Dogs and Grilling

doggrillI’m sure that there are many family barbeque’s going on this summer.┬áMany owners allow their dogs to roam free while they are cooking on the grill. The barbeque can be hazardous to your dog. Grills get very hot and your dog doesn’t realize that it’s hot and before you know it, he can really burn himself if he goes for that burger or hot dog. If your dog is a lively one, he may accidentally bump into the grill and knock it over and cause himself injury as well as others. Always keep your dog away from the grill. Keep him on his dog leash while you’re grilling.

Dogs love burgers and hot dogs and may even try to steel a dog or two during your family get together. This food is not good for your dog. You may have to tell your guests not to sneak burgers or hot dogs to Buster. Instead, offer your dog some of his favorite food during this time so he doesn’t feel “left out.”

Remember, water is one of the core components of an animal’s diet. Always keep the dog water bowl filled if he’s spending the day with you outside in the sunshine. If you are traveling with your dog during the summer, always take water with you and offer it to him frequently during the trip.

Remember, your pets count!
