TIPS FOR HOT WEATHER:
Deep plastic bowl of water, metal absorbs heat.
Doghouse under trees. Tarp over kennel. Silver repels sun. Tarp over another type of area.
Baby pool of water, lab-type dogs love it.
Sprinkler. Hose that mists the area.
Fan on covered patio. Fan hooked to chain fence away from house, keep outdoor extension away from dogs, lining the fence.
Battery operated camping fan in fenced area, hook to fence, use rechargeable batteries (expense involved with batteries).
Frozen water bottles and jugs or pitchers placed in favorite areas. My dogs bury them to make the dirt cooler.
Bamboo shades in carport to adjust.
