This dog knows exactly how to cool down on a hot sunny day. See where he is hanging out!

What’s a dog to do when he or she is hot and needs some relief? If it’s a desperate situation and you’re out and about in the park, your pooch may do what this dog in the video has done.

Heatstroke is a serious form of heat injury for a human and for a dog. Your furry friend is more susceptible to overheating, so it’s important to watch for signs such as heavy panting, weakness, or excessive thirst.

Overheating is most likely to happen during the summer months, but late spring weather when the temperatures start to rise can also be dangerous too if your pet hasn’t adjusted to the weather change yet. Dogs can feel the heat as much as we do, so ensure that your beloved canine has plenty of water to drink.

What do you do if your dog is overheated? The best way to help is by soaking his/her body with cool water. Or take a cue from this adorable black Labrador that found the perfect place to lie down in. This pooch looks utterly happy and content, and enjoying every second.
