How do YOU keep your dog comfortable in your vehicle
Not sure if this is in the right thread....
I'm just curious what others do to keep their dogs cool while traveling in the vehicle.
If we are just going for a short ride, Ava is in the front passanger seat and I keep the air condition vents pointed at her.
If we are going on a long ride, I have her kenneled in the back of our SUV. When she is kenneled, she is not happy unless I have a blanket covering the entire kennel. Therefore, what little bit of AC that would have reached her all the way in the back of the SUV, is definatly not going to get thru the blanket.
So....I have a large bottled water that I keep frozen, and when we are going on a long drive, I put the frozen water bottle in the kennel with her. I figure this is working 2 ways. 1) she can lay against it, etc to keep cool and 2) as the ice is melting, the bottle sweats and she can lick the condensation off if she is thirsty.
Just curious of what others do.
