Atticus would sleep all day long in the car with the air conditioning on full blast as cold as it can go if he could. He immediately falls asleep whenever he finds an air vent or a fan. He will wedge himself in the passenger seat floorboard in my tiny car just to get his face in the air conditioning vent at your feet and will fall asleep in just about any uncomfortable looking position you can think of.
At night when he SHOULD be sleeping, he is up and down restless in his crate and panting because he's hot. I leave the fan on in my room and the temperature in the apartment is pretty darn cold. Cold enough to need long sleeves and leggings inside in the middle of Georgia summer. However, I cover 1/2 of his crate with towels because if it's not "den-like" he screams his head off. He's in his big boy crate so there should be some air circulation, right? It's a 48" and he's only 13 weeks old and 30 pounds.
My question is, do any of you use any type of crate fan or cooling pad to keep your fur babies cool? If so, what have you found to work the best?
