Well said lincle, but overheating does not only occur in stationary cars. For example, we will be driving up the M6 to Keswick in the next day or two with our dog in the back of our estate car, so potentially she could have the sun shining on her for two or three hours. To try to mitigate this we will have sun shades on the back and side windows and also have the A/C on the entire time, we will also stop regularly to check on her and give her water. Hopefully she will be fine. While I’m on my soapbox,during this hot weather please try to walk your dog early morning or evening to avoid the worst of the heat and please be aware of how hot pavements can become, if you are physically able, place your hand on the pavement, if it’s too hot to hold there then it’s too hot for your dog”s paws.

Don't leave me in your car either or I'll wipe all your satnav routes out of sheer boredom.

Satnavs with lithium batteries are dangerous in hot weather, the batteries have a tendency to explode and/or go on fire. Try and keep them out the sun when not in use.

Having just read that the police are having to break into cars to rescue dogs during this hot spell it beggars belief that its not illegal for owners to leave their best friends to die from heat exhaustion.Well its about time it was its an act of cruelty so surely the RSPCA can bring about a prosecution .

It does come under Animal cruelty and people are prosecuted, unfortunately every time the RSPCA take people to court for cruelty they get bad press and lose even more of the donations that help them carry out their essential work.
