Dogs do sweat, although not as much as humans. ... The primary cooling mechanism for dogs is ...panting. By breathing air quickly over the wet surfaces of the inner mouth and lungs, the dog's pants accelerate evaporative cooling in much the same way that a breeze across a sweaty person's skin speeds up cooling. ❤️😍🐶🐾
