🌟 Sniff & Stroll 🌟

When the🌡 temperature 🌡 starts to rise, it’s important to consider that  IF your dog needs a good run in the morning, the earlier you go the better, if we have had many days where the heat has stayed high, some mornings it’s best to avoid completely or get up even earlier than early o’clock.

If you or your dog!! let’s face it, not all dogs are up with the larks! then you may want to choose your location of a walk to be a nice cool walk through some woods, where sniffing is the name of the game. If you’ve done some scent work training or even if your dog just loves to FIND things, this again is a great way to give your dog plenty to do without physically exerting themselves or risking any overheating. Remember they are not as efficient as us at regulating their 🌡 temperature🌡 as we are, or if like me, not very good at all either.

Plan your days well, expect your dog to be a little more lethargic 😴 and possibly even not quite so eager for their food unless you have a labrador 😂. . Car travel can be too much, remember your boot won’t be as cool as the feeling you have with the ❄️❄️ Air Con❄️❄️ in your face.

Sniffing whilst having a leisurely stroll can be such a wonderful calming activity for your dog without having to race around to tire out your pupster. If you’re interested in any Scent Work, I have a lovely little Pet Parent entry level course in to the world of scentwork,  all online, so can be done at home with you and your dog, check out my course HERE

Enjoy your day and stay cool.
