Wonderful Wednesday: When is it too hot to go outside?

19 Apr

Jolie has a lovely neighborhood young lady who walks her during the week. The other day, however, we broke heat records for April here in Annapolis. When walking your dog you need to be very aware of the outside temperature. Little and really big dogs can overheat very quickly. Heat stroke is a real thing and should be avoided at all costs.

I use the 5-second ground test before walking: I place my hand on the pavement for 5 seconds, and if it is too hot for my hand then it is definitely too hot for a paw.

Also, you need to apply this temperature warning before taking your pets in the car. Even with the windows open a car can heat up or freeze very fast. If it is over 70 or under 40 degrees, leave them at home.

Spring is an awesome time to play in the fields and take nice walks. Keep everyone COOL!
