Keep your dog safe – get screens for your car windows

How many times have you seen a dog in a locked car in a parking lot on a warm day and worried about the poor pooch expiring? Even with the window down a few inches, it may be an unsafe situation. Or what about the dog in a car speeding down the highway, with his head hanging out the window, looking like he is just about to leap out? Yikes. I just read about this great product – BreezeGuard screens for your car windows which allow your pet to get all the fresh air they need – safely.

Check them out at http://www.petautosafety.com/product/MMBG. Your car window can go up and down with them installed; you provide your specific car make, year and model to the website and you get a set of two.

A quick reminder to all of you dog owners on the dangers of leaving your pet in a warm or hot car – the temperature in a parked car, even in the shade with the windows partly open, can rapidly reach a level that will seriously harm or even kill your pet.

Dogs cool themselves by panting and by releasing heat through their paws. On summer days the air and upholstery in your vehicle can heat up to high temperatures that make it impossible for pets to cool themselves. So remember to take precautions when driving with your dog in the summer.
