Check out this link about blood tracking and training in heat!
I wonder how this applies to the Lacy Breed? I have been tracking less only because it is miserable for me and just too hard to keep everything from spoiling and covered up with ants.
What is everyone else's experience. I did a short track this weekend it was a very fresh track, Jackson seemed to not care, but it was in woods and at my camp which was just slightly cooler than in New Orleans. Getting him back in the swing. Mainly want to go thru the routine.

He suggests a Southern Black-mouth Cur... I say use a MS Lacy Game Dog!

Water, water, water...invest in a camelback or at least attach a water bottle to your pack and wait until the sun goes down.
Unlike sweating, panting does not result in large losses of electrolytes but if you are concerned about such things add 1 tablespoon of sugar or honey and 1 teaspoon common table salt to a quart of water.
