Feeling like 40-45 Celsius here with the humidity - about 105-115 F I believe. So no field tracking this morning. We went to the pond for a bit of casting and blind work, instead and I can tell you - as I had to walk into the water with sandals on to encourage her go on the blind - that it was like a bath tub. Not sure it provided much relief, but it was the only training option today! We kept it short and sweet and wrapped before 11am.

lol mid 90's and no humidity is like 75-80 here on the east coast. You have it easy right now. It's 96 here now and the heat index (factors the humidity) has it at 109 degrees right now. Tomorrow will have a heat index of over 115 degrees.

105-115 real feel temps is normal for my area this time of the year.

LOL....I grew up in Lower NY and went to college at Univ of Miami Fla!

I remember that humidity very well....Happy to say, I escaped to Nevada over 35 yrs ago..
Last time I visited relatives down there, ..I couldn't breath between the low altitude and the high RH..

I lived in North Carolina for 6 years back in the 80s (Elizabeth City, an hour inland from Kitty Hawk) and it was rough in the summer time.

No I lived directly across from the base in Camden.
My parents opened a second printing location. We're from Philly and eventually moved back to the area

As an avid runner dealing with the heat in NY region, I would like to offer up the tip of just not training the dog if it is that hot. Missing a day or even a week will not set you back that much. Many people fear loosing some conditioning if they miss sometime of training but the fact this if you are in good physical shape and/or your dog has has much training for whatever the event is, you just won't loose much of a competitive edge. Don't stress yourself or the dog over the heat... As the expression goes, just "chill". It's hot outside.
