Default Constant Panters

Does anyone else up here have a dog who is always panting no matter how cool it is in your house? I've noticed this with several of my past fosters. It could be the double coat,but that's just a guess.

Onyx pants alot, but she does settle too. She is on the anxious side, so I assume her panting has to do with anxiety, not that she is overheated.

Sasha pants a lot but we do live in Oklahoma!!! She was born in a heat wave and seems to handle it rather well. But, she always pants.

Shasta is a very tense dog who has a hard time settling and she pants nearly all the time. We're working on a long down-stay with her. I think it will be good for her overall.

The only one that pants in my house is the golden and that is when he has to go to the bathroom really bad. He never asks to go out and will hold it forever, but if he has the poops and he has to go, he pants so hard that the bed shakes.

My Uma is the most hot natured dog ever. I got her in January and it was brutally cold, even for Georgia. By the second night I had her I learned to sleep with the window nearest to her crate cracked otherwise I'd never get any sleep. In the summer she sleeps next to the AC vent in the bathroom on the cool tile floor.
I'm sure once I start running the heat at night I'll be leaving the window cracked for her again.

Rey is a panter. Drives me nuts sometimes, especially when I'm working at my desk and she's panting her hot breath on my leg. It can be particularly obnoxious when I am wearing shorts because it is accompanied by drool. She just now followed me from the kitchen to the laundry room, panting with the excitement of it. When she's not panting, she has to stick her nose on me.

it's not an intense pant but he does pant most of the time, when he is excited, moving his spot, or just sitting there. it looks like he is pretty content when i see him sitting there panting?

I have wondered about panting and how a dog feels physically at that time. My current GSD pants quite a lot. Mostly after exercise in the summer, when it would be expected, but also after chewing on a bone or rawhide. Sometimes, he just pants as he is resting, long after any exercise. At all times during panting, the entire length of the bridge of his snout is warm to hot. When at resting heart rate, and sleeping, the entire length of his snout is cool to cold. I have always likened this to humans having a flushed face, after exercise, or in general just not feeling top notch, or not at resting heart rate. Just an observation, I guess..maybe a little off topic.
