Tips on How To Keep Your Dog Cool
With the upcoming warmer days coming, it's important to keep in mind that some dogs need to stay comfortable with all the heat. Cavaliers, amongst others, are very prone to heat exhaustion and heat strokes. This list includes any dogs with a shorter snout, like pugs, bulldogs, boxers, boston terriers, pekingese.
These tips are easy, and can prevent some serious consequences for your beloved fur baby.
2- Use a Cooling Mat
These cooling mats are a recent discovery and are a life saver! Herky gets very very hot in the summer, and will usually lay down on our ceramic floors in the kitchen to cool down. Every since we got this, the girls both lay on it every time they're a bit hot. I also love to use a large size (L-XL), for both girls to use it at the same time.

I hope you enjoy these tips. Remember that even if your dog is not technically "prone" to over heating, please always be careful in the summer and watch out for signs of exhaustion. These tips are easy to follow and will be sure to keep your pup comfortable.
Go Fresh Pet Dog Backpack - Review
How cute are these dog backpacks? They're from Go Fresh Pet, and here's a full rundown.
We're actually big fans of Go Fresh Pet products in general. They're always good quality, functional and come in beautiful colors.
These backpacks come in three sizes: S, M and L. Both Herky and Milton are wearing size S in the photo above. I was actually surprised to see that there are only three sizes. Go Fresh Pet usually offer a HUGE range of sizes. BUT this backpack in size S can fit dogs from 15lbs to 35lbs. In all honesty though, it's too big for Milton (who is only 11lbs).
This backpack is so sturdy. It has an integrated harness that buckles at two different locations, with a padded chest strap for support and comfort. It has two removable saddle bags, and hidden compartments for extra storage. There are also two loops for you to hook a leash to. And finally, a back handle for emergencies.
All in all, this backpack is very well made and super practical. If you have an active lifestyle, this backpack is perfect for hands-free trekking. I love the fact that you use it as a harness, but also as a backpack. Although we don't do a lot of off leash trekking and hiking, I would feel comfortable having Herky wear this backpack around. She can carry her own poo bags, right?
