Dogs are pack animals and would love nothing more than to be a part of your family. If you are unwilling to let them live inside with you, please make sure they are safe & comfortable outdoors.
SUMMER TIPS FOR OUTSIDE DOGS
Make sure your dog has plenty of clean drinking water. Refill often - before the bowl is empty. A dog cannot sweat to regulate body temperature and heat stroke is deadly. A dog house is not sufficient shelter from the heat. The sun turns them into heat boxes. Your dog does not enjoy laying in the direct sun without shade for hours in this heat or laying inside these "cookers." Provide your dog with alternate shade from the sun with a cross breeze or better yet - bring your dog inside your home or basement to keep them safe.
