My two Yorkies wont listen when I try to tell them its too hot for their walk everyday when I get home from work. They yap and yap at me until I take them, there is no use reasonning with them over it. SO here is what do before I walk them. I take the water hose outside and lightly spray water on them, I dont soak them, just get them wet enough so they will stay cool during our walk and it seems to help a lot!

I get a big plastic bowl (one that will fit in the freezer)
Then chop up some carrots (leave some bits quite big so they sink because the smaller bits will float) and other treats,
then fill the bowl with water
pop the carrots and treats in
and freeze it
then turn the bowl out in the garden and they will go at it for ages and it really cools them down, just like a big ice ball lol

and when we go the beach i usually take a spare towel and soak it in the sea for the journey home just incase he gets a bit warm
or any hot day i will get a cold wet towel and drape it over them.

Chyna will lay in the sun even if there is shade nearby...go figure...and I know she's hot. I fill a big tupperware container with water and put her in it, get her all wet and it cools her right off. She has just now gotten to the point where she will walk in it and stand in it by herself. I wanted to get her (and me...haha) a plastic kiddie pool today but they were sold out.
I give her ice cubes too...she scoots them around on the floor like a cat chasing a toy and when it gets small enough, she eats it.

LOL! Of course he does! Part of being well-suited is having the good sense to find shade, isn't it? Mine have some favorite shady places where they turn the dirt underneath until they get some cooler dirt to lie on - usually after they've taken a dunk in the wading pool so they get nice and muddy underneath At least Bimmer's taught them to wash up before coming inside

Exactly. many people think that just because its an African dog it can be in the sun when its very hot, but the truth is he's just adapted to finding cool places.

One time we were on a beach and teh sand was super hot, well he decided that he need not burn his paws so he just sat down on his behind with his paws in the air. Not sure if this has ANYTHING ( )to do with instinct, but it one of the funniest things I have ever seen him do.
