Could you get a dog or borrow a neighbor's? My mutt is the BEST walking partner, and we have been out a daybreak more than once. I am in Pennsylvania, and we get heat and humidity also, and my dog is 13, she minds sunshine as well as humidity. I do have a treadmill for backup (usually pop in a movie when on that) but I much prefer outside walks. I will admit that I probably would not walk outside as much if I didn't have her, and our walks are helping to keep her healthy also. I also have a human partner in summer (she works for the school system and has already returned to work) and am meeting a new partner tomorrow, but Splash is the best. She never bails on me and does all I ask of her.
