Oh Dog! A reader (and relative) mentioned to me that fans don’t really cool down dogs. So why do I do this?
Well, I got right on the ball and found an answer from none other than Marilyn vos Savant, that smart lady that knows the answer to everything!
And guess what? Fans don’t cool dogs!
Why? Well because we don’t have sweat glands, except for our nose and paws of our feet. Fans cool by evaporating sweat, and since we dogs don’t sweat, fans don’t work…. except for our noses.
See where my nose is? I’m cooling my nose!
However, if you have a dog and need to use a fan to cool, then first wet your dog. You can use a hose, a spray bottle, or *gasp* a bath! Then lying in front of the fan WILL make your dog cooler!
Just make sure when he dries to wet him down again.
Stay cool my friends!
