We all love our pets, and that means we want them to have a great summer right along with us, but sometimes hanging in the heat isn’t easy on our four-legged best friends. Lucky for us, Katie Milleman of the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society stopped by The Social to share some products that will keep our furry friends entertained and safe throughout the warm months.
Check out the gallery below for some fantastic pet products, and watch the video above to hear more from Milleman (and for some cute dogs!).
