Dogs don't sweat like we do to cool their bodies. If your dog is actually sweating, he/she is pheromones for breeding purposes. If it seems abnormal, take him to the vet for a check up. For the purposes of cooling their bodies, dogs sweat from their paw pads and mouths. Cool him down and he'll stop.

if your dog is sweating you might want to take him/her to the vet, as dogs don't normally sweat. They pant with their tongue when they are hot, rather than perspire or sweat as humans do.

Dogs usally do not sweat. They pant through their mouth to help cool their body temperature. You need to see a vet if your dog appears to sweat.

A canine doesn't have typical sweat glands that humans do. Because of this they may seem to constantly sweat, but in reality are sweating a perfectly normal amount.
