Yes even in the summer especially before protection. I will get them out, move them around, walk them to potty and then longe them both directions (like a horse) to warm up the muscles. Don't do as much before obedience since we will have generally just been out tracking.
I also cool down my dogs and don't just throw them in the crates after protection. Sometimes I will also give them a massage which Deja LOVES. She usually isn't ready to crate until she is cooled down and has had her massage. Her uncle Navarre was this way too.
