Gadget the Trash Tracker dog wears his "doggles" to keep the sand out of his eyes when the boat is underway. He always wears a leash when he's off the boat, and always makes sure he doesn't leave behind any dog waste on the beaches.

Keep your pet on a leash no longer than six feet

Your pet is just as susceptible to the heat as you.  Keep your pet hydrated and cool - a jump in the lake may be just the thing!
