HOT ASPHALT AWARENESS
Yea summer is finally here.
Something we never think of is how careful we have to be when we take our dog for a walk, especially on asphalt. Asphalt heats up tremendously fast in the summer heat.
Air temperature of 77 degrees/asphalt 125 degrees
86 degrees/asphalt 135 degrees
87 degrees/asphalt 143 degrees
At 125 degrees, skin destruction can occur in 60 seconds.
Please don't walk your dogs on asphalt during the heat of the day. Take walks early in the morning or late in the evening.
