If you’re having an off day, the likelihood of you being on point with training is not good. You’re at risk of getting frustrated and angry – two emotions that have no place in animal training and certainly don’t set the scene for patience.
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.
