Dog Days of Summer: Tricks of the Towel

Next up in the Dog Days of Summer series is a tip I picked up from some ugly dogs last month. When temperatures are rising and you want to relax outside with your pooch, bring along extra towels to keep him refreshed. Simply soak in water, wring out over a pet, and then drape the icy goodness on his resting body.

Now, even though any towel will do in a pinch, I especially love the Cool N Dry Towel for Dogs ($12) – even soaked in cold water, the liquid's quickly absorbed and it stays lightweight. To use, simply place the spongy dimpled side over your hot dog, and cool him down super quick.
