So, being from Texas how often do yall train in the summer? Train everyday with just plenty of water? Evenings?
Not really. Remember a dog has to work physically harder in the water. The intense heat and high humidity make for poor evaporation once they get out. Add that to a hot dog and you've got trouble...thethunderboot said:even if the water is warm its better than none. It is not the water itself that cools them off but when they get out, and the water evaportaes...that is what causes them, and you, to cool.
Makes sense. Jello doesnt' hold up well in the heat...Angie B said:I don't.... I head to Wisconsin until September. Anywho....
Train very early in the morning before 11:00. Forget set-up's that may require a big hunt. You can't progress with a dog in the yard or older. You can maintain them, but not progress them. IMHO
