Tips for Keeping Your Dog Safe In the Water

If your dog is anything like ours, he absolutely loves water!

In fact, we haven't met many dogs that don't enjoy splashing or swimming through a lake or pool, especially on those hot summer days. Water and Keeping Your Pup Safe on SummerWith summer in full swing, chances are you are going to be spending some recreational time with your pup in a local dog-friendly lake or pool. While your pup may seem like a natural swimmer, he is still susceptible to the same dangers that humans are. It is important to know how to keep your dog safe while he is in the water this summer.

Life Jacket

If your pup is going to be swimming in a lake or the ocean, it is important to invest in a life jacket for him. Just like humans, dogs can suffer from a leg cramp or they can become overly tired after spending the afternoon romping through the water and they may have trouble staying afloat. A life jacket will make it easier for your pooch to stay afloat and it can even save their life.

Shot

If your pup is going to be spending a lot of time playing in lakes or rivers, it is a good idea to get them a Giardia vaccination. Giardia is a parasite that causes a diarrheal illness. It is found in soil or water that has been contaminated with feces from an animal that has been infected. It is fairly easy to contract if your pup swallows any water while playing.

Shower

After your dog is done romping around in the water, it is important to give them a bath. A bath or shower will rinse off any dirt or bacteria your pup may get on him from the lake or river. It is also a good idea to remove your dog's collar afterwards as a wet collar can rub and cause hot spots. If your pup is going to be spending the day in the water, they are going to be a dirty mess at the end of the day. Be sure to protect your car seats from the dirt, muck, and mud with one of our pet car seat covers. Contact us today to order yours.

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Very well made

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
