Question Havanese and Hot Weather

Hi everybody. As we enter Hurricane Season down hear I am getting concerned about the heat. If we get a storm we may be with out power for several days in very hot and humid weather. A generator will at best give us the use of fan.
Does anybody have any ideas or recommendations on what we can do in such circumstances? I would hate to trim their gorgeous coats.

I think there are other threads that may address this issue and answer your questions .
I think during this time the most important thing to remember is that they remain cool and well hydrated and that they not suffer from heat stroke ..

I have a few of the battery operated fans for shows. Another thing I have that I don't use very often is a cooling mat and vest. My friend saw this at a dog show and she actually made them herself so I took advantage. You get them wet and the beads absorb the water and you put them in the freezer in a large ziplock bag. I have used mine once at an outdoor dog show that was really too hot to be at. Although, this is a grooming nightmare <BG> but it would be something I would definetly use in that type of situation. Although it wouldn't stay frozen long.

That cooling mat is a great idea. I can keep them in a cooler and keep changing them out as they get warm. I plan to have alot of ice available.

Those cooling mats sound like a fantastic idea!
I did a search and found these; wonder is these would be good?

Thanks Lynn,

I am getting them right now. The vests will work also but they are on the expensive side.

And thanks Amada for sugesting it.

they also sell cooling collars. it's a collar that has a velcro strap, you soak it in water and keeps your pup cool. i use it when i walk my dog in florida. don't know if you can keep it on him for a long period of time but it's worth looking into.
