|Jakesworld||Horrible pic, basically the back explains how hot, how fast , a car and your dog get, talks about heat stroke. In a very nice non abbrasive way. Which I don't agree with because there are So many IDIOTS out there!|

I've put these on car windshields when it's really warm outside. One car didn't have the windows cracked, the dog was hot and panting. I went into the restaurant and paged the owner. No answer. I was gonna give them just a few more minutes before I broke the window, or called 911. Watched til they came out, I hope they got the message. About 3 1/3x6 inch. Front & back.

Like I said, no matter whether I have the car running or the windows cracked, I never leave them alone for more than 15 minutes, it's usually me running in and out in 5 minutes if I have to leave the car running due to the heat... and 95% of the time it's because I'm stopping somewhere dogs aren't allowed on the way to something with them. Otherwise, they are left at home, or brought with me.
My parents used to run into stores without us kids, and would leave the engine running.
I would just leave the windows all the way down, but I know for a fact that my dog would get out of the car if that was the case. Not run off, not go anywhere, but she doesn't like to be confined (unless she's on a comfy bed in the house...), so will find a way out of anything... just to sit by it and bark at passersby... and to me, that's fine, but to those around... not so much.
So I leave the car running if it's hot out as I run in and out of a store.

|Msmaria||Think it depends on where you live. In California, with our 70 degree winters) id be more concerned about heat stroke,.|

A word to the wise if you leave the engine running. Be sure to have the spare key because, at least in Toyotas, the remote door release does NOT work if a key is in the ignition.
It is an option I don't like because the engine can always stall out and that is worse than leaving the windows cracked PLUS if you are parked next to OTHER cars with dogs you will be a persona non grata. I cant tell you how many folks I have read the riot act to for pulling next to MY truck with my dogs under a wide open camper shell with 12 volt fans running only to find their diesel behemoth spewing hot odorous exhaust into my truck.
With SAR we have to leave the dogs in vehicles sometimes for hours. We keep an eye on each others cars and our standards require any one on the team can take any other dog out of their car to break them. but.
