. We present five ways you can support your pet in summer.

Dogs can't really sweat: they only have a few sweat glands on their paws and tongue. On hot days, however, these are far from sufficient to acclimatize the body of the four-legged friend - which is why dogs start panting to cool down. However, this does not work very well at an outside temperature of 35 to 40 degrees, so your help is needed. You can help your pet survive the heat better. You can find out which means are most effective here.

Help your pets to cool body

1. Cooling mat

The self-cooling mat is only activated when your dog lies down on it. The chilled ceiling is made of PVC and nylon, making it particularly robust, washable and water-repellent. The combination of cooling gel and foam cools your pet's body evenly - this means that body heat can be better regulated on hot days. So you can help ensure that your dog (or your cat) does not overheat completely in summer because this is dangerous for young puppies, older and also sick animals.

2. Cooling scarf

Dogs with thick fur, in particular, suffer from the scorching heat on hot days. You, therefore, need special support to avoid overheating. This applies not only to your own four walls but also on the go - here you can use a cooling scarf that you can simply put on your pet and thus ensure the necessary cooling. The cloth is activated by holding it underwater and soaking up the filling made of special crystals and starting the cooling.

3. Cooling vest

The cooling vest for dogs ensures an even more extensive cooling outdoors: Available in different sizes, a cooling system is also incorporated into the fabric, which is activated by water. The vest is best for medium-sized breeds (including Border Collie or Samoyed) - for this reason, you should first measure your dog's body size before you decide to buy it. If the vest is not suitable for your pet, you can still use one of the other options mentioned here. 

4. Drinking fountain

On hot days it is just as important for dogs as for people that they drink enough. Since your pet is usually unable to pour water itself, it needs your help. But what if you are not at home? The water in the dog bowl quickly runs out, especially on hot summer days - a drinking fountain for dogs can be the solution here, provided you have a garden or terrace that is freely accessible to the animal. The drinker is activated only by pressure and dispenses fresh water at all times.

5. Dog pool

Most dogs love to splash around in the water. However, most dog owners don't always have the time and leisure to drive their four-legged friends to the nearest lake. A sensible and refreshing alternative for the four-legged friend is a small dog pool, which can be placed in the garden or simply in front of or behind the house and filled with water. This gives your dog the opportunity to acclimatize in summer - because what could be nicer than plunging into the cool water on a hot day? If your pet is a real water rat, the purchase is definitely worth it for humans and animals.
