Summer is showers are here and many dog owners struggle with keeping their dog out of the mud. We put together our top tips on how to keep your dog safe and out of mud puddles.


Why is my dog trying to roll in mud?

Before trying to change your pet’s behavior, it is important to understand why that behavior occurs. Some dogs are simply looking for a way to cool off. Rolling in the mud can provide them some relief from the heat. Like many behaviors, some dogs roll in the mud because of boredom.

Ways to keep your dog out of the mud.

There are several different methods to keeping your dog out of the mud. In some cases, using traditional fencing around frequent areas that tend to get muddy after rain can block off access for your dog.
