“Musher’s Secret” is great. It protects paw pads from both heat and cold.

if you’re worried about them right now, you can put antibiotic ointment on them.  But you can buy booties – great for snow and heat – at any pet store.  they look ridiculous but are very good for tootsie safety.  We got them in the blizzard because of how much salt there was around (and we have to walk our dog…no yard).  they’re good, too, if you take your dog hiking or in creeks.  They will protect the paws and keep cuts from getting infected in dirty creek water.

Honestly, if it’s really hot out, you just shouldn’t walk them on the pavement. Keep them on the grass, dog park, hiking paths etc. 

Good luck!

My Fiance has a service dog and she goes everywhere with us. We carry around a spray bottle for her feet if we think it’s going to be hot, and we make sure to stick to shade if we can.

ETA: …though I have to admit, those little booties are darned cute.
