Mooch I think snakes would worry me as much if not more than the heat
Around 35 degree on an easy walk she should be fine - but if you get into the high 30s or low 40s I'd not take her (geez it's to hot for a human to go walking in that heat )

Ditto.

She's turning eight. Sounds like she's been doing it for quite a while now and is accustomed to the heat. She hasn't had a heat stroke yet.

Like I said, make sure she stays hydrated, print out the heat stroke information and you are good to go

Anubis_Star I won't take my dogs out until late evening in the summer.

I work in the foothills of Colorado, I have seen young labs come in dead from heatstroke in 90-95 degree weather after going on long hikes. No way would I risk it with a breed that has a thick double coat.

Plenty of water and rest, sticking to shade as much as possible is the best advice I can give other then don't do it. It's irresponsible, IMHO

vicky2200 I wouldn't do it. 95 is pretty hot for a young dog to take a stroll.
