How much sun is okay for dogs? Dogs, like humans, can indeed get sunburned! Their skin is sensitive like ours, so do keep an eye on your favorite fido if they are sun worshipers. Especially if they have areas of thinner hair, light fur or pink skin... (boxer ears and tummies may need special attention)
How to keep your fur babies safe from the sun...
- Use dog safe sunscreen (yes they have it, ask your vet) test to prevent irritation.
- Monitor their sunshine hours (worst between 11 and 4)
- Make sure they have shade (and water) if they're out all day.
- There are also pet clothing alternatives that can help too.
