This Week’s Hottest Yoga Pants Ever
Many owners like taking their dogs on walks to enjoy the warm summer weather with them, but many of them forget about one important detail: hot pavement CAN and WILL burn a dog's paws! I know it's tempting to take your dog everywhere you go, but it can cause serious harm to your dog if you are not careful. Remember that if asphalt and cement can get hot enough to cook an egg during the summer or if it feels way too hot for you to leave your hands comfortably on the ground for at LEAST 10 seconds, it can result in nasty burns on your dog's paw pads. This is especially true if you have a new puppy with tender young paws. So how can you protect your fur baby? • Walk him/her when it's cool outside • Stay on the grass • moisturize the paws to prevent injuries like cuts, cracking, or peeling. I hope this was helpful to my fellow puppy parents! Have a happy SAFE summer!
