During this time of the year, it is especially important to keep a dog hydrated on a regular basis. The heat outside makes it so that this time of the year is a common time for dogs to get heat stroke or become too dehydrated for their health. It is extremely important that I do what I can so that I am able to keep my dog happy and healthy.
Mostly this means encouraging my dog to drink a good amount of water rather than just laying around without drinking any. To do this, I have purchased a Petmate water fountain that supplies my dog with wonderful and clean water that he can drink all of the time. I have to keep an eye on the fountain to make sure that fresh water is added on a regular basis.
My dog loves to watch the water splashing in the fountain and is always encouraged to drink from it when she sees this. I am just glad that I have something like this fountain to help me ensure that my dog is able to keep drinking plenty of water all of the time. My dog stays hydrated and a whole lot happier.
