Get your squad ready and prepare to conquer this heat wave. In Toronto, we’ve skipped spring and went from winter straight to scorching hot summer. We’re used to it, but getting dressed is confusing when it’s cooler in the mornings and then hot during the afternoon. Plus, when we’re trying to conserve some energy by using the A/C sparingly, we try to find more creative ways to beat the heat.

Since not all of us have the luxury to hike and find peaceful rivers that bring their own breeze, Get Leashed has found some other ways for you and your dog to cool down during the summer.

Remember to try and sit in the shade as much as possible if you are walking your doggies for a long stretch, and especially if they’re super furry. Always have lots of water available to keep you and your doggies refreshed.

And if there’s a Starbucks along the way and has mercy on your floof, maybe pop in for a few minutes of air conditioning, an iced latte, and a Puppacino! Whip cream solves everything.
