There have been many reports of dogs and children being left in cars in recent years, some with devastating results, destroying families and taking lives.
Family pets have no voice to let us know they’re in pain. They rely on us 100 per cent to ensure they are safe, have what they need and to lead them away from dangerous situations.
Sadly, people often think, “I’m just going to be a minute, my pet will be ok.”
A minute turns into 15, and now your dog is in distress. Dogs want to be with us; it is their nature to want to follow and protect.
However, if you are shopping or driving around doing chores, the best and safest place for your dog is at home. They may not know that, so as their guardian, it is our duty to do the best for our pets and this is one of those times when we have to put their needs ahead of our desires.
Leave them at home where they are safe, comfortable and cool.
