Dog School Shropshire In this beautiful weather we are having its really important to remember that dogs do not sweat in the same way as humans. Dogs can only cool down through the pads on the bottom of their feet. Help your dog to keep cool by giving your dog some water and shade. Maisy here enjoys a paddle but please remember to check the water is safe first! #dog #dogsofinsta #dogsofinstgram @mais_mogs #dogwalk #water #weather #cooldog #doggypaddle
