It’s officially summertime and we know you love taking your best furry friend with you everywhere you go. Sometimes those places can get a little too toasty so we put together this list of 11 items to help your pet stay cool during the hottest of months. This list is full of must haves to keep you and your pal going through the summer cool as a cucumber.

  • Cat and Dog Cooling Mat

    This reversible pet mat from Unique Petz from Target will help cool your pet without electricity, can be used indoors or outdoors, folds for easy storage and most importantly keeps your pet cool. Activated by your pet’s weight, it will keep your dog or cat cool for up to three hours. Don’t sleep on this mat (pun intended).

  • All for Paws Chill Out Ice Bandana

    This All for Paws Chill Out Ice Bandana from Amazon is a must have in our house and should be in yours. Heat stroke is one of the biggest threats to dogs during the warmer months and even more so for flat faced, barrel-chested pups like Bulldogs. Due to this we make our French Bulldog don this whenever he decides to take an extended nap on the deck, which is often because he loves the sun. It’s as easy as soaking the bandana in water!

  • Chill Out Ice Ball

    Keeping your dog cool with this All For Paws Chill Out Ice ball is as simple as filling it with water and throwing it in your freezer for a few hours when you know it’s going to be a hot day. We like to throw ours in the doggy pool for our French Bulldog to “bob” for it. Fun for the whole family.

  • Cooling Dog Vest

    One of the easiest ways to cool your pet down quickly is a cooling vest. This version from Target fits a wide range of sizes and offers a zipper closure. Not sure about you but trying to get my Bulldog to out something on without a zipper is like wrangling a herd of turtles. Anyway, your pup will love the soft, stretchy fabric and feel stylish in it’s ombre green/blue design.

  • Fish Pool Dog Toy

    The final item on this list is a non-inflatable, fold-up dog pool from Sun Squad at Target. All I can say about this is that we use it every…single…day during the warm months.
