Temperatures are still set to rise as Britain wilts under an unrelenting heatwave. While you might be enjoying the opportunity to top up your tan without going abroad, the hot weather can be extremely uncomfortable and even dangerous for dogs. Dogs can suffer fatal heatstroke within minutes, so it’s vital that they have plenty of access to shade and cool water.
