5 thoughts on “Air Temperature vs. Asphalt Temperature

      I have seen dogs at the vet’s office with their feet wrapped from burns from cement. This is not hogwash. It depends on how long they are made to walk, stand etc on the asphalt. And I would guess when it is hot outside, humans don’t casually walk across the asphalt but rather run, hopping and expressing repeated “ouch” on the way across. 😊

    I would agree with that. 77 degrees and the asphalt being 125? I seriously doubt that. Now, once we get into the 90s and up, I won’t even walk on sand anymore, but my dogs still do on their own, without me making them.
