How to cool down a Husky

March 14, 2018

Even in the heat, Huskies still require lots of exercise. They were bred to run long distances which makes them extremely athletic. Your Husky will have no issue running long distances in the cold (though you may not enjoy it) but they do have an issue running long distances in the heat. Knowing that, it's important you take steps to keep your Husky safe and comfortable.

Here are some tips and tricks to keep your Husky safe in the heat:


  •      Take them for walks in the early morning or after the sun has set
  •      Provide your Husky with shade
  •      Provide them with plenty of water
  •      Keep your dog cool using air conditioning, Cooling Vest, or Cooling Mat
  •      Never shave your Huskies coat in the summer, it will make them susceptible to sunburn
  •      Pay attention if your Husky shows these symptoms of dehydration or overheating
  •      lethargic
  •      sluggish
  •      dry gums
  •      sunken eyes

Prevention of dehydration and overheating is the best way to keep your Husky safe in the heat. Some affordable prevention solutions for your Husky include a cooling vest or a cooling mat. The CoolerDog Cooling Vest and Collar can fit great on your Husky and allow them to move freely while staying cool. If you are sitting in your backyard with your Husky try the Hydro Cooling Mat for a cool place for your dog to lay down when hot.
