Help keep your canine cool!

Do you hike with your dog in the Texas summertime? Come learn how to keep them cool and happy, and how to recognize when they’re trying to tell you “Hey, I’m a hot dog!!” Bring your 4-footed best friend and join us on National Trails Day for a revitalizing hike in Government Canyon’s Front Country. Stop and relax in the shade at our “Hot Dog Pop-Up” Station before going for ‘walkies’ and learn how to prevent heat injury to your pup when exploring Government Canyon and other outdoor venues this summer.  Volunteers at the station will familiarize you with your dog’s warning signs of canine heat exhaustion. You’ll also learn on-the-spot first aid measures you can take to provide your pup with the best chance for full recovery.  Volunteers will be on-site at the Pop-Up Station in Parking Lot C at the Frontcountry Trailhead from 1pm-4:30pm. Reservations are not required for this event; Natural Area Entrance fees apply.
