    How are your mastiffs coping with heat? My girl isnt liking it, it is rough days ahead of us and my girl cant wait colder days.

    Kryten loves the cold and hates the heat. Anything above 20C (68F) and it is too hot for him to want to be doing anything outside except lounging. I do have a white coat that I put on him if he does need to be outside and it really helps keep him cooler as the sun reflects rather than be absorbed by his black fur.

    I would definitely agree with the 68 degree threshold. Actually, the cooler the better. We get high humidity levels, which makes matters worse. AC is definitely a must.

    Our dogs sure like to go outside, but the cool air in the house is welcoming, for sure. When I take them for a leashless run out-of-doors, the dogs are huffing and puffing when I get them back in the car. To conclude, I think the 68 to 70 degree F temp is preferable to the mastiffs.

    Denna starts panting and slowing down when it's over about 65F... but when it hits 90F and the sun is out, you'll find her sunbathing on the hot fake grass (it gets scorching in sunshine)...so... I'd say she likes heat, she just doesn't like to MOVE in hot weather.

    Bella doesn't do well in the heat here....we have a lot of humility here.....So we do live out in the country so far we haven't needed the ac on as we open our windows at night with fans drawing the hot air out and another drawing the cool air in.... first thing in the morning we close up the house.... it stays cool enough that I will normally have slippers and a sweater on.
    Bella stays in the house from late morning until the air cools off in the late afternoon or early evening. So far we're good with this routine
