I think my dogs appreciate the a/c and heat more than I do, and I fully appreciate my a/c and heat. When it’s really hot outside and my dogs are out, they don’t dig holes in the ground or lounge in the shade, they go to the front door and scratch until someone lets them go inside to soak up the a/c. I always thought dogs like being outside. You see dog food commercials of dogs running across fields and dogs are used to herd cows and sheep and drag sleds through the snow. I thought it was a dog’s natural instinct to be outdoors. Not my dogs. They would rather stay inside and soak up the a/c. I’ve even tried to play outside with my dogs. I’ve tried to teach them to fetch a ball or frisbee. When I took one for an actual walk, she acted like she was about to drop dead. It’s a good thing I have a big yard because down the block is too far from the a/c for my dogs to willingly go.They will run after the toy and pick it up, but then they take it to the front door and scratch so that they can go inside, with their toy, and soak up the a/c. And it’s not like my dogs like the cold. We get few cold days here in the deep south and my dogs don’t like to go outside in it. The prefer to stay close to the living room space heater. But, like I said, we live in the south, and most of the year the dogs get to soak up the a/c.
