It isn't just your human kids that need activities in the summer it is important that you also think about your pets. Cats may be happy hanging in a window watching the world go by resting on the top of an air conditioner but what about your dog?

Dogs tend to need activities. They like car rides but the summer isn't always the best time for those due to the hot temperatures. By the way, never leave your dog unattended in a car during hot weather or really in any weather for that matter. if they can't go everywhere you are going it is best to leave them home.
