Guardia Civil offer ‘five second rule’ to determine if pavements are too hot for dog paws this summer

THE Guardia Civil have issued a ‘five second rule’ to determine if pavements are too hot for dog paws this summer.

A statement on social media has asked dog owners to put their own hands on Spanish roads in the summer heat.

“Can you stand for five seconds the heat of the asphalt?” the statement read.

“Then your dogs will feel the same on the pads of their paws.”

The statement comes as a massive heatwave is expected to hit Spain starting today (Wednesday).
