A photo from the East Bay SPCA has brought a lot of awareness to a danger of walking your dog during the summer heat. The dogs paws will burn if they stay on hot pavement too long.
During the summer you should try to walk on the grass as much as possible to avoid burning your pups paws.
According to the Dodo, there is a simple test to see if the ground is too hot for your dog.
"Put the back of your hand on the pavement, and if you can't keep it there for five seconds, it's too hot for your pup's feet."
You should make sure your dog is not overheating. The Humane Society has a bunch of ways you can keep your pet in cool this summer.
