I suppose that ^^ doesn't really make sense since I left out the small detail that includes my dogs are in crates in the bed of my truck. I don't leave them inside my truck...nor running amuck in the bed of my truck. The crates are attached to the bed of my truck.

car2ner My car is not large enough to carry a crate so we have screens on our back windows

Mutt Managers

They are pretty secure but even with these in place I would hesitate to have anyone come to talk to my dog. And I would also keep the car in sight. You never know if some nut case would try to remove the screens. Some people do the stupidest things.

Sorry this just still sounds so dangerous, not just for people reaching in but for the dog and his temperature.
many dogs will guard their territory and when they are in a car that is their territory
there is no way in hades i would allow people to stick their arm into my vehicle or if a pick up over the side of the truck into the dogs space

just entirely too dangerous
you may lose your dog this way
if it is so hot you have to leave all the windows down that far then leave the dog at home

you are going to wind up having your dog bite someone and he will pay the price for it
it is not worth it
leave it home

Blanketback How can you make a rule if you're not around to enforce it? This sounds like an accident waiting to happen. No wait, it IS an accident waiting to happen. Please reconsider how you're managing this situation, for your dog's sake and also any children who might get bitten. It's not worth it, just to take the dog with you, when you're not there to supervise what's going on. Or, get a portable fence to secure your vehicle's perimeter? Hire a guard?

zetti ITA about crating. It's the safest place for your dog to be in a car. Esp if you were to have an accident.

My dogs are ALWAYS crated in my van and thus get way more airflow because I don't have to worry about whether they can jump out. My windows are all completely down and I can leave doors/hatch open and not worry about my dogs leaving or anyone reaching in. If I don't trust the area I lock my crates shut, but don't take dogs with me if I have to park somewhere I don't trust.

wyoung2153 Crate with a battery operated fan. It isn't a great idea to have anyone just reach in and pet him regardless, with you not being right there, you never know what can happen and in the end you would be held liable.

huntergreen if a serious incident occurs while you are not there, you won't be able to defend your dog when AC shows up.
