One thing that has worked great for me in hot summer months is soak the dog before you take it out, that way it will run with its own evaporative cooling system. If you think the dog is over heating get water on its underside quickly and water down to the skin on the rest of the body. Or just try to get out early morning or late evening when it may be a little cooler. What takes you to spain?
