I think the most important thing is to make sure they are always well hydrated, and keep close watch on them for any signs of heat exhaustion.

Keep them well hydrated, don't leave them in a hot vehicle, leave a fan on, spray them with water every so often, and anything else you can think of.

If they get hot, wet down their feet & their belly. Lucky Doxies! They get to travel more than I do!

If you are driving just provide lots of cool water, buy a cooler full of bottled water. Bring lots of towels. If your car has no air conditioning soak the towels in cool water or place a water bottle in a small towel and place it in the crate with them. I would buy two crates to keep them safer and for the ride for comfort of knowing where they are at all times.
