Taking Your Dog to the Beach in Summer

Wednesday, May 8, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

Before you know it, you’ll be spending time with your best friend at the beach. Make sure that you always provide enough shade and water for your dog. Dogs, especially those with short hair and pink skin can sunburn. Limit your dogs exposure to the sun and apply sunblock to his ears and nose thirty minutes before going outside.  Know the water conditions. It’s a good idea to check with your lifeguard.  Dogs are easy targets for sea lice and jellyfish. Running on the sand is a strenuous exercise both for humans and dogs. If your dog is out of shape, he can easily pull a tendon or ligament. Monitor your dog’s activity.

Don’t let your dog drink seawater, the salt will make him sick.  Salt and minerals in the ocean can damage your dogs coat so rinse him off a the end of the day.

Not all beaches allow dogs so check with your local town before heading out. Have a great summer with your best friend!

Remember, your pets count!
