Boiling Springs, SC
We see this problem fairly often during the hot summers in Atlanta. Dogs that haven’t been acclimated to hot pavement get blisters on their pads just like a human would walking without shoes. Dogs need to build up calluses just like people do. In the long run, taking it easy and slowly increasing the amount of time your dog walks on the pavement will allow those calluses to form. Once the blisters heal, you can still take the longer walks but on softer surfaces, such as grass, wooded ground, and underbrush, or with “booties” to protect the feet, only allowing cement walking for increasing time to grow the calluses.

How Do Dogs Get Blisters on Their Paws?
How do you know if your pup has allergies? You can tell by the excessive licking of their paws, which leads to blisters developing and sometimes even infection! Consider checking for food or environmental allergies if you see them doing this more than usual.
