4 Ways to Beat the Summer Heat At Your Event
Howdy, Compadre! Cheese here with some tips about staying cool and living well at your summer Tiny Tails to you event. If you’ve lived in Austin during the summer months you know that temperatures can heat up quickly, which is fine by me, but not so cool for my furry brothers from another mother. The Tiny Tails team always take extra precautions to ensure us animals stay cool and hydrated during the event, but we also require that our customers take certain precautions as well to help beat the heat. To help you out as you plan for your summer event, here are 4 hot tips to keeping it cool.
1. Move your event inside
“Wait, a petting zoo inside!?” You read right, friend! We always come prepared with floor coverings so that we can set up in your living room. All of us animals are lap-sized, leave no mess, and don’t take up much room. After your event is done, our staff members take extra care to clean up so you can keep on L-I-V-I-N. If you still don’t believe me, take a minute to read through some of these great reviews from other indoor events that we have done in the past.
2. Use a pop-up canopy or patio area
If you don’t have a lot of shade in your backyard, no problemo! For a small fee, you can add on a pop-up canopy to your order that our staff members will bring and set up at your event. Or, if you have one already we can just use yours (you can purchase canopies at most major retail stores). We can also set up on a covered deck or patio area given that there is enough space for our fencing.
3. Set your event up in a well shaded area
Regardless of the season, we always require that outdoor events be set up in spaces with ample shade for us animals. However, this is especially true in the summer months. Being in a well-shaded area can cool the area by 10 to 15 degrees because it is blocking direct sunlight. So, when considering having Tiny Tails to You at your summer event try to find a space with lots of shade that spreads over a large portion of your yard or outdoor area.
4. Provide a mister system or large fan
If it’s within your budget, you may want to look at purchasing a large sized fan or a mister system. These options tend to me more expensive than the other options above, but you might think of these items as an investment in future parties at your home or business , plus you can create that ocean-spray feel right there in your own backyard cabana.
Hope these ideas open up your mind to new possibilities to beat that Austin heat and keep it cool.
