Dog Days of Summer can be hazardous for dogs
The Summer heat can be hazardous for dogs if owners don’t alter their routines to make sure their pets are never stuck in hot cars. Despite common sense and a local ordinance, law enforcement gets a few emergency calls each week from people worried after seeing a dog left inside a car while its owner runs an errand. Sometimes people do not realize how quickly the inside of a car will register extreme heat after a car is parked and turned off on a Summer day. WUFT-TV’s Catherine Awasthi reports.
