Watch for warning signs of overheating in dogs, which include:
- Sometimes the vomiting is clear and just looks like water
- Keep an incredibly close eye on your Puppy to make sure they are not vomiting in the Ocean where you cannot easily see
If you notice these signs it is time to head home immediately. Hydrate your Puppy, cool them down and monitor them closely for improvement.
Watch out for signs of heat exhaustion
Humans sometimes love to bake and tan in the sun. Puppies do NOT!
If you are going to be at the beach for anything over an hour you will need shade. Make sure that your dog has a shady break area. Under a beach umbrella, tree, or picnic bench. Alternatively, take a Puppy tent for them to cool in.
Make sure your dog is wearing a collar with identification tags before heading to the beach.
It’s important to have proper identification in case he or she gets lost while at the beach, even if your dog is well-behaved and obedient.
Most beaches require dogs to be wearing a collar with identification tags, so be sure to check the regulations ahead of time. This will help ensure that your furry friend can get home safely in the event that he or she becomes separated from you.
