Dog own­ers are be­ing re­minded to pre­vent burnt paws. ‘‘We’d en­cour­age own­ers – and pro­fes­sional dog walk­ers – to avoid walk­ing on hot sur­faces dur­ing the heat of the day as as­phalt, con­crete and sand can be­come ex­tremely hot,’’ An­i­mal Man­age­ment man­ager Nikki Marchant-Lud­low said. An air tem­per­a­ture of 25 de­grees can re­sult in an as­phalt tem­per­a­ture of over 50 de­grees, caus­ing painful burns and dam­age to dogs’ feet.
