Touch/Tactile
dog feet
What does the animal feel? What surfaces does it walk on, lie on, and touch?

Consider the following:

  • Flooring: slippery tile surfaces, rubber matting, or carpet
  • Surfaces which are uneven or unstable such as a scale, loose flooring, or gravel
  • Temperature of surfaces – surfaces like metal, concrete, and tile can hold heat or cold. Watch out for extreme temperature differences between surfaces and the air
