Its ok to walk your dog on a hot mid summer day, but

Is it OK to leave your pet in the car with the window down, and the temperature is in the low 70s. I did, and my dog was fine, but a passer-by saw him and told me he was about to call the cops because he was barking I told the stranger all dogs bark on a happy day! (The Windows were Down with a water bowl full))

Is It Normal?

  • i don't think you should leave a dog in a car unless it's cool like in winter time or you leave the air conditioner on if it's warm/hot weather

    • In some of the shady towns I lived in, open windows was pretty much an open invitation to a thief. They'd steal a dog and whatever valuables were in the car. It didn't even matter if it was day or night. XD

      • I once called the police on someone who had their doors locked and windows up it was 100 outside and like 60% humidity. I saw the dog when i was going into a restaurant and when I came out the dog was still there. The girl was in a nail salon getting a pedicure. The cop didnt care he just said its probably the girls dog in the nail salon because thats where its parked. I tried to open the doors and set the alarm off

        • In a lot of places animals are considered property and not breathing living things since they aren't human. In turn, people really don't
          care what happens to them. It's nice to see that you were trying to do something sweet for that dog.
          :)
          Some people really need to do their research before getting a pet. That chick was an idiot.

  • Separate errands from dog activities. They don't want to sit alone in the car.

  • Yeah just keep doing what you're doing. It's totally fine until he dies, then you have to stop.

    • Why is this downvoted? Low 70s is what a lot of people keep their home air conditioning set to. Is it in humane for them to keep their dogs in their home with the AC so blazing hot?
