Many dogs enjoy cooling off from the summer heat with a dip in a cooling pool, lake, or stream. Bring along a toy or two to have an interactive game of fetch or keep their quiet attention while you relax at the water's edge.

Who doesn't love to skip stones into a lake on a summer's day? If you're tired of your dog's look of disappointment as she paddles around looking for rocks that have long since sunk, this toy's for you.
Colorful floating "stones" have a flat bottom just perfect for skipping across the top of the water. The Kurgo Skipping Stones Dog Toy comes in vibrant colors you can see easily from a distance.
