Hot Pavement Warning!

There are record heat waves across the country. I just saw someone running with a white shepherd in 88 degree weather. 😢 Try to walk dogs in the early morning and evening. It’s just too hot for them right now to walk during the day! Summer weather also brings hot pavements too. Many pet owners don’t realize that a pet's paw pads need protection on hot pavements. If the pavement is too hot for your hand, it’s too hot for their paws! Try to avoid the black pavement and stick with grass and sidewalks wherever possible. We also encourage you to look on your favorite pet retailer’s website for shoes or booties for your dog! It takes pups a little while to get used to, but they sure do help
