When summer comes, many dog owners are eager to spend more time outdoors. Even if you have no plans to leave your dog in the car, it can happen more easily in the summer. But it is important to pay attention when you have a dog in the car in the heat.
Because even though many people love hot and sunny days, the heat can be very dangerous for our four-legged companions. Dogs are prone to heat stroke - this happens when their body temperature becomes dangerously high. This tends to occur when a dog is in an environment that is too hot or humid, and especially when it is physically active.
Hot cars, conservatories, and other confined areas where the temperature rises quickly can even be life-threatening for your dog to stay in in the summer. If you have ever sat in a warm, stationary car when the sun is on, you know for yourself how fast the heat can rise. Therefore, never leave your dog alone in a hot car, not even for short periods!
