Protecting Your Pooch's Pads

Protecting your dog's paws from New York City's scorching sidewalks.

17 July 2009
pawIt’s hot in New York, and don’t think your doggie didn’t notice. In fact, dogs paws can hardly withstand the hot concrete and patios in the summertime. Note: If it feels too hot for your feet, then it feels too hot for Clifford’s. But this is New York, and we can’t avoid walking our dog for fear of blistering concrete! Fortunately, there are some options to keep your dogs paws free of blisters, burns, cracking and soreness. Take note. 

Long walks on pavement can cause blistering, soreness and cracks. Think of yourself walking on hot coals. Maybe you could do it to run across. You may even be able to run across twice, but could you walk over them for a half hour? And would you want to? Taking your long walks in the early morning or evening – especially after sunset – is the ideal way to ensure your pup’s paws aren’t scorched. And yes, dog parks in stay open even after the sun sets on Gotham. Walking erratically or limping are signs your pooch’s paws need shade. If you can’t make it in the morning, consider investing in a pair of doogie boots.

I realize it sounds extreme and sometimes looks silly, but we don’t live in the suburbs where we can open our back door and let Rover roll in the cool green grass. We live in a concrete jungle and here, dog shoes work wonders. My favorite for summer are Barkadeer Dog Sandals. They are a light sporty sandal and come in various colors to match your dog’s…er…fur – or any other accessory you may have. $59 may seem pricey to drop on dog shoes, but remember, they need four! And it’s going to be a lot less expensive than a trip to the emergency animal hospital and more tolerable than your crying-in-pain puppy.
