The walk is for the dog, not for you. Yes, you read that correctly. I will likely ruffle some feathers with this one, but that’s fine with me.
Good judgment can go a long way in preventing your dog from having a heat stroke. Between the hours of 10 am – 4 pm during the summer months, it is way too hot to have your dog on the beach, out for a run, going wild at the dog park, or out for a long walk. High-intensity exercise is not wise in this hot and humid climate during the summer.
