Help Your Dog Beat the Heat

The Summer heat can affect your dog as much as it can you. Use the same rules you would with your child.  Do not leave your dog in a car unattended. On an 85-degree day, the temperature inside your car, even with the windows down a bit, will climb to 102-degrees in just 10 minutes. Within 30 minutes, it can reach 120-degrees. On a 90-degree day, the temperature in a car can reach 160-degrees in less time than it would take you to walk around a normal city block. Play it safe with your pets. If the temperatures are high and you’ve got some errands to run, leave your dog at home.
