Finding cool activities is natural in the summer months. Water activities are a perfect solution for you as well as your dog. Dogs that don't normally take pleasure in getting wet will have a swim if they are encouraged to get wet on a hot day!

Many dog breeds enjoy swimming with their owners, fetching toys or simply splashing in the water. As a matter of fact, certain breeds of dogs have been bred to love water. To name a few: Labrador Retrievers, Newfoundland, Golden Retrievers, Irish Water Spaniels, Portuguese Water Dogs, and Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.

Dogs need exercise daily. Exercise will not only improve their health, but make them calmer when indoors. Taking your dog along on your day at the beach can provide hours of fun for you and your dog.

Another great idea for your water outing is a floating dog toy. Many floating dog toys come attached to rope handles that make it easy to play toss and tug games in or out of the water.

Drowning can be a side effect of dog swimming when they are exhausted. Therefore, pet life preservers are available at many pet stores and come in a range of sizes and styles. This will help dog owners enjoy their day at the beach, knowing their dog will not drown.

If you don't have quick access to a lake or pond, your dog can have a swim in your pool. Since some pools filters can't handle dog hair, this may not be an option. Even if you have a breed of dog that doesn't shed, dog owners opinions differ about pets in their pool. Liners can get ripped or dogs can damage the pool equipment.

A simple solution is to purchase a separate pool made specifically for dogs. A durable dog pool is transportable, easy to fill and empty and made of tough PVC for long lasting use. These pools are ideal for a quick dip in the pool in the backyard, deck or patio. These types of pools fold down completely making it easy to take on a summer vacations and easy to store during the winter.
When Summer is here. Give your pet relief from the heat. Have a magnificent summer and share your water adventures with your pet.
