It’s simple: don’t leave your dog in the car when it’s warm out

dogEvery year, dogs die slow and painful deaths for a ridiculous reason: they’re left in cars.

It doesn’t take long for a car to heat up, even in the spring. And since dogs don’t sweat the way we do, they aren’t able to cool themselves off.

The debate about how and when people should intervene in these cases restarts every spring as the death toll mounts. But what is more valuable is the simple lesson: don’t leave your dog in the car when it’s warm out.

There is more than enough research, information and media coverage on this subject (see the video below) to make it pretty clear. Don’t do it.
