Hot days have come back, and it is time to buy your dog its own fan. This item is essential as canines cannot sweat, and it is hard for these animals to stay cool. You can help your dog to stay cool by adding an external cold element. The canine will begin to pant so that it can inhale cooler air. The problem is that such a solution does not cover the entire body. This is the reason dogs like to lie down on a cool surface. It will also drink cold water if you give it.
Do not buy a standard floor or table fan to cool your dog.
This is as the blades could injure your dog. You can use a bladeless fan like
the Dyson models. A number of tower fans are dog-friendly too. Other than a dog
fan, you can help your canine to cool down by installing a cold water fountain
at home. Whatever you do, it is not a good idea to use a standard issue floor
or table fan. They are unstable and could be tilted even by the smallest
animal. The blades will hurt the dog even with the presence of the safety grid.
The dog's hair may get tangled with the rotating blades.
It follows that bladeless fans are the only fans suited for
dogs and other pets. Bladeless fans are called in the market as air
multipliers. Their working technologies are different than standard fans.
Bladeless fans could be either floor, tower, or table fans. Choosing one is
your personal decision. The common choice is a tower air multiplier. In case
you own a bigger dog, a low fan makes a better choice as it will nor tilt
Silence is important
Before you buy a tower air multiplier, make sure that the
device is a silent one. The ideal fan is a compromise between blowing power and
quietness. The fan should not only continuously blow air but also keep the room
it is in quiet. Most bladeless fans are more silent as the technology itself
has noise reduction built in. The sole drawback is that these bladeless fans
are more expensive than the regular ones. Dyson is the leading manufacturer of
bladeless fans, but they are costly.
If you prefer cheaper
bladeless fans, go for Lasko. The Wind Curve Tower model makes for a superb fan
for your dog. It has a timer so that it will give the dog a temporary wind flow
and stop by itself even if you are away. It is quiet and will not wake up the
dog when you turn it on. Users have three settings to choose from, from a
gentle wind to a high-velocity blow.
