Beat The Heat-Don’t Burn Your Dog’s Feet!


Gonna take a walk today with Pal or Pooch?


Before striking out for a stroll

put your bare hand on the sidewalk.


Now, raise your hand up off the sidewalk

to the height of your dog’s tummy.

Heat rises to doggie’s under carriage.


Feel any heat rise up?

Now you have an accurate ‘dogmometer’

to assess if you can stroll with your Saluki.


 Save your walks ’till the time of day when your hand on the sidewalk is comfortable.


Do ten minutes of NoseWork Training at home

and mentally fatigue your dog without heat stroke.
