Where I am it's been very hot and humid and that might slow him down. Is he eating, drinking and eliminating as usual? If not, and he's still lethargic I'd be off to the Vet. That's exactly how my Jet presented and she had Parvo, even though she was fully vaccinated. A Lab that won't eat and a JR that won't play are both signs something is wrong that warrants Veterinary investigation.

his habits are the same, he eats regularly at his lunch time, he drinks a lot of water and he eliminates as always two times a day, but he doesn't play at all...
I live in Greece, so the summers are very hot as hell but when I have a shower enters with me and get wet so his temperature go down

Welcome Johnnygood!

It could of course be the heat....

Does it get cooler at night though? And if so is dooger more playful at night?

Keep a real close eye on him, if nothing changes, a call to your vet is probably safest.

Have to agree it could be the heat. We have Alaskan Malamutes and they sleep all day now. They play early in the morning, and all night long!!! So I would have to agree, if he isn't even interested in playing once it cool at night, I would vet him to be certain.
