Hello from Dubai,

Getting hot here by the day and more humid.

We went out today at 9.30 at night. It was 97 F and 51% humidity.

It was Rex and his friend Nala. Off leash; they did not run much both tempered by the heat. We spent maybe 45 minutes. Just walking around and sniffing about with the occasional play.

Water was provided throughout non-stop.

Excuse the ignorant question, but at what point in terms of temp and humidity we would be in danger of a heat stroke?

If we let the dogs just pace as they please and we do not push them, can they be at at such temperatures? I do not want to keep him indoors all summer.

Soon we will be at 105 F and we could reach 80% humidity? At what point should I remain totally indoor?

Thank you!

watch your dogs and they will tell you. I find that high humidity hits them faster than heat. If it takes a long time for your dogs to stop panting heavily, then you know they are hitting their limits.
