How to be a #sunsafesnoot this summer!
It's officially the season of sun, surf and Sandy Snoots, and we're here to promote the importance of a #sunsafesnoots beach culture!
Before you hit the beach for some wet and wild adventures this summer, check out our tips below on keeping your furry friend safe from the sun. Don't forget to bring a beach towel too!
Tip #1: Supervise your pup at all times
Not all beach days are breezy. Remember to supervise your pup at all times, and keep an eye out for signs of heat exhaustion such as excessive panting or a dry snoot.
Tip #2: Check the ground temperature
Before heading outside for a walk or playtime in the sand, be sure to check the temperature of the ground first. Touch the ground with your hand - if it feels too hot to touch, then it's way too hot for your pup's paws.
Tip #3: Provide plenty of fresh drinking water
Ensure your pup has regular access to plenty of fresh drinking water. It's important that they stay hydrated, especially on hot and humid summer days.
Tip #4: Take regular breaks in the shade
Playtime doesn't have to be over, but it's important to take frequent breaks in the shade. A leafy tree or a beach umbrella is a great way to give your pup a rest from the sun's rays.
Tip #5: Consider pup-friendly sunscreen
We recommend the use of a quality pup-friendly sunscreen for full snoot-to-tail sun protection. Make sure it doesn't contain zinc oxide as this is toxic to dogs. It's always best to check with your vet about the best option for your pup!
Tip #6: Don't forget your Sandy Snoots dog rashie
Choose from one of our signature designs and hit the beach in style! The colourful fabrics used to create our rashie designs are certified UPF 50+ under the Australian standard for sun protective clothing. This means our rashies provide all-day sun protection for your pup.
