Hi everyone! I have a Border Aussie that is 18-ish months and a rescue. She is a lovely lady but she is having some issues with the Midwest heat in MN. She always seems a little distressed over the heat. I have a list of everything I have been doing below, but I am not sure if I can be doing anything else to help her. She does not sit outside for extended periods of time and she spends a lot of the day at work with me in the air condition with a cool tile floor. I know people recommend not to shave and I don't want to do that. But would it be helpful to trim her a little bit at all? She has so much hair around her neck, ears, and belly! All thoughts are appreciated. Tried and currently doing list - - She drinks plenty of water when she wants; 4 cup water bowl in every room of the house and at work (she comes to work with me) that are constantly full. - Access to a river at the dog park but she is afraid to get in any further once it touches her belly. - Terrified of bath tubs and showers - Cool, wet bandanas are not helping too much - Tried a Cool-a-roo bed and she absolutely hated it. - Terrified of fans - Has zero interest in ice
