Too Hot To Walk

The hot summer temperatures have started to show up in some parts of the country.  Along with that come hot sidewalk temperatures. Before you decide to head out on your next walk with your dog, a change in schedule might be in order.  Try adjusting your schedule to accommodate for an earlier morning walk, or perhaps a walk later in the evening.

If you decide that boots might be an option, remember these decrease your dog's ability to perspire and cool itself through its paw pads.  With these tips in mind, a joyful walk for you and your dog are still possible at this time of year.
