A dog, especially one that is healthy and fit, should have no problem exercising in hotter temperatures. Unfortunately, we cannot make this a generality for all dogs, especially since a major sector of our canine population is neither fit nor healthy. And to top it off, obesity, as with us humans, has gone out of control with our canine companions, escalating the risks of heat-related problems.

So please, when those temperatures rise, be wise. Heat stroke is a very serious condition. If you observe excessive panting with your pup when it is hot, get them to a cool place or hose them down, and if you sense this is not helping, an emergency visit to the nearest veterinary facility is a must.
