When I lived in areas that exceeded 100 degrees, my dogs activity levels decreased significantly and the needs for walks were fewer - don’t feel required to walk your dog in extreme temps. Granted, dogs acclimate to the environments that they live in so 100° to Rex will be tolerated differently than my dogs who are used to 50-80° at any point in a year.
I utilized early morning and night walks, visited pet friendly warehouse stores with a/c, I also offered kiddie pools for them so soak their feet and belly’s.... many friends also had pools for days that I wasn’t able to make it to the ocean for a swim.
It’s a season and a half, I’ve always found it to be manageable.
