There is a serious heat wave in southern California. While taking Nalani, our two year old black pug; for a walk I bring cold water so when she looks thirsty I can offer it to her. I'm wondering if it is best to just skip her daily exercise when it is above 80 or if keeping her cool with water is good enough. I am a new pug mom and I don't want to do anything that may hurt her. I was thinking I could even bring a mist-er bottle to spray her down. Our average walk is about 4 blocks each way. Thats 8 total (to the beach and back). It takes about 30 minutes to walk her to the beach and back.
If you have any suggestions I'd appreciate it. We can't walk her at dusk because my husband and I both work. I really enjoy our walks before I have to go to work, but maybe I should stop them when we are having a heat wave. I'm just not sure how sensitive they are to heat. Any seasoned Pug owners help would be great!
