Intro: Dogs have a hard time adjusting to the heat. When the temperature is high, dogs start panting to cool their bodies. Some dogs are more at risk to heat, stroke, and dehydration than others. Their tolerance can also vary based on fur coat, their age, or weight. Shorter snouted pets such as bulldogs, boxers, and pugs can also have breathing issues in the heat.
