How to safely crate your dog in warm weather

Posted by Jaimie Meredith on

Crating dogs in warm weather can make dog owners hesitant, but taking a few precautionary steps will give you and your pup a paw-sitive experience! Remember these helpful tips this summer.
 
HOW TO KEEP YOUR DOG CRATE COOL IN THE SUMMER HEAT:    
 
  • Place your crate in the shade as much as possible.
  • Use a reflective shade cloth over the crate to protect your dog from direct sunlight.
  • Attach a cooling fan to your crate to allow ample air flow and ventilation.
  • Hydration Station! Provide your pup with at least a half-full bucket of water, especially if you're leaving your dog for an extended period of time.

 

"While dogs can certainly overheat from spending too much time in direct sunlight, it is important to remember that air flow is the key to keeping your pets comfortable during hot days." - Ed Thomason (handler)

 


 

"Does the temperature of an aluminum crate get hotter than a plastic crate?"

The answer is no. Aluminum can cool faster than plastic. Plastic tends not to feel as cold or as hot, but this can be a double-edged sword: plastic has higher heat capacity, meaning it will stay at a temperature longer than aluminum.
