It's hot out there and you need to be careful not just for yourself but your dog as well. Although they may be the cleverest person in your house at finding food, when it comes to looking after number one it is a different matter. Sometimes your dog will find a shady spot and spread themselves out low to the ground out of the heat. However, if you have the type of dog that likes to chase sticks, a ball or just their own tail then they might run around for hours in direct sunlight.
As we are sure you are aware the dangers of heat to dogs are very real. They don't sweat like humans, but pant instead.
