Too Hot!

NEVER walk your dog in temperatures over 85F (30C), their paws burn on hot pavement and hot sand.

Shady Area

Leave dogs in a shady area, bearing in mind the movement of the sun as the day passes.

Fresh Water

Provide fresh water daily. Clam shell pools and doggy ice treats/kongs/home alone toys are great fun, keeps them cool & provides mental enrichment.

Check the Temperature

Check the temperature of the ground or sand because it it’s too hot to touch, then it’s TOO HOT for their PAWS.


Exercise your dog early & late in the day. All dogs, especially flat faced breeds, can overheat quickly!
