Weather in Philadelphia can be wet with frequent rainy days necessitating good rain gear to keep local dog walkers and their pets dry.  In the winter, cool weather can result in precipitation turning to snow. Wait until daytime heat melts slick surfaces before venturing out for a daily walk with your pup. Summer days are hot and humid and especially in the urban Restaurant Row neighborhood where the reflection of heat off paved and concrete surfaces can exacerbate temperatures. Avoid walking when high temperature causes paved surfaces to become hot as this can damage your dog's paws.
