    Every season you can get a dog in shape.
    Never had any problems whatsoever with it.
    Start early in the morning, cool them of enough, inbetween and after.

    @Aseelman gave a good advice ; Put your dog’s welfare first, use common sense and don’t get money blind.

    I was never a fan of the dogs and the heat, but......I look at the odds as much as I can and then I factor them into the plan going forward.

    Most can't get a dog right in the cold weather and even fewer can do it in the heat. So if I feel comfortable with a dog in the heat then I feel like I am one up on the 'fraternity'.

    If you nail it down in the heat the odds swing heavily to one side.

    AGK and F.W.K. like this.
  3. I always loved dogs, can't imagine my life without them. I got 2 labradors and I try do everything for them to feel comfortable, especially when is hot outside.
  4. I even bought one more AC for them to not suffer from the heat, thanks to the guys from with this, they installed it fast and had a great attitude towards me and my dogs, now I can always count on their help if I will need something else in the future and my dogs can sleep well during this time of heat, which was a big problem until now.

    I live in Florida and here you can't be jealous of the dogs that are taken out for a walk around 9:00 a.m. It's too hot for them already. I always walk my dog around 6 a.m. and after 10 p.m. He has a very voluminous coat, it's especially hard for him to be in the heat. In winter it's easier, then I can take him out at lunch time. I`ve had an air conditioner in my apartment for a long time so it`s much easier for the animal. And you also need to give him water more often, cold (but not ice cold) water should be available at all time. Also I spray him with water. There is also such a useful thing as a cooling mat.
