I learned some new things from this fantastic little article. Highly recommend, especially if your poodle's a fetch addict like Peggy.

"How do you recognize overload? Watch your dog’s tongue. When the tip of the tongue becomes wider and/or curls up, that is your signal that your dog has just used its final mechanism to dissipate body heat. And that’s a pretty good indicator that your dog has reached muscle overload."

Renn will quit when he gets too hot, he will keep the ball and go lay down in a shady spot. So that is when we quit. I let him rest then say ok lets go inside, and he runs in.

That's what we've always done with Peggy, too, but not since reading this article. Now I tell her when it's time to quit.
