I don't take chances with my dogs. They love going for car rides - even if it just means they wait in the car while I run errands. I don't take them if the temps are over 85 OR lower temps if there is no breeze. I also time my trips for morning or evenings when the sun is not at its zenith.

As for asphalt, it really depends on how hot it is and how long. Sometimes, putting your barefeet on hot pavement feels good for a few minutes - but not for a 20-30 minute walk. I would likely let the dog switch back and forth - letting him walk on the pavement for a minute or two (depending on heat) between longer stretches on the grass.

Personally, I do not handle heat well. I get sick if I'm out too long in it. I don't want my pets getting sick like that.
