Dog summer safety tips, brought to you by Bruno’s.

Are you a dog person? 

Us too!  Venice Paparazzi loves dogs!  Want to bring your buddy out on the town?  That sounds like a great idea for all parties involved!  From restaurants, summer safety tips, to parks, to rules and regulations, to the best  pet supply store around, we have the inside line on all things dog!,

1.  Summer safety tips

Please do not leave you dog unattended in a car on a hot day. Not even for a minute. Not even with the car running and air conditioner on. On a warm day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise rapidly to dangerous levels. On an 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, the temperature will reach 120 degrees. Your pet may suffer irreversible organ damage or die.  See a pet inside a hot car?   Learn how to help! ».  


Make sure dogs have access to fresh drinking water and shade.  

Keep you pets off hot sand or asphalt!   Not only can it burn paws, but it can also increase body temperature and lead to overheating.  Keep your dog’s paws cool.

Dogs get sunburns too!   Contact your vet or ask Bruno’s Venice for the best doggie sunblock.

2. Dining in LA?  There are no excuses to leave your dog in a hot car!  

Los Angeles County passed a law a few years back, and, you can now bring your dog to a restaurant with an outdoor patio as long as the restaurant meets certain criteria and allows it!

3.  FAQ’s!  Are dogs allowed on the beach and Venice Boardwalk?    

Dogs are welcome on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, and not on the beach.  Dogs are not allowed on the Venice Beach Boardwalk between 11 a.m – 8 p.m on Sat, Sun and holidays between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

4.  Stay cool at Venice’s  dog park!   

Let your best buddy run free at the Westminster Off-Leash Dog Park  located on Westminster and Pacific. (three blocks from the Venice Beach Boardwalk)

5. Get your dog’s summer booties, baths, food, toys and tags at Bruno’s Venice!
