    When summer is coming, me and my dog always do some exercise and also training. We also do it at least 30-40 minutes like you!

    Training CBR's in the summer can be problematic, depending on the dog. One of ours is built slender with a fairly light coat in the summer, and he tolerates the heat about as well as a labrador. The other two are heavier coated, and one is fairly stocky: these two get hot quickly and we watch them carefully. By now, even the water is warm, so the notion that working in the water is cooler doesn't hold up. In and out is better, but there's only so much they can put up with before they are just too hot to work. Watch the tongue for cues that they are getting too warm. We get up extra early, train before the sun comes up, and drive to cooler territory a couple of times a week so we can train harder, but that option isn't available to everybody, LOL. And this time of year I start thinking about conditioning for hunting... just have to be patient another 3-4 weeks til the nights are cooler
