We all know most dogs love to go for rides in the car. But as temperatures rise, if you take a dog with you, you have to plan your trip so that your dog will not be left in the car by itself. Temperatures inside a parked car can rise so quickly, and often a window “cracked open a bit” does little to offset the rise in temperature. Even on a day in the 70s, the inside temperature of a car can rise to over 100.
Don’t bake your dog in a hot car. And inform those who may not know.
