Since the heat has started to get warmer I'm wanting some ideas on how to keep my dog cool. He always has access to water, but he pants a lot. Not to where I am worried and want to take him to the vet, but sometimes I feel he pants when he shouldn't need to if that makes sense. Maybe I'm overthinking lol. Since it is shedding season I've been brushing him like crazy. We go outside and play with the water hose and we live near a pond and a river that he likes to go swimming in. The river he'll just go about 4 ft. in. He loves laying on cold tile and I turn a fan on at night just for him because he loves sleeping in front of it. He is not an ice cube lover, he'll just spit it out and lick it. I thought about buying a kiddie pool and filling it with water or ice. Just looking for some suggestions. Thanks!
