Hydration on the Go!

Hello my Tribe Members!! 💜💜 Your Tribe leader, The Yettie in the Pink Underwear, is back today to tell you about my favorite way to get my water on the go. 🏃‍♂️💧 

My Favorite Travel Water Bottle

I love to travel, but your doggo will love it even more if you have this travel water bottle with you! 😝😉 It’s a cool, flexible water bottle that holds just enough water for me to drink while I’m out, so it will be the perfect size for your doggo. 👍🐶 Also, it doesn’t take up too much space! This travel water bottle comes in 2 sizes and 2 of my favorite colors (pink and yellow). 💗💛 All 3 big pieces of the bottle easily detach from each other so you can clean it without all the hassle. You could even just throw the bottle in the dishwasher, since it’s dishwasher safe! 🧼😱 The lid doubles as a bowl for your dog, so you don’t have to worry about bringing an extra one while you’re out. This travel bottle is all about saving space! 💪👍 Our unique design is BPA free, making it completely safe for me, you, and your doggo to drink from. ✨😁 Having fresh water for your doggo is essential on long walks, especially now that it’s summer. ☀️🥵 Our smart travel bottle comes with a carabiner clip, which makes it easy to attach to the outside of any pack. 👉🎒 Obviously, you don't want to carry around unnecessary weight out on the trail, so we made this bottle from super light plastic and silicone. 💪 This bottle is perfect for people and dogs with outdoor lifestyles and all my people who like to travel with their dog. 🌳✈️ I love that this bottle is even food grade safe, so I don’t have to worry while I’m out on the trail enjoying my fresh water! 🧊💧

Why it’s Important to Keep Your Dog Hydrated

Your doggo’s hydration is just as important as yours and mine, especially if they’re active. 💧💪 Being active doesn’t just mean running laps or playing fetch for hours; going on a hike, or just out for a daily walk, qualifies as being active. 🌳🏃‍♂️ Dehydration is a serious issue, and significant dehydration requires professional medical intervention. 👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️ The amount of water your doggo needs will depend on how big they are and what their diet looks like. Obviously, bigger dogs will need more water. 🐕💦 Your dog will drink about 1 ounce of water per 1 pound of their body weight each day. If your doggo’s diet is strictly dry kibble, they will need more water than a doggo that eats wet food. 🍽🥣  If you’re out with your dog all day (or for any long stretch of time), you need to bring water with you. The more activity they do, the more water they will need. 😁 Dogs can be fussy over their water if it’s not fresh, and will become dehydrated as a result of rejecting the old or dirty water. 🤮🤢 If  you suspect that your doggo is dehydrated, there are a few ways you can check their hydration. Looking at and feeling their gums is an easy way to tell if your doggo is dehydrated. 💕 Normal gums will be moist and pink, but if your doggo isn’t getting enough water, they will be tacky and dry. 😬 Some people like to feel the moistness of their doggo’s nose to check for dehydration, but this actually isn’t an accurate test! 👃🙅 If you don’t want to poke inside your doggo’s mouth, there’s another dehydration test you could try. Gently tug the extra skin on the back of their neck. 🐩✋ If it springs back into place, your doggo is properly hydrated, but if it stays scrunched or falls slowly back into place, your doggo really needs water (or some attention from a veterinarian). 👨‍⚕️👩‍⚕️
