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 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.

    I believe my new neighbors are trying to teach their 2 pit bulls to be mean. I would like to reach out to them to try to show them the error in their ways, but hopefully in a positive way, and of course look out for the best interest of the dogs. Also, their adult dog gets out at will and they have showed no interest in solving the problem. They put up a big sign saying beware of dog, yet the dog runs free in the neighborhood. Actually the adult dog seems like he might be a friendly happy dog, but he gets punished for acting good! It makes me sad. Any ideas for improving or solving the situation?

    thanks jrd…I really have to make a better effort to talk with my new neighbor and see what his intentions are. If I can get him to agree to let me and my dog meet his two and we make sure everyone gets along then that would be a great step in the right direction. Also I’d like to know if he’s going to do something about the “escape route” the older dog has found (and uses regularly to come into my yard and the rest of the neighborhood). When I do call the aspca I will have more to go on.
