Dogs, particularly elderly ones, should be exercised in the early morning and late evening to avoide over-exertion in hot weather. All dogs are required by law to wear a collar and tag bearing the name and address of the owner. If you are on holiday, it is a good idea to have a temporary tag with your holiday address on it.
Never leave you dog unattended in a vehicle, even for a short while as when it is warm or hot outside the temperature inside you car can double to that outside in 6 - 10 minutes. Dogs will quickly suffer from heat exhaustion and could die.
