Be cool

Dear Dogs Today,

Please could you advise me how I can keep by Bull Terrier puppy cool this summer? He is white and I have been told that suncream is a good idea. Can I use human suncream on my pup? And how can I avoid him suffering heatstroke?

Thank you,

Jen Greenfield, by email

  1. Hi there,
    I am the owner of a Sun Worshipping Border Terrier!

    You could drape a damp towel over him and encourage him to lie in the shade. You could also make a treat-filled ice block. Simply fill up a bowl with water and place treats in, then freeze and give to your dog once completely frozen. It will keep him cool as he licks the ice to get to the treats.
    I personally wouldn't use suncream because my dog would lick it straight off.
    Good luck.
