Hot Asphalt and Your Dog

How hot is too hot?

We all want the best for our pets, but sometimes we don’t realize when our pet is uncomfortable because they can’t verbally tell us. Whenever you take your pet on a walk or to join you for any activity, it is important to check the asphalt/pavement temperature before allowing them to walk on it.

Take a moment to read this great article below that provides some insight on how to determine when the pavement is too hot for your pet.
