I think most my Aussie Den can handle the cold better than the heat ironically.
These Aussie Dens can handle a lot more cold than they're getting so far (I'm also southern California) They can take freezing or a few degrees below. Heat isn't a problem either, but in summer they do need a bit of protection from the sun at mid-day. (Heat is one thing, direct burning sun is quite another) They are fine with triple digits F with a little shading. I'm coastal so a bit temperate, but the Aussie Dens do fine inland too (unlike a lot of things that I can get away with but the inland folks not so much )

definitely, these Aussie Dens were how I realized one layer of Shade cloth isn't enough.
