Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
With Labor Day just around the corner, summer is sadly almost behind us. Don’t let the sweet siren cry of a PSL fool you, though; there are plenty of hot days ahead. It’s important to stay vigilant of the temps — especially where pups are concerned. Particularly sensitive to heat, dogs don’t always experience the sweet relief of a drop from 80 degree to 75 degree weather. So, especially if you plan on silencing the annoying hum of your air conditioner, it’s a good idea to invest in tools to keep your pup calm, cool, and collected this fall (emphasis on the cool.)
Below, our picks for the best cooling products for your pups.
Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
