The BC SPCA advises: on hot humid days it’s best to keep pets inside with plenty of cold water; outdoor exercise and walks are best in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler; bring water and take breaks in the shade; if pavement is too hot to comfortably place your hand on for several seconds, it is too hot for your dog. Some dogs don’t know their own limits; use caution with exercise such as running and fetch as you may need to stop your dog from overdoing it. Photo: SPCA.bc.ca
