You need to approach the hot weather very carefully with your pup.
The specifics will vary widely depending on your dog’s breed and where you live but here is a quick rule of thumb. When the temperature hits about 70-80 degrees, that’s when you need to start giving extra breaks, bring extra water, and look for shadier spots to play with your pup outside. When it’s above 85 degrees, you’ll want to generally avoid prolonged exercise outdoors with your pup.
A couple of factors that make it even more dangerous is if your dog is part of the brachycephalic group, like pugs and boxers. If your dog is obese or if your dog is less than 6 months old or elderly. In all cases, exercise caution and bring plenty of water for your dog.
