Other Ways To Keep Your Spaniel Cool

There are a number of ways to keep your Spaniel cool during hot weather, including:

Keep Them Appropriately Groomed

Keeping your Spaniel’s coat short and tidy during the summer months will definitely help to keep them cool. Whilst Spaniels do shed their fur, it’s always sensible to keep brush and clip their coats to ensure they aren’t too thick and are free of knots and tangles.

We take our Spaniel to a professional groomer three to four times a year, making sure her coat is short during spring and summer.

Let Them Swim And Paddle

Allowing your dog to go for a swim or paddle in a safe, clean and shallow pond, lake or stream is a great way for them to cool off. Plan an appropriate place for your walking route and you’ll have a happy, albeit soggy, dog!

Keep Them Cool At Home With Some Essential Accessories

There are a number of really useful and relatively inexpensive accessories you can purchase to help keep your Spaniel cool, including:

  • Cool mats
  • Cooling bandanas
  • Cooling vests

Final Thoughts

Keeping your Spaniel cool during the summer is super important and one of the best and most fun ways (for you and your dog!) is using a paddling pool. They love the splash around and you can use it as an opportunity to play and interact with them - it’s definitely a win-win. Enjoy!
