I condition mine to the heat all year. My kennel sire is 12 and still gets after it. Like any other athlete, keep them in shape for the job they do and it will be easier on them overall.
Like already stated, hydration. Watch them close. Labs with a hard drive won't quit until you make them in my opinion.
Enjoy the hunt.
