Important Animal Facts You Should Be Aware Of With the Summer Heat Coming Up
Asphalt temperature and the outdoor temperature are two very different things. When the outside air temperature is 77 degrees the asphalt in the sun is 125 degrees. You can fry an egg at 131 degrees just imagine how your dog feels as you drag him along to the farmers market or outdoor festival being held on asphalt.
Place the back of your hand against the pavement and hold it there for 11 seconds… if it’s uncomfortable for you to leave your skin there, then you shouldn’t make your dog do it. You can also try walking on it barefoot yourself.
If you prefer, I will carry my own leash to minimize my contact with multiple hands-on contact with other touched items. I wear gloves each time I walk a different dog while using my leash or any other leash. I also wipe it down with a disinfectant wipe each day. I carry my own disposable poop bags and dispose of them. I hand sanitize before/after entering your home.
