Dogs notoriously get overheated in the peak season, which is why finding ways to keep them cool is vital. This can be done by letting them take a dip in a dog pool or dedicating a platform bed to keep them off the hot patio.
We've gathered a great selection of gifts and products, from flea collar treatment to tennis balls to a nerf gun that shoots up to 50 feet high. See below the best ways to spoil your dog.
