HELP FOR HOT DOGS!

FamilyFun - - NEST -

Aw, poor puppy. He al­ways has to wear a fur coat! Here are three ways to keep your four-legged friend happy this sum­mer.

Get on paw pa­trol. “If it’s over 90°F, walk your dog on the grass, or get booties to avoid burns,” says in­te­gra­tive vet­eri­nar­ian Carol Os­borne, D.V.M., di­rec­tor of Cha­grin Falls Pet Clinic, in Ohio. If it’s

too hot for you to walk bare­foot out­side, it’s too hot for your dog. My Busy Dog’s Se­cure Dog Boots are light­weight and durable—per­fect for the beach or the street. $36; my­busy­dog.com

Tie one on. Dogs pant to keep cool, but there’s only so much a tongue can do. En­ter: a cool­ing ban­danna, like foufit. Wet it, wring it, and tie it on. It locks in wa­ter, so

the grad­ual evap­o­ra­tion keeps dogs comfy for up to six hours. $8; store .foufoubrands.com

Of­fer to-go wa­ter. Carry a stain­less steel for-dogs-only wa­ter bot­tle on all jour­neys, no mat­ter how short. It doesn’t take much to de­hy­drate. The H2O4K9 25-ouncer keeps wa­ter ice-cold, and the lid/ doggy bowl is Bpa-free. $12; chewy.com
