2. Avoid walking your dog on certain surfaces.
Some surfaces, such as cement and asphalt, get hotter much more quickly than others. Remember that your pooch’s paws are just as sensitive as your feet, so if it’s too hot for you to walk around barefoot, it will be for your pet too.
If in doubt, think about protecting his paws with dog booties, which you can buy in most pet stores.
