Important Animal Facts You Should Be Aware Of With the Summer Heat Coming Up

The pads of a dogs feet are not any thicker than our feet so if it feels hot to your bare feet then it’s just as hot to your dog.

 

Asphalt temperature and the outdoor temperature are two very different things. When the outside air temperature is 77 degrees the asphalt in the sun is 125 degrees. You can fry an egg at 131 degrees just imagine how your dog feels as you drag him along to the farmers market or outdoor festival being held on asphalt.

 

Place the back of your hand against the pavement and hold it there for 11 seconds… if it’s uncomfortable for you to leave your skin there, then you shouldn’t make your dog do it. You can also try walking on it barefoot yourself.

Animals in Vehicles, per Contra Costa County Municipal Code:

(1)

A dog or any other animal in or upon a vehicle is deemed to be upon the property of the operator of such vehicle. No dog or any other animal shall be transported on any public thoroughfare in any vehicle unless such dog or animal is totally enclosed within such vehicle, within a secured container carried upon such vehicle, or securely cross-tethered to such vehicle in such a way as to prevent a falling out of or off such vehicle, and to prevent injury to the animal.

(2)

No dog or any other animal shall be left completely enclosed in a parked vehicle without adequate ventilation, or in such a way as to subject the animal to temperatures sufficiently above ambient to affect the animal's health and welfare.

COVID RESPONSIBLE

If you prefer, I will carry my own leash to minimize my contact with multiple hands-on contact with other touched items. I wear gloves each time I walk a different dog while using my leash or any other leash. I also wipe it down with a disinfectant wipe each day. I carry my own disposable poop bags and dispose of them.  I hand sanitize before/after entering your home.
