Is it too warm to walk your dog?

With the weather set to reach up to 30c in the next few days dog owners really need to assess whether it is too hot to walk their dog.

The simple way is to conduct a 5 second test.

  1. Place the back of your hand on the pavement. 
  2. If you can’t get your hand in place because of the heat then it is far too hot to walk your dog.
  3. Plan your walks at the coolest parts of the day.
  4. Make sure your dog has easy access to fresh water and plenty of shade for your dog to rest.

Best wishes,
