Chihuahua owning former boxing world champ David Haye has delivered the world’s first weather “pawcast” for dogs.
The national forecast for canines has been launched by MORE TH>N Pet Insurance to raise awareness of the climate-related dangers dogs face during these hotter, humid and more stormy summer months.
Mr Haye said: “I’ve been a two weight world champion and fought in front of millions but being a weatherman for dogs is definitely a first. However, as a dog lover and owner I know too well the hazards our four legged friends face on a hot day. I hope that by presenting a weather pawcast I can help raise awareness of the issues that MORE TH>N is highlighting and encourage all dog lovers to be more mindful of how the warm weather affects their pets especially given the current temperatures”
This weekend’s forecast estimates almost a million dogs have been identified as being in ‘very high risk’ temperature zones, with the mercury expected to rise to 28 degrees celsius in some areas.
