    We take Dually camping all the time. Since he doesn't like to be in the camper by himself we take his pool with us, that way he can get in and cool off anytime he gets to hot. We also keep the air on in the camper so if it does get way to hot for him he can go inside and cool off. We have never had an issue even when it was up in the 90's. Other than that we just keep a close eye on him to make sure he's not getting to hot but he does tolerate the heat well.

    I'm sure it'll be fine! Love Buffym's idea of bringing a kiddie pool in case she gets too hot. Just watch her the whole time and make sure she has plenty of water. You can also get a cooling vest that you can dip in water and it stays cold for hours! I'm sure that'll help a lot. And be sure to bring a life jacket for safety near the lake! Have fun!

    will you have an RV or just tents? I'd be concerned about the level of humidity if just using tents.... RV you can turn on the air for her

    Personally, I wouldn't chance if if there isn't AC. But that's just me
    The righteous care for the needs of their animals,
    but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.

    I agree with the others, I wouldn't chance it if you don't have AC available. It would be too long to be in the sun and heat all day even with shade and cool water. Maybe you could have someone stay at your place and house sit with her.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    If no AC & humidity in GA (it's not just the heat), I wouldn't chance it.
    Heat stroke happens so fast once they overheat, would never get him
    to a Vet in time.

    I think it would depend on how she handles the heat outside. Is she always inside? Only out to potty? Do you take walks and regular outside play times that last more than a few minutes? I think I would take Henry. He handles the heat well and stays out for long playtimes frequently. You could always take car rides if you are worried and have the emergency plan to take her home. I wish I would have taken Henry on this vacation. I'm pretty sure he'll be on the next!

    As a breed, they require a cool environment.
    It's way too risky to take them anywhere with heat and/or humidity and not have a quick way of cooling them down. Why chance it?
