Their main method of ridding themselves from heat, however, is by panting, which is a very different mechanism than what we generally use.


For these reasons, we must take great care to protect our dogs from heat stroke. Dogs with compromised respiration, like bulldogs and pugs, are at a very high risk of easily overheating just because they can't pant very efficiently.
