I don't usually do much to change the nature of their bedding. Sophie is going to wrap up no matter the temp. Of course, the AC keeps them cool inside. If Kenzi is very warm, she will push her blanket away and lie on the crate bottom. I don't mind as she will get the blanket back when she cools off. In the Summer, we usually have a small fan blowing on Kenos to help cool her off when she comes in.
They are both black, so they get hot faster than a lighter-colored dog.
