We’ve just stepped into the warmest season of the year! For most of us, we can’t wait to go swimming, relax on the beach, and enjoy listening to the sound of waves. However, high temperatures and sunny days don’t go hand in hand with French bulldogs. That’s why we made a list of the top 9 summer essentials that will help you keep your little gremlin cool and safe in the summer.
Why is it important to keep your Frenchie cool in the summer?
As a French bulldog owner, you have to know that these batpigs should not spend plenty of time outside during the summer. Like any other brachycephalic dog breed, Frenchies are incapable to regulate their body temperature without the help of cooling items. Since they have short airways, Frenchies can’t cool off the air they inhale. Besides, they have short legs, so their bellies are very close to the hot asphalt during strolls.
By protecting your Frenchie with our cooling items, you’ll save them from heat stroke and developing sun burns on their sensitive paw pads.
What are the best items to keep your French bulldog cool in the summer?
