Too often I see and hear about a dog that got overheated during a hike. And at times, those stories end with a very very sad ending. Death. Overheating and heat exhaustion can be prevented so when I hear stories like this, it really upsets me to the core.
Recently I was asked to be a guest contributor at 4Knines. I thought it was a great opportunity to talk to a wider audience about this topic and provide ways to prevent this from happening to other dogs. The tips are applicable to humans too, of course. I hope you find the article helpful and share with others!
