Swiss police urge owners to put dogs in shoes during heatwave

By Alice Cuddy • last updated: 03/08/2018

Police in the Swiss city of Zurich have launched a campaign calling on dog owners to put their four-legged friends in shoes during the heatwave to protect their paws.

“Not everyone is happy about the current hot temperatures. And that also means man’s best friend: the dog,” Zurich City Police wrote in a post on Facebook this week.

The “Hot Dogs” campaign calls on owners to measure the temperature of the ground with the back of their hand for five seconds to determine whether it will hurt their pet’s paws.

"Is it too hot? Then avoid routes in the sun on the asphalt, equip big dogs with 'shoes', and carry smaller dogs," the post says.

1. Good for the Swiss!

People are destroying this planet for all living things...we destroy ourselves and everything around us. The human race isn't as "advanced" as we think we are. Climate Change and Global Warming are directly linked to human beings. Period.
