All depends on how long you're referring to as a 'stop'. At rest areas, we either:
A) hit the remote start so the ac continues to run, all go in to do our business, then come back to get the dogs on the grass to do theirs.
B) one of us (usually me) gets the dogs on the grass, the other (DW) takes the kids in to do their business, when DW and the kids get back, we swap and she's the dogs while I head in to take care of mine.
At longer stops, like picking up groceries on the way to the campground, we put the dogs in the trailer with radio on, windows open and if hot, fan running.
If really hot I try to bypass stops like that until I can get to the campground and setup the site enough to ensure the dogs have AC, then back-track for things like groceries.
