Do Dogs Sweat?

What a fascinating question begging for an answer - do dogs sweat? And if they do, would there be a market for dog deodorant (well, this wasn't the question, but I think that breath fresheners might be a better idea).

Some curious visitor to UClue has asked this question. Before clicking on "do dogs sweat", try (without googling) guessing the answer - we all probably heard as children that dogs "cool themselves" through their mouths and not sweat. Is it true? Did you get that right after having read Pinkfreud's answer?

To which one of UClue's regulars, Probono, reacted by saying:

What a great Answer!
Even though I have owned several dogs over the
years, I had no previous knowledge on this topic.
However, I was once told
that 'only horses sweat ... gentlemen perspire and ladies glow'.



Have other weird dog questions? Try:

What is the name of Isaac Newton's dog?

I'd like to try eating dog - where is the best place?

dogs that dont shed and dont have doggy smell? (well, naturally they are not allowed to sweat as well)

Is it healthy to feed my dog a strictly vegetarian diet?

Where did Paris Hilton buy her dog tinkerbell?
