    Poor Kip gets so hot at agility class. Normally he is so energetic, but the heat just drains him. He has a very heavy coat and is used to the cooler climate at my house (2000 ft elevation). The agility field is near sea level, and very hot and humid.

    So I’m thinking of ways to cool him down? Cooling or ice coats/vests? Fans that blow mist that I can attach to his crate? A cooling mat for him to lay on?

    If anyone has product recommendations, that would be terrific! I’m looking for affordable stuff:)

    Not that I know it but I like Piper´s mom´s Shower

    A wet towel will cool down

    Be really careful with a cooling mat - it will get so hot if the sun hits it.
