It does sometimes happen that a dog is accidentally burnt.  A useful remedy is a solution of strong tea applied to the burn.   You can also apply a thin layer of Vaseline.  If the burn is serious then obviously the dog must be taken as soon as possible to the Vet.

Incidentally a poultice of strong tea is also useful as a helpful remedy for eczema.
