Summer Safety Tip – Hot pavement!
Summer is here and the hot pavement can do serious, painful damage to your dog’s paws! Walk your pups early in the morning or late in the evening, when the sun is not so hot. Check the pavement before you begin your walk . Stand on the sidewalk with your bare feet for one minute – if it’s too hot for you, it’s too hot for them!
You can also purchase little shoes for your dog for them to wear for protection, or start a new walking route that includes more grass to keep their paws cooler. If you dog’s paws have been burned, seek medical treatment ASAP!
