We have a large dog, and he does not like the cooler temperatures that we’ve been experiencing.
Even though it’s fall here, it has been a super warm fall after a brutally warm summer. However, if you combine this with the fact that we’ve been experiencing drought weather too, then you can understand why our dog, who enjoys the cooler hot and cold temperatures, has been so sad. This is why we built him a shed this summer. In his shed, we put an air conditioning system through the wall. Now, he enjoys the air conditioning system. During the summer, without the air conditioning system running, he lays around all day looking like death. During the Winter season, it’s a completely unusual story, then he lays outside in the snow and has an absolute blast! Our dog can’t rest when the furnace is on, and he would never want to be stuck inside where he feels too warm and stuffy. However, the two of us can’t let him inside the house regardless if the furnace or the air conditioning system are on. He’s a sizable dog and can be accidentally destructive, which is why we built him a shed with a working air conditioning system. Ever since the two of us purchased the air conditioning system for the shed, I’ve noticed that he’s been much more active lately, and he seems healthier. In fact, the cooler I set the air conditioning system, the more relaxed that he seems to be. It would be a little better for our dog if the two of us lived somewhere north, where the two of us didn’t need an air conditioning system to stay cool. We love the furnace, and he loves the air conditioning.
