Protect paws from hot surfaces
Test the temperature of pavement and boardwalks before you let Fido prance across it. Asphalt, sidewalk pavers, and even wooden structures like our dune crossovers can heat up under the Texas sun and burn your buddy's paws. When in doubt, carry your pet over hot surfaces or wait until a cooler time of the day to take him for a walk.
You can even buy doggie booties that protect paws against hot surfaces, such as the Hipaw Summer Breathable Dog Boots, available for under $15 on amazon.com. On petco.com, check out silicone, water-proof dog boot from YOULY The Nature Lover for around $20.
