    Default Ideal Weather for Bulldogs

    I know these dogs are very sensitive when it comes to hot weather . In my area, temps reach over 100 degrees in summer . Does anyone know what is the ideal state to raise an English Bulldog, just wondering .

    I use my AC to keep Porkie cool. This week, it be 90 degrees , no fun lol

    Thank you

    I don't know which state would be ideal, but we here have very hot weather in summer. This coming week is going to be near 90's. Sometimes I wouldn't normally need the A/C for myself-but I have it on for the dogs!
    To be ideal, I guess you would have to have two homes-winter and summer, in two states! Also they each have a little fan on their crate(where they sleep at night)

    I was thinking of buying her fan to keep her cool. I had Oregon and Washington state might be fitting . I thought of the rain might be an issue. In the meantime , we are in Cali.

    I am from Scotland. We think summer time is a cloudy day, we wear no tops in the rain lol

    When it is hot you can cool your baby down with the garden hose, Also freezing fruit into bone shapes also helps to cool them down when there chomping through it

    I bought small metal fans at the Dollar store($10.00). They have a metal stand attached. Instead of using it as a stand, I hung it on the crate door with fan on inside at the top. These were called "personal fans" Other fans I have seen for dogs were more money and battery operated.
    these are electric-when crate door is closed wire is not accessible to the dog. The bigger dogs have fans I sit on the floor outside their crate.

    The trainer we went urged us to take Walley-Bubba outside for a few minutes when the weather is warm.
    That's not to say leave him outside in the heat all day.
    Just a few minutes.
    To get him acclimated.
    Why?
    Well, what happens when the A/C goes kaput???
    He will be OK if acclimated.
    If not acclimated, then OH DEAR!
    Not saying walk him on a really hot day.
    Just get him used to the heat a little bit at a time.
    So far, he is mastering it quite well.
    Biggest concern - he still goes ballistic over hoovers and carpet cleaners... I can't hold him!
