Sunny weather brings humidity and heat that can be dangerous for pets.

In August, the sunny weather brings humidity and heat that can be dangerous for pets. Here are our picks for helping your dogs stay cool and safe this month.

Tri-fold water dish. Grab a bottle of water, and this handy collapsible bowl holds a drink for your dog on a hike, at the dog park or at the beach.

Reusable treat pack. Fanny packs are back in style! Bring your treats around town in a hands-free bag to for quick rewards and energy-boosting calories.

Frozen yogurts or bones. Help your pup cool down with a nice frozen yogurt made especially for dogs, or a frozen specialty bone. Make sure these types of treats have been made with pet-friendly ingredients.

LED lights. Add a bright LED to your dog’s collar, harness or leash. They can be seen from long distances, keeping you and your dog safe during night walks or activities.

Custom tags and sturdy collars. Summer is the season when so many dogs get lost, and a good collar and identification tag can help ensure your dog is returned to you. These are beneficial year-round, and should be worn at all times for maximum safety.
