Artificial grass and your dog

Does artificial grass burn dogs’ paws?

Artificial grass does not stay as cool as natural grass, which has water running through it, but does not absorb and radiate heat like pavement, rock, or brick. If you are concerned about your dogs’ paws getting too hot, we recommend making sure there’s a shaded area for them to retreat to.

It’s important to note that any surface that isn’t alive, like grass, a plant, etc., will get hot, and pet parents should always be aware of the heat of a surface before allowing their dogs to walk on it. 

We always recommend regularly spraying the area or putting a cool mat down for your dog to lay on.
