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

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

I ordered the Split Rear Back Seat Cover - Grey Regular Fitted - Non Hammock option for my 1999 Ford F-150 pickup truck. It fits perfectly in the front seat. Easy to take off and on and looks beautiful.

Got these much faster than other products I have ordered online. The fit is wonderful, even in my little Corolla, and the installation was really easy. Hair does NOT stick to these covers.I love them!


Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
