    It has been 100+ or close to for most of the last month. Doing 3 mile runs at 5:15 am. At night, doing obedience, maybe one or two 100 yard marks on land and then hit the lake for couple retrieves. Pain is asphalt or concrete is so hot, that I usually drive the mile down to the park/lake versus walk or ride the bike.

    We only do small time training early morning and evening Tuesday thru Friday. It's been upper 90's to low 100's every day for the last 3 weeks.
    We do our "big time" training Sat, Sun, Mon.
    First we let the dogs swim in ice cold (from snow melt) creek water, then do "free-roading" for 6 miles.............. then drive 30 minutes and do land training followed by water training in water that's cold enough that the dogs might even shiver.

    It is so hot over here I almost hated to leave the office..............almost ;)

    We go out right at sundown and do some very brief water work. That's about all I think we can do in this heat. On a brighter note, cold beer sure tastes good this time of year :yes
