What is so bad about leaving my dog in the car?

Dogs body temperature is warmer than humans so they get dehydrated sooner than humans. On a day that is 85 degrees our vehicles can heat up to well over 100 degrees in just a few short 10 minutes. This is the time it takes for us to run in and pay for our gas at the gas station.

So why not leave the windows partially down?

Unfortunately, leaving the window partially open does not cool off the automobile enough.

What about parking in the shade?

Unfortunately, parking in the shade and leaving the windows down partially are still not enough. Just a few short minutes can cause heat stroke which can lead to death. In 20 minutes a car can heat up about 30 degrees!

How dogs sweat?

Dogs sweat from their paws and by panting. By breathing warm air for lengths of time and not being able to cool off they can get heatstroke which can lead to death.
