Who doesnโ€™t enjoy long walks with family and pets? The weather is starting to warm up and people are becoming more active, especially after being inside during the winter months. Society as a whole is becoming more aware of the importance of exercise. It not only is a great way to relax and clear your mind but is also great for your overall health. However, it is important to remember to take a few precautions before taking your fur baby on an afternoon walk after work.

๐Ÿพ Check the pavement with your bare feet first. If it is too hot for you, it is too hot for their paws.

๐Ÿพ If the pavement is uncomfortably warm for you, invest in pet booties to put on your pet for the walk.

๐Ÿพ Make sure you bring water for both you and your pet on the walk.

๐Ÿพ Consider delaying the walk until the weather starts to cool down and remember to wear light-colored clothing and reflective gear. They even have reflective leashes and harnesses for your pets.

๐Ÿพ Early morning walks or runs before work are also a great option!


After your walks, remember to let your pets rest inside in a cool place with lots of water readily available. Going on runs or walks with your best friend is one of the most rewarding experiences. It is just as important to exercise your fur babies for their health, just like it is important to stay active for your health. May you enjoy the warmer weather with your family, friends, and pets.
