Hello from California

Post by nine00 » Wed Jul 13, 2011 12:48 am

Hello everyone,

I came across this forum thanks to Lynn from Blustag.

I've been looking into getting a dog for my new house, but never got the chance to because of work, school, and just being plain busy. I came across the Tamaskan breed a couple years ago and had my mind set on that breed once I was ready to take the plunge. Now that I'm settled in and found a job where I can work from home, I know that I am ready to get one.

The only concern that I have with having a Tamaskan dog is the summertime heat that comes with living in the California Valley. In the middle of summer, we will get some weeks that will push the 100 degree mark. Since Tamaskan dogs are normally in cold weather climates, would the heat be too much for them if I were to get one?

I would love to hear from anyone that has some experience with this.

Thanks!
-Thanh

Welcome to the forum! Enjoy your visits here! :)
There are already a couple of Tams in California and Hawaii, as well as Australia; temperate climates are OK as they usually adapt pretty well - especially when you take extra measures to keep them cool. We actually have a whole topic on Climate in the Care Section: HERE! And several topics in the Health Section relating to Heat Stroke (how to spot the signs) and warnings about dogs in hot cars, etc. ;)

Hello Thanh, welcome to the forum :) I live in Texas where we have been hitting the 100s all week. My dogs stay inside most of the day but we will go for walks in the mornings, they fare pretty well :)

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!
