Event Description

Keep your dog safe and healthy in the Houston heat

Join Bayou City Outdoors & REI as we explore all the places to take your dog to play and learn what you need to know to keep them happy & well in the sweltering summer heat


There is nothing better than having your best friend along on those summer time strolls, hikes and lake trips. However, summer can be especially harmful for our furry friends.

Join Bayou City Outdoors & REI as we explore all the places to take your dog to play in the summer and all the ways to keep them safe and healthy from heat stroke.


We’ll be talking about:

* Where to take your dog in the summer to keep them cool and safe

* Pick up a detailed list of Dog Parks & Hiking Trails that are dog friendly

* Dog safety in the Houston summer and how to tell if your dog is overheating and heading for a big problem (hint – it can happen VERY quickly)

* Fit your dog for a life jacket and how to determine if they need one.

* Fit your dog for boots and learn when they need to wear them and when they shouldn't


Did you know that there are over 25 official dog parks

in Houston and the surrounding areas?

Dogs are allowed at most Houston and Texas State Parks but there are rules that you must follow to avoid a hefty fine! Did you also know that just like you, your dog could get sunburned? But, unlike you, they can’t cool their bodies by sweating.


Come get informed and keep your dog safe and happy in the summer!


We are proud to say that after this class last year, one of our attendees recognized the symptoms of heat stroke and was able to get their dog to the vet in time to save their dog’s life– a true Happy Tail!

7:00 pm, REI 7538 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX 77063.
