    How are your mastiffs coping with heat? My girl isnt liking it, it is rough days ahead of us and my girl cant wait colder days.

    Kryten loves the cold and hates the heat. Anything above 20C (68F) and it is too hot for him to want to be doing anything outside except lounging. I do have a white coat that I put on him if he does need to be outside and it really helps keep him cooler as the sun reflects rather than be absorbed by his black fur.

    I would definitely agree with the 68 degree threshold. Actually, the cooler the better. We get high humidity levels, which makes matters worse. AC is definitely a must.

    Our dogs sure like to go outside, but the cool air in the house is welcoming, for sure. When I take them for a leashless run out-of-doors, the dogs are huffing and puffing when I get them back in the car. To conclude, I think the 68 to 70 degree F temp is preferable to the mastiffs.
