I have a large dog, and he doesn’t adore the weather that we’ve been experiencing.
Even though it’s technically fall, it’s been cool after a long, hot summer. If you combine this with the fact that we’ve experienced four months of drought weather, then you’ll understand why my dog likes the cooler temperatures. He’s been completely angry, however that’s why I built him a shed for the summer. In his shed, I put an a/c unit through the wall. My dog adores the a/c. Without the a/c in the summer, he lays around all day looking pathetic. During the winter time, it’s a completely unusual story. He’ll just lay outside in the snow having an absolute blast! He can’t rest if it’s too hot, and he would never want to be trapped inside where it gets stuffy and hot. However, I can’t let him inside often, regardless if I have my furnace or the a/c running. He’s a big dog and destructive accidentally, so that’s why I’ve built him a shed with his own a/c. Ever since I bought the a/c unit for the shed, I’ve noticed that he’s been a lot more active lately and he’s much healthier. In fact, the lower I set the a/c, the more comfortable my dog seems to be. It would be better for him if I lived somewhere North, where the two of us didn’t need a/c to stay cool. I could just use a furnace, and he could be in the cooler air.
