Texas has been experiencing unusually hot days lately and I think it is a precursor for what lies ahead. Last year we had 100 degree days. My dachshund is 18 Lb and he eats at 8am and 6pm. Because of the heat I am going to start taking to the dog park at 6:30pm instead of 5pm, which means that I will have to feed him earlier or later than that. The problem is that if he eats later than 6:30pm, he wakes me up at 4am to go out. So my question is, will it be ok to feed him before going to the dog park? My concern is he will be hungry after the dog park and won't get anything to eat till 8am. Any suggestions?
