Just in time for the heatwave hitting the UK, pet shop Pets at Home has launched a brand new summer range for dogs, designed to keep your pups cool in the warm weather.

The range, which includes items that can be used inside, outside or while on walks, will help keep your pets from overheating in the sun.

What's more, the range is now available to shop in stores and online, and there's 25% off until 9 July!

The range contains a whole host of fun and practical summer items for dogs starting at £2.25 in the sale.

For water-loving pets there's a dog paddling pool available in two sizes, that's shallow enough for your pup to climb in and out.

There's also cooling mats, cooling vests and a cooling tent that can be used in the garden or packed in the car for day trips. Water bottles, pet sunscreen and freezable ice cream toys for dogs will also help keep pups cool on the move.

And, if your dog is always looking to get in on the fun at a BBQ, the range includes a novelty dog-friendly beer!

SHOP THE RANGE

Speaking about the launch of the new range, Claire Gavin, Director of Creative Development and Innovation at Pets at Home, said: "With foreign holidays seeming a long way off for many, we’re turning to our gardens this summer and getting out and about with our pets in the sunshine.

"But just as the sun can be damaging to our skin, it poses a risk for the health of our pets too. We know that keeping pets cool during the summer months can be a challenge, so our new range has been created with the health, welfare and safety needs of our pets top of mind, whilst ensuring they can keep cool and have fun in the sun too."

Pets at Home has also shared guidance for pet owners to help keep their pups happy, healthy and comfortable in the heat. The guidance includes never leaving your pets alone in the car even if there is shade or the window is open, take a water bowl or bottle on long walks, avoid walking your pets at the hottest part of the day, stick to shaded areas on walks and never leave your pet in a conservatory or warm room when you go out.
