Be aware of hot asphalt AND sand before walking your dog this summer.
If it’s too hot for you to go barefoot, it’s even hotter for your dog!
At 125° skin destruction can occur in 60 seconds
An egg can fry in 5 minutes at 131°
On hot days, take your dog for walks in the early morning and late evening.
Keep your pets in shaded grass as much as possible.
KDH Reminder: Dogs are only permitted on the beach before 9:00 a.m. and after 6:00 p.m. (unless used to aid a person with disabilities) from Memorial Day to Labor Day
