Information on Owning a Shorkie Puppy in the
Summer or a State that is hot all yr round!
Ahhhhh! The beauty of Sun.. and also the HOT HOT
Many people looking for a Shorkie want to know
how a Shorkie will fare in the heat.
The number 1 rule is
Hydration , Hydration , Hydration.. did I say
Nothing is more frustrating and makes me angry
to see a dog in any situation where it is clear
it needs some water. Us humans unlike dogs can
fend for ourselves and get a glass of cool water
when we feel the need. Our dogs and pets rely on
us to know when they need it.
Its really all about common sense when you live
in a hot climate or it is the summer time. But I
have learned over the years it is better to
educate people and tell them than to not say
anything at all.
In the summer or if you live in a hot climate
Leave water out for your Shorkie at all
times!!!!! Just we need to stay hydrated so does
your dog or puppy.
Heat can be fatal to any animal just as can it
can be a human but do not forget a dog has less
mass and will be effected quicker than a human.
Do not for any reason leave your Shorkie out in
the heat for linger than 3 to 4 minutes. Enough
time to go out and do his business.
If you are going somewhere leave your Shorkie
puppy at home, Dont ever leave your Shorkie in a
car when it is hot out side
The temp in the car can soar to heat that will
kill your dog!
If you do have to go somewhere and take your
dog... make sure you have water and SHADE!!!!!
like a little pup tent if you can get one!
Keep your puppy is a PUPPY CUT in the summer! If
you do not know what a puppy cut is please call
