Keep your pet super cool this summer when you are out and about. The Pet Cooler Carrier provides a temperate and controllable environment to cool animals and provide fresh, cool water while being transported.
Just fill the chest with ice, and the cold air will descend into the Carrier. The water from the ice melt runs to the drain/water valve, providing water to your pets that they can drink the through the valve. The chest can also be filled with water, not ice. It is available in four sizes: small, medium, large and x-large.

We know it's always a bad idea to leave a dog alone in a car, especially one with no ventilation. Humans being what they are, however, these things happen. So even if you just dash into a shop for a second, soon a new internet-connected dog collar can notify you if your pet is overheated.
The Dog Caller will use a coded chip, a SIM card and a thermistor to send an alert to the owner's mobile phone when the temperature reaches around 26 degrees Celsius/78.8 degrees Fahrenheit around the dog. Rethink Toronto says the "Dog Caller" should be available next year for around $20.

Many of us like to exercise with our dogs. We dug up some timely Safety tips for running with your dog | Health & Fitness Blog | Projo.com from Pamela Reinsel Cotter (via Heidi Ganahl, CEO and founder of Camp Bow Wow).
It's always recommended to bring a water supply along when exercising or for any outing with your pets -- these Handi-Drink Portable Water Bottles work well. It is not our custom here at SCP to refer to dogs as "Fido", but that aside, a summary:
Start slow - If Fido has never been out for a run with you, don't expect him to be up for a marathon.
Be mindful of the weather - Dogs can overheat very quickly and cause heat stroke.
Wear proper accessories - If running in the dark, be sure that you and Fido accessorize with some reflective gear so that you are visible to traffic.
Watch out for Fido's feet - Pavement and asphalt gets incredibly hot on summer days and can quickly burn your pup's feet. Gravel can be dangerous as well.
Hydrate - Make sure Fido has had a chance to drink water and hydrate before you take him out on a run.
Keep a watchful eye - Dogs are people pleasers and if you want to keep running, dogs will often work to keep up even if they may be in pain.
Lather up - Believe it or not, dogs are susceptible to sunburns. If you're running on a sunny day, be sure to apply sunscreen to both yourself and Fido if your dog has shorter hair or are a lighter color.
Eating before or after running - Make sure that your dog does not eat one hour before or after running. Some dogs are susceptible to bloat and eating too close to exercising can be extremely dangerous.

Now that we are in the dog days of summer, could your pet possibly get a sunburn? We all slather on the lotion, but many of our pets are also subjected to the strong sun.
Basically any dog with shaved, short and/or thin hair, white and light hair, white and pink skin should be protected with Epi-Pet Sun Protector Sunscreen Spray. It is the only F.D.A. compliant sunscreen for dogs and horses and is waterproof, but not greasy, with a nice vanilla scent.
It should also be considered for dogs who go boating, swimming and hanging out at the beach or pool, at the dog park, and other dogs who spent a lot of time in the sun.
If your pet has allergic and inflamed skin, please check with your veterinarian. This product should NOT be used on cats.

If you just returned from a grueling week of launching tennis balls into the water or across the lawn, we bet you are sorry you never picked up a handy Chuckit! Ball Launcher. There's still plenty of time and great fetching weather left.

The heat wave in many parts of the country has been relentless. Tough for people to stay cool and hydrated with (or without!) power, not to mention our sweet pets. In hot weather ice cubes keep water cold but melt so quickly. Pet fountains require electricity or batteries.
This Pet's Water Cooler keeps an 8-hour supply of water for a pet chilled all day long using a removable insert lined with non-toxic gel. Includes a second insert for use while the other one is chilling in the freezer. Holds 24 ounces.
