Keep Your Doggie Safe During the Heat Wave

Please do not leave you dog unattended in a car on a hot day.

Not even for a minute. Not even with the car running and air conditioner on. On a warm day, temperatures inside a vehicle can rise rapidly to dangerous levels. On an 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, the temperature will reach 120 degrees. Your pet may suffer irreversible organ damage or die.  See a pet inside a hot car?   Learn how to help! ».  

Summer safety tips to keep our pups out of harms way.

  • Make sure dogs have access to fresh drinking water and shade.  
  • Keep you pets off hot sand or asphalt!
  • Dogs get sunburns too!
  • Not only can it burn paws, but it can also increase body temperature and lead to overheating.  Keep your dog’s paws cool.
  • Limit exercise in hot weather!

Dining in LA? There are no excuses to leave your dog in a hot car!  

Los Angeles County passed a law a few years back, and, you can now bring your dog to a restaurant with an outdoor patio as long as the restaurant meets certain criteria and allows it!
