I would love to move to AZ, I specifically love Tucson but would be open to Phoenix area as well; I work for a pharmaceutical company with offices all over the world and one is in Phoenix.
BUT, my dog is really sensitive to the heat....Is there anywhere within an hour of Phoenix or Tucson (or anywhere else in AZ that I'm not too familiar with, that isn't too in the middle of nowhere ie still within major highways where there are big companies for work) that perhaps isn't quite as hot as Phoenix?
I've never been to AZ in the dead of summer, I've been in spring, winter, and May and September but never July or August. Is the entire summer pretty much 100+ degrees from like 8 am to 8 pm? Here in NJ it can get up to 100 degrees with disgusting humidity but at least it won't be like that for the entire summer, just days here and there broken up with rain and days in the 80s and 90s as well. Not sure if the entire summer straight will be stifling hot or if it's ever broken up like that?

Any advice much appreciated!

An hour south of Tucson is Nogales, which is not as hot (but still too hot for me). If an hour is too far or you don't want to be in a border town, Green Valley is about halfway between - location and temperature.

Maybe the verde valley area north of Phoenix. What is hard about Phoenix is it takes an hour to get across it to begin with.

Prescott and Sierra Vista (maybe) are the only two that really work. The Phoenix-Tucson corridor is more than 80% of the states population and the entire economic backbone

Keep your dog inside during the summer like everyone else. Problem solved.
