Summer has started and we all know that nothing is better than having a walk with your dog in the fresh summer air. However, what we forget about, is how hot the pavement and grass could get under the influence of the sun. So, here is a tip you need to keep in mind before taking your dog out for a walk: the 5 second test!

Press your backhand on the ground, and if you can’t hold on for 5 seconds, then the ground is definitely too hot for your dog to walk on, and it might actually cause the dog’s paws to get badly burned, and as dogs are active by nature, it will be very painful.
