hard breathing beagle

I noticed that after some walks my dog breaths very hard, you know how they do in summer when it is hot hot. But now is pretty cold.
I walk him in the morning usually 1,5 hour. Is it too much for him in a cold weather?

Thank you

Is this your almost 3-yr-old?

After a long, brisk walk, I'd be surprised if he wasn't panting a little, regardless of the weather. At that age, however, they should recover quite quickly after they've rested a bit. If you think he's breathing abnormally hard, though, have him checked out by a vet. Abnormal breathing can be a sign of something serious.
