Are you going to leave your naked dog alone in the camperden?
If so, you may want to be prepared for some awkward moments.
“If the dog is not wearing pants, the dog can be exposed to heat, humidity, and other environmental factors that can contribute to overheating,” according to a blog post by the US National Wildlife Federation.
“When it comes to keeping dogs safe in these environments, people need to be very careful,” said Jill Davenport, a wildlife ecologist at Florida Atlantic University.
“If you leave a dog outside with the windows closed, the heat can cause the dog to get dehydrated.
The dog is more likely to get heat stroke if it is exposed to humidity, which can be even more intense if the humidity is very high.”
The National Wildlife Conservation Association also notes that some dogs, like cats, are prone to overheated if they’re kept outside.
There are plenty of ways to keep your pet safe, but if you’re going to bring your dog outdoors, it’s important to make sure you’re prepared for anything.
If you’ve got a dog, the next time you’re walking outside with your dog and you see something that looks like a dog chewing something or a scratching noise, do not freak out.
It’s not a threat, said Davenpool.
“Even if you don’t see a dog biting, you can still see a lot of hair and skin,” she said.
“A dog can bite, and it could also tear up the fur.”
If you’re worried about your pet biting someone, Davenports said to make an effort to keep the dog on a leash.
“We are very fortunate that dogs are smart enough to know when they’re getting in danger,” she added.
“You want your dog to have a good relationship with other people, so if you are out and about with your pet, you should take steps to keep them safe.”
