Arizona really starts heating up in May

Hydration is key and knowing the signs of a tired pup. Each dog is different and the handler needs to respect the weather with dog in mind.

Train your bird dog to know the command Water and always have clean fresh water in multi places. Leave a full water bucket by the truck when you take off hunting.

When it’s hot, be smart about working your dog. The current temperature reading is always reported in the shade, most of the time we are working our dogs in direct sun.

Allow your dog to cool down before putting them back in the kennel. 

Insulated kennels will increase the inside temp by at least 20-30 degrees! – so be careful when using these kennels in warmer weather. Allowing the dog to cool down and hydrate before kenneling up is a must.
