How to Protect Your Dog's Feet This Summer and Beyond

While you may have had some big adventures with your pup this summer and even more planned, we know that every day has its own little adventures, as well.

Feet of Your Pet Dog This Summer? Tips to Walk Them Through.Whether you grab your dog seat cover and take a quick trip to the grocery store or even if it's just walking to the mailbox and back, your pup is sure to love every adventure, no matter how small. However, before you grab the leash and take your dog for a walk, it is important to think about his feet. Okay, maybe we should clarify. During the summer, scalding hot asphalt is a very real concern for dog owners. Taking your dog for a walk in the middle of a scorching hot day is not only uncomfortable, but it can also lead to very serious injuries and burns on your pup's feet. In order to protect your dog's feet this summer, there are a few things you should consider before taking him out.

Walk When It's Still Cool Out

While it is a great idea to take your pup on daily walks this summer, it is important to be mindful of when you walk him. The best and safest time to walk you dog during the summer is in the morning or later in the evening after the concrete and asphalt have had a chance to cool off. This will help prevent burns on your pup's pads and the cooler temperatures will make for a more comfortable stroll for both of you.

Walk on the Grass

If you do end up taking your pup for a walk during the warmer part of the day, do your best to stick to walking on grass or shady areas of the sidewalk. These shady areas tend to stay cooler than areas that receive direct sunlight so, this little step will help protect your pup's feet, however, sticking to the grass is always the best thing you can do.

Extra Paw Protection

If you know you are going to be taking your dog out in the middle of the day, you can also invest in paw wax. Paw wax is designed to protect your pup's feet from hot surfaces. It can easily be smeared onto your dog's paw pads and offers them comfortable protection. Feet of Dogs on Summer and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

Rear Bench Seat Cover

I have purchased several seat covers from area pet stores and have returned them. I love the one I got from 4Knines because it was easy to install, it's shaped just like the bench seat in my car, its nice looking and it doesn't slide around. I have a large dog and a medium sized dog and the cover stays put! Thanks, 4Knines!

Seat cover

We have 2 big dogs and an hour and a half trip to the lake house. The lab sheds black hair everywhere on the tan leather, the Goldendoodle but he has long nails and left little holes in the seat of the car I had before. Got the new car and immediately ordered your cover, it came in quickly, was easy to install and saved the new car lots of damage. Love it! Recommend it highly!

Very well made

Recently purchased the waterproof bed liner. Very happy with the quality workmanship and that the material is soft and doesn‰Ûªt make noise when shifting positions.
