Sunny days & long walks are a big no gos for Alfie Mandy ,

He's quite happy to sit in it for a while but will then move into the shade ,

I'd say just use your head & see how Wiley reacts to the warm weather as some dogs arnt to botherd by it but I'd say staffies arnt that good in the heat , I'd say no mid day walks , do early morns & defo later evening walks as it starts to cool off ,

I took casper on the park last august not far at all and he colapsed on me , i crapped myself and carried him home , wiley seems abit fitter than casper tho as casper just isnt used to walking and seems to be always panting even when its not hot , whereas wiley doesnt really pant in winter , but i still need to watch him as would hate something to happen , when i looked after casper that time cant remeber if i had mentioned this but a chap in the butty shop was making a fuss of him and was also telling me how he lost his 3 year old staffie on the park , he died when they got home after chasing a ball in the heat :( he said he would never make that mistake again

It's not worth it, Reuben pants a lot as he runs very fast so even on cold days I make him have short periods of rest in between ball play. I have noticed too that when he is waiting for the ball if I move he stops panting and waits for me to throw it so I stand still to ensure he pants

Reuben collapsed a couple if years ago in the fields, it was not particularly hot but his heart dropped to a very slow beat.. I had to carry him off the fields and rush him to the vets so since then I have been very cautious

i crapped myself with casper especially since it wasnt my dog , but after about 10 minutes he was right as rain , i was lucky to carry him as i can barly lift wiley as hes alot heavier

I can imagine how you felt, I was feared to death and could not get to the vets quick enough

Early morning and late evening walks when it's hot, the other day was warm not boiling and I still caught the sun a bit so still be careful with dogs.
One year Enzo was sick because he'd been in the sun too long just sat out in the garden so I try keeping him inside which is hard because he loves the warm and will sit in it all day.
So even if Wiley seems ok and enjoying the sun I'd still bring him inside for a bit when we get the really hot weather.

Yea he loves the sun , he lies at my patio door in the sun as it shines right through, when it gets really hot i will have to draw the curtains or something
