Ill have to ask my wife but she found this really cool "bowl" that hooks up to your leash for the dog. It actually folds up completely flat and its very small. So what we do is bring a bottle of water with us on our walks and every few minutes we break it open and pour water into it and she drinks it up.
FTSE and I hibernate in the air conditioned house
Two little having fun together
Miss Mabel stays inside as much as possible.

A/c, water and cooling pad!
if my dogs go outside in summer the first thing i do before i let them is fill up their kiddy pool with plenty of water and multiple bowls of water.. i then will monitor their play and watch them.. if i feel they are getting to hot i will bring them back inside with the ac..i sometimes even put a fan on the porch while they are out playing..
All the above. water, fan, ice, swimming pool, sprinkler (got your attention @ddnene Walter).
We carry once it warms here portable water everywhere feel like we have young kids again lol , Air conditioning in everything also fans in bedroom during night going , one of the things they all love is a kiddy play pool , very low sided so a bully can get in and out easy all are guys love the pool , Odin waits till Tilly in the day and now Rosie get in then drags it around the deck with them in it they love that . As the summer really takes hold we get plastic soda or large pop bottles and its a ritual before bed to fill them half way put them in the freezer so when the hot day begins and were away from the house we can take them with us , as the ice melts the water is good and cold and they can drink it or you can rub them down with the cold water no matter where you are with a towel and the cold water , those frozen bottles keep your beer cold in the cooler also or wine or scotch ......... just sayin ......
YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...
...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
...you snore like a chain saw.
...it takes too much energy to beg
...your snore is louder than your bark
...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
...you're the loudest snorer in the house.
I am in India. It is not yet April and the temperature has already 35C or 95F.
If this is the case, we can expect 38-40C or 100-105F in April/May.
Bit worried how my dogs (6 yr old Boxer and 1.5 yr old bully) are going to handle it.
They are already lying listlessly in the apartment. Fan is on 24 hours a day.
But then we also have scheduled power cuts and cannot afford to deplete the battery backup.
Luckily they are on raw meat diet, so they get fridge cold meals every day.
This keeps them hydrated along with cold water to drink.
Everyday I put an ice pack on their paws and head for a few mins each to cool them off.
Dudley gets ice cubes made with stock and some of his kibble frozen into them or sometimes to keep him busy he gets a BIG ice cube made in an old ice cream container, he loves them. We also TRY to spray him with the hose although he is not a big fan of that at all The best thing we bought last year was his "Cool Coat" its made from a rubbery type material but soaks up water like a sponge and keeps your dog cooler by evaporation, it feels very cool to touch and when he dries out you just wet the coat again, it certainly helped Dudley a lot. We are in the UK not sure if you can get them everywhere? Heres a couple of photos of Dudley loving his coat, he wears it inside too!
Elmo goes out to do his business and I make him come right back in to the AC, I also put a fan on him, he loves this. I am going to buy a cooling mat soon, I am sure he will love it, I do Hope So
Dog cooling mat. Which are the best?
