An easy way to keep your dogs cool and occupied during the spring and summer heat is to just turn on the sprinkler in the yard. Many dogs love playing in the water, like York and Titan, two members of the AKC Canine Partners program, owned by Tracy Reust of Florissant, MO.

Just remember to always supervise your dogs when they are playing around water. Make sure they do not ingest too much water or get overly tired. But playing with the hose or a sprinkler can be a lot of fun, cool exercise for your canine buddies on a hot day.
