We all know to bring plenty of water along during walks on hot days, but what is that hot ground doing to your dogs paws?
While we try to avoid hot surfaces sometimes our path makes that impossible. Experts say that walking your dog on grass is the most desirable.
One way to test the asphalt is to place the back of your hand on the surface for 5 seconds. If it is too hot for your hand it is too hot for your pooch. If pavement is unavoidable there are options. Paw boots have become very popular and may be a great solution for hot days.
