Yeah Ryan even thought Havanese are double coated and it helps protect them from the heat you should take water with you. Keep him hydrated . You do not want him to get home and drink too much after a vigorous walk . Even though they are not prone to bloat any dog can get it from excess drinking or eating before or after exercise. Bloat is the second most common killer of dogs. Know the symptoms and if you suspect it get to a vet immediately. People think that if they cut their double coated dogs short they are helping stay cooler in the summer , but that is their protection from the heat. P.S. I am an older Canadian and I like and know Fahrenheit better.
