I know I don't need to remind you not to put a crated pup in direct sunlight — he's not trying to get a tan! In addition to also selecting a spot away from windows or heavy objects that could hurt him in an emergency, good ventilation is key. If your apartment gets super toasty (and you can't leave the a/c running while you're not home), pick up this K-9 Kooler.
On sale for just $9.50, it runs up to 100 hours on 2 D batteries — so more cost-saving than corded fans — and clips to any crate or kennel for home or travel use. Stay cool, dogs!
