Paws & Sun: Summer Dog Walking Savvy

Schedule walks for cooler temperatures, avoiding the hottest part of the day (10am-4pm).

Evening Walks

Ensure your dog has access to fresh water throughout the walk and after.


Avoid hot asphalt, opting for shaded paths, grassy areas, or cooling surfaces.


Consider booties for sensitive paws, especially on hot surfaces.

Foot Protection

Apply pet-safe sunscreen to exposed areas like ears, nose, and belly.

Sunscreen Savvy

Watch for signs of heatstroke like excessive panting, drooling, and glazed eyes.


With proper planning and precautions, you can still enjoy summer walks and adventures with your dog.
