21 Pooches Enjoying The Dog Days Of Summer [PHOTOS]

The days are getting longer and warmer, and you know what that means: your dog is getting bored! We all know that kids hate being cooped inside as soon as the school year ends, but our pets feel exactly the same way. Dogs must have some kind of sixth sense, because they know when we have free time, and they demand to make the most of it.

Maybe your pup likes to stay at home with the AC turned on, but these dogs love to leave the house and live life to the fullest while the weather is nice.

Remember, while you're out enjoying the nice weather it's important both you and your pet stay hydrated. Bring along extra water for your four-legged friend, and treat them to a dog-safe frozen snack once you get home.

It's also important to keep your pet safe from nasty diseases this summer.

If you're out in any wooded areas, check your dog for tick bites when you get home. And remember to keep your distance from any wild animals, because just getting close to them could make your pet sick.

7. Safety first!

8. "Look, I made new friends!"

9. "Exercise? Nah, I'm good right here..."

10. The new sprinkler works great

11. Always swim with a buddy

By now your dog is probably itching to break out and live life to the fullest. Just like us, when the sun is shining they want to hang out with their friends, hit the pool and cut loose. Just make sure they don't get into any trouble!

If your dog loves the outdoors but you don't, this can be a difficult time of the year. But just be glad there's no snow on the ground.
