Default Am I pushing my GSD too hard? How much heat can she handle?

So, I have a german shepherd. She's medium to long hair.
We're in South Australia and my dad likes to walk her through the bush, but he likes to walk when its hot.
It's around 35 degrees, which is 95 farenheight. He'll walk her in that sort of heat and over for about an hour.
The bush is more a hike, it's got hills and all that.
Although she's been walking that track all her life, she's getting old and reaching 8 years old soon.

I literally just can't stop the dog from going, because my dad encourages her and she doesn't understand that she cant handle the heat for that long.

Will she get heatstroke? Or can she handle the heat? Please help.
