How to look after your dog during a heatwave

Temperatures in the UK have jumped considerably in the last few days. Up here in Cumbria it’s about 25°C and rising. And further south, it’s already more than 30°C. So, there’s no doubt we’re all starting to feel the heat. But if you can feel it, so can your dog. Which is why I’m writing this post today, as it’s really important that you know how to look after your dog during a heatwave.

One of this year’s biggest challenges for new dog owners is without a doubt, separation anxiety. As more and more of us return to work outside the home, it’s the biggest worry we’re facing.

Yesterday, Poppy got her first tick of the year. And so, I thought it was probably worth writing a post about dogs and ticks.

Ticks just love our pooches!
