Summer Safety tips for Cavalier Pups!

Summer temps are sizzling up…


The summer months in Florida, especially South Florida can be uncomfortable—even dangerous—for pets and people. It's difficult enough simply to cope with rising temperatures, let alone thick humidity, but things really get tough in areas that are hit with the double blow of intense heat and storm-caused power outages, sometimes with tragic results.

Cavalier Rescue of Florida can help you keep your pets safe and cool this summer. Follow a few tips for healthy & happy summer adventures:

  • Our little Cavalier King Charles Spaniels still need their walks. Midday walks can be too hot and the pavement can burn their paws. Stick to shaded paths, grass, cooler times of the day, shorter walks and lots of fresh water.

  • Watch the humidity. If the humidity is too high, they are unable to cool themselves and their temperature will skyrocket to dangerous levels—very quickly.

  • Maybe a small lick of ice cream…? How can we say no to those adorable Cavalier FACES?

  • Does your pup like the pool? A quick dip is very refreshing! Don’t forget the life jacket for all water adventures, including boating. Or, try a pool float for your pampered pooch- no Pina Coladas!

  • Cool your purebred inside and out. Whip up a batch of quick and easy DIY pupsicles for dogs. And always provide water, whether your pets are inside or out with you.

  • No matter how quick the errand, NEVER leave them in the car.

  • Happy and Safe 4th of July! More pups go missing during July 4th weekend than any other time of the year. Keep your Blenheim, Ruby, Tri-color or Black and Tan safe, secure and calm during fireworks celebrations.


Love, the Cavies! Xo
