Geoffrey Posted July 23, 2007 Report Share Posted July 23, 2007 My poor little agility dog is really bad at heat tolerance. He has to take breaks every few minutes to cool off and get water, while the other dogs in class are still going strong. He can't even play with his tug because he's panting too much (can't pant and tug at the same time). Does anyone have ideas to help him deal with the heat? He stays outside a lot during the day so he should be used to it, and he is - he just can't run/jump much without getting way too hot. By the way, he's not a BC - He's a 23" and 68-70lbs Labrador (the center dog in my signnature). Actually, he's quite thin (many labs his height weigh 90lbs or more), he's just got a heavy frame with thick bones and lots of muscle packed on......not ideal for heat transfer.
