With a lot of our events taking place in the summer, we like to be fully responsible, comply with DEFRA regulations and share some of the best practice that we have found.

Keeping Dogs cool in the Summer is very important, and large breeds with heavy coats can have particular issues.

It is vital that dogs always have access to clean fresh water, and that there is a flow of air around them.

Best Practice:

1. Ensure you use air conditioning when driving

2. Make certain that you keep plenty of cool water, and ensure you have a cool box to keep it in.

3. Vent fans for cages are a good idea to keep air circulating

4. Dog Cool Coats are a good idea.

5. Dog Stakes - allow you to sit your dog in the shade etc and move them around the the day.
