BODY SIZE
Dogs come in many shapes and sizes. The smallest breeds include the toy and miniature
varieties, such as the Toy Poodle, Papillon, Chihuahua, and Shih Tzu. These dogs usually
weigh only 5 to 10 pounds (2.3 to 4.5 kilograms), or even less. Medium-sized dogs include
many of the terriers and spaniels, which weigh in the 10 to 50 pound (4.5 to 23 kilograms)
range. Larger still are the retrievers, shepherds, and setters, which often weigh 65 to 100
pounds (30 to 45 kilograms). Finally, the giant breeds, such as the Mastiff, Komondor, and
Saint Bernard, can approach or exceed 200 pounds (91 kilograms). Of course, sizes vary
within breeds, with males usually being larger than females. Mixed-breed dogs include all
size ranges.

METABOLISM
Dogs have a higher metabolism than people. They breathe faster, pump blood faster, mature
faster, and have a higher normal body temperature (see Description and Physical
Characteristics of Dogs: Normal Canine Physiologic Values ). Young dogs seem to have
even more energy than children. However, this high metabolism comes with a shorter life
span. A common rule of thumb is that 1 dog year equals about 10 to 12 people years for the
first 2 years, and then 4 people years (per dog year) after that (see Description and Physical
Characteristics of Dogs: Dog Years versus People Years ). Actual life span depends on
health and size, with small breeds generally living longer than larger ones
TEMPERATURE REGULATION
Dogs are generally much better at conserving heat than at cooling themselves. In sled dogs,
who can survive outdoors even in bitterly cold temperatures, the fur acts as an insulating
blanket that retains the heat generated by the dog's high metabolism. However, in hot or
humid weather, most dogs have difficulty. Dogs cannot sweat, which is an effective form of
evaporative cooling. Instead, dogs lose heat primarily by panting. These rapid breaths (10
times faster than normal) are an attempt to lose heat through evaporation by moving hot,
moisture-filled air in and out. During the short, shallow breaths in panting, little air can be
exchanged in the lungs. In fact, dogs must stop panting periodically to take a good respiratory
breath. Drinking water also helps dogs cool down, and the canine hair coat helps insulate
from the sun.
Because the cooling system of dogs is relatively poor, certain summer situations can be
dangerous and even life threatening. Sadly, many dogs die of heat stroke every year (see
Emergencies: What to Do at the Scene and Transport). The most common problem is
associated with being shut in a parked car. Even with the windows rolled down, the inside of
a parked car can quickly reach 150F (66C) or more in the summer, which can cause heat
stroke and death in a matter of minutes. Other dangerous situations involve being penned or
tied out in the sun (without access to shade) or being locked in a poorly ventilated travel
crate.
Ways to keep dogs cool during hot weather include air conditioning, spray misters, shade,
dips in a wading pool, or gentle spraying with a garden hose. Keeping dogs wet during the
heat of the day provides a method of evaporative cooling. Plenty of cool, fresh drinking water
should be available at all times.
