After watching my girls deal with the summer heat in Wisconsin, I decided to write yet another article to help other Lab owners.
Read the Article "The Summer Heat and Labs" Here
I truly hope it helps and would love any feedback on it or any other pointers anyone would have.
Great tips, thanks!! ;D I need to start brushing my guys everyday.
Psst, if I may, should this be "drink" instead of "bring"?Since the dogs will tend to bring their pool water,

Wonderful! I didn't even catch that! Thanks!Originally Posted by jzgrlduff
Thanks for the tips! I didn't realise about the brushing...I brush Buck every other day...I guess I can start doing it everyday during these hot days

Very comprehensive. ;D
Good point about hot pavement/blacktop. Maybe to emphasize that, point out that the air temp just above that blacktop, where the dog would be breathing, is 'superheated too, at least 10-20 degrees F above the true air temp in full sun.
(can you tell we are also auto racing fans :P )
All in all, very good article. ;D

That is s good article...thanks for sharing it. When I get my puppy, it will be black and living in Memphis, it gets plenty hot. So this information is very helpful. From what I read, chocolates and blacks are especially vulnerable to heat because of their dark coats...
