I don't know about dogs, but for humans..... It actually takes more energy for our bodys to hydrate with very cold water than it would with room temperature.
I live on the edge of the desert in Southern CA, where it's usually at least 90-100 degrees every day during the summer...the dogs go out to play either early in the morning or in the evening when it starts to cool down. I don't make them stay outside during the heat of the day, nor would they WANT to at that time..they're pretty well committed to staying in the air conditioned house.Red Dobie said:It's April and here in Arkansas we are having over 90 degree heat wave.
What can I do to help keep Allie cool. I thought of putting ice in her water. Is that a good idea or not?
