Hot Weather Is Here And Your Pup Needs A Little Extra TLC!

Golden Retriever

It has been a very busy week at Mary's Pet Squad and I am so thankful! Besides being on the go with my busiest dog walking schedule yet, I have met some amazingly kind clients and their adorable pets! And the cherry on top of this week has been the wonderful weather. I personally love the hot heat, but it can be a bit intense for dogs on walks. I have been making sure to stick to the shady or grassy part of my clients' neighborhoods, as well as walking at a leisurely pace. This way, the dog doesn't overheat or step onto the piping hot ground. I'm also reducing walk length if I see the dog slowing down and panting heavily. Sometimes a short walk followed by an indoor play session is exactly what your dog needs (check me out above snuggling Bella after our walk today)! I always tailor your dog's walk to exactly what they need- If you watch them closely, they will tell you :). Finally, I always make sure their water bowl is full of cool water before I leave. Dogs get extra thirsty on hot days- just like us!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to get back at it next week! I get to have a visit from my Sam Pig and Duke this weekend :).

Puppies Are The Best!

Meet handsome Sir Squirtle The Pug! Isn't he so incredibly adorable?? I had the honor of visiting him this weekend to exercise his legs and help him take a potty break. I must admit that this happy face of his makes my heart soar! Also, that frog-legged snuggle position is the cutest thing I've ever seen!! Pugs are so magical. Puppies like Squirtle need bathroom and exercise breaks every 3-4 hours depending on how young they are. Check out the website for info on our Puppy Walk Plan and contact me with any questions. Puppies (as well as Puggies) are the best!! 🐷 🐶 🐸
