Physical Characteristics: Assess your dog's traits. Thick coats, warm noses, and frequent panting may indicate a warmer constitution, while thin coats, cool noses, and a preference for warmth suggest a cooler constitution.

Response to Environment: Observe how your dog reacts to changes in their surroundings. Warm constitutions may thrive in cooler climates, seeking shade in hot weather, while cooler constitutions may prefer warmer environments.

Health Patterns: Notice any health issues or patterns. Warm constitutions may be prone to skin inflammations, while cooler constitutions might experience respiratory issues or joint stiffness.
