Running with dogs during the summer months

Running with dogs during the summer months

The measure we use is to multiply temperature (c) by humidity. For dogs to be able to join a club run, there must be a measure of less than 1,000.

We are very aware that this rule is just a guide and many more factors impact dogs during the heat, however, it is a good guideline and therefore one we will stick to as a club.

It's also very important to remember that, whilst some dogs can do more, some can do much less. Please watch out for signs of overheating, such as excessive panting, raised heart rate, foaming, etc. If in doubt always err on the side of caution, run dogless and get even stronger.
