    Default AC for the heat

    Spring is coming and soon summer! Just wondering how you all cool your houses to ensure a safe temp for your bullies? Do you have an AC system in your house? Or just fans?

    Currently we have no AC installed. It gets pretty toasty in our house during the summer months... Close to 25 degrees Celsius. Before we got norman we just turn on fans everywhere to mitigate the heat. Now I'm thinking of getting AC....

    With bulldogs, you have to make sure they stay cool. Over-heating can be very dangerous. I would think an AC is best. Also, in the summer - in addition to the AC, we put a fan right near Tyson's bed... he sleep so much better with it on.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    25 celsius is too warm for a bulldog to be in for longer than a few hours, and even a few hours may be too much depending on the humidity.

    You should definitely get an AC.

    How do you handle it though? That's way too hot for me. Once it hits the mid 70's here- my AC is on 24/7.

    We live in Georgia (the deep south) so AC is mandatory. It is standard in every type of dwelling. We even have an additional AC unit for just the downstairs part of our house so yeah...2 AC units and a pool

    Fans will help and 25 deg C (77 deg F.) is getting close to being too hot, but fans will help, I would say if it gets 26 deg C. it is too hot for them. In the summer time we leave out house at 77 def F. and run the ceiling fans, and our bullies are OK.

    We have central air for the babies. As soon as it gets warm we put it on and keep it on until the fall.

    I hate AC, but walk around my house in a sweatshirt in the summer for the comfort of my bulldog and my boyfriend. They're both polar bears if you ask me. But I agree with everyone, 77 is too hot for a bulldog, they need it much cooler.
