DOG Burns AND THE BEACH:
He/She is your best friend. The sand on the beach can be blistering hot in the summer. If it is too warm for your feet, it IS definitely TO HOT for your hound. Please think twice about pegging your dog out without at least as much cover if not more than you have.
Bring plenty of water on the beach for your dog. If you do not have a water bowl, come to the office. We will make something work for you
Remember, your dog panting is it's way of sweating. Darker or longer furred dogs can suffer tremendously from heat exhaustion if exposed even for short amounts of time. Likewise, very short haired breeded dogs will burn very quickly.
In July and August it can easily be over 130 degrees sand temperature. FYI, you can fry an egg at 135.
That is hot enough to burn your puppy's pads. Please...blanket and shade goes for the puppy as well especially after May and before October.
USE THE SEVEN SECOND RULE....place the back of your hand on the sand or blacktop for seven seconds...If it is too hot for you...it is already way to hot for them to be exposed to the sun.
