Snoozer Cozy Caves are perfect for dogs that like to burrow and nestle under covers, providing warmth and comfort throughout the year.

As our dogs age, they often require extra support to rest comfortably. Our Orthopaedic Cozy Caves feature a thick foam base and a soft pillowtop liner.

Six Simple Ways to Keep Your Dog Cool This Summer

  • 2 min read

Because Snoozer loves your dogs, too.

1. Stay in the shade

While some dogs love napping in a patch of sun, it’s not the best choice during summer months. You might let them bask for a minute or two, but then it’s time to encourage relocation. Entice them to rooms with solid flooring and good air circulation.

Tile, hardwood, linoleum -- all make great spots to cool off and take a snooze.

2. Walk with the early birds and the night owls

Some dogs will gladly give up walks altogether during hot months, but if your canine athlete is committed to his exercise regime, then it’s time to set your alarm early. Pre-sunrise and post-sunset walks are easier on a dog’s eyes, skin, and especially their pads, which will appreciate the cooler concrete!

If you must walk during full daylight, avoid sidewalks and keep your strolls short.

Stretch those legs before the sun is fully up.

3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

This one goes for the whole family! During the summer dogs may get a bit lethargic and let up on their normal water consumption. Adding extra bowls of water around the house will remind your dog to take some sips, and will make it easy for him to do so.

4. Sew a DIY cooling blanket for your pal

Some dogs LOVE cooling mats, while others can take them or leave them. This is a great project for beginning sewers (say, perhaps, for a child whose summer camp plans have been cancelled….) Fetch the pattern here!

5. Or, you know, a frozen water bottle will do

Toss a not-quite-full bottle of water in the freezer; once it’s frozen, wrap it securely in a towel* and tuck it into your dog’s bed (allow us to suggest a Cozy Cave or an Overstuffed Luxury Dog Sofa). She will enjoy cuddling up to something cool!

*The towel is important! Direct contact between the frozen bottle and your dog’s skin could cause injury.

6. Keep your dog groomed

While your instinct may be to request a summer buzz cut from your groomer, many breeds must maintain a longer coat for cooling purposes. Talk with your groomer and reference breed-specific organizations online to determine the best summer style for your pup. At home, regular brush-outs can help long-haired breeds stay cooler, and most dogs love to have their ear tips, underarms, and paws gently wiped with a cool, wet washcloth.

And what are the things you should never do?

  • Leave your dog in the car unattended
  • Leave your dog in the garden for extended periods of time, with or without shade
  • Leave your dog home alone without air conditioning

Have a happy, healthy, SAFE summer!
