Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I think I have the right form but I live in ky and its pretty hot and humid and I'm afraid to take mishka out at anytime during the day I bring a half frozen water bottle when we go for walks I wait until after noon and I make them short and sometimes take her to the creek I also followthe 120 rule but she needs a good run with the bicycle but even at night and in the early morning is too warm to do any heavy jogging or anything but walk

Husband has given me good advice on this: "Listen to your dog" - ie, monitor her condition, if she's panting heavily, stop, stay in the shade. Don't push her - let her set the pace. Also, I'm thinking mid-day is bad time because the sun is high in the sky. Educate yourself about the signs of heat stress in dogs. My boy turns into an old rug when he's too hot. He slowly saunters through the sun from shady spot to shady spot and flops. He also prefers to walk in the ditches around here - they usually have water running in them so he's cooling his pads which is one of the few places that dogs cool themselves besides panting. The ditch water also wets his belly. But, I don't know about stagnant water in the south - maybe more of a problem them up north here.

I live even further south than you (and hence hotter... yay Mississippi) and my girls do great if I either A) wake up really early or B) wait until evening, like around 8pm. Like Amy said, your dog will tell you if it is too much. You just need to read her body language.

I also live in Kentucky, and I have to take Deacon much earlier in the morning now due to the heat. Mid day is just too hot for him.

I think that 2-4p is actually the hottest time of day. I'd just stick with morning if you like that. Smile
