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. What makes K9Grass® synthetic turf different from other surfaces that get hot is that the turf does not hold in heat, and heat dissipates immediately once under shade. Surfaces like sand, concrete, etc., will continue to hold the heat even in the presence of shade.
