SAFETY FIRST!

You should always be aware of your dog's environment and what you can do to keep him safe! Watch for:

  • Heat Intolerance
  • Dehydration
  • Parasites (See Our April Newsletter)
  • Hot Pavement/Concrete

Dog Parks

Spending time with your dog at a dog park can be a lot of fun! It is an opportunity for your dog to explore new surroundings, meet new friends and have a dogtastic time!

KennelResorts offers 2 beautiful private parks, as well as, access to a shaded trail around the property!

Hiking/Trails

Taking your dog on a adventure can really break up the routine of a walk around the neighborhood.  We are so lucky to have a number of great trails and parks in Cincinnati and the surrounding area to explore.


All Tails is a great website/app that allows you to map out the Best Dog Friendly Trails in Ohio.  Not only does the site/app provide you with a map of the trail, you can also sort potential trails by difficulty and length.  So if you want to take Fluffy on a short hike before the heat of the day you can find the perfect trail AND rate it for future reference.

Learn Something New

If you've been in Cincinnati long enough, you know that outside in the middle of summer isn't always where you want to be.  So, why not take advantage of a training course or fun indoor activity to bond with your pup and beat the heat! Here are some ideas to help get you started:

  • Agility Training
  • Nose Work/Tracking (think of it as a mini search and rescue for your dog's favorite treat)
  • Obedience/Trick Training

incinnati is rated in the top 10 to 20 cities in the country (depending on the source) for being a pet owner, and for that matter, being a pet.  We have so many great amenities at our finger tips. So take advantage of them!
