So How Can YOU Tell If The Pavement Is Too Hot?
Since most of us don’t carry around a temperature gauge that can read the pavement, there is a simple test you can do to see if it’s too hot for your pup’s paws.
The 5 Second Rule: Put the back of your hand on the pavement, if you cannot hold it there for 5 seconds it is too hot to walk. If the asphalt is so hot you could probably fry an egg on it, then it can burn your dog’s feet. Also keep in consideration certain dog’s pads, especially puppies are not as adaptable to heat and may not be able to stand even temperatures you can.”
