3 EASY Lickimat Recipes to Keep Your Puppy COOL & CALM This Summer!
Did You Know? Your dog runs an average temperature of 101-102.5℉ so, when you think it’s hot outside, your puppy thinks it’s REALLY REALLY HOT outside! Since dogs cool down through their tongues you can help your dog keep a cool temperature even on a hot summer day.
To help fight the heat we have 3 Lickimat Recipes to cool AND calm your puppy on a hot Summer day!
We’re using Lickimat Slomos for these recipes because they hold the most food which means they last longer.
Licking is a calming mechanism dogs/puppies do when they are stressed and overheating is stressful and frustrating for humans and it’s no different for your dog/puppy. So instead of just putting these recipes in a bowl, we’re putting them on Lickimats they can lick off making it a long-lasting treat that will cool your puppy while keeping them occupied and calm.
Trainer Tip: You do not have to be outside for your puppy to overheat. These recipes are very effective at keeping puppies cool outside but, don’t underestimate how hot a puppy can get inside too.
