If your dogs are like mine, they love to “go”. My frenchies love to go on walks, scooter rides, and car rides. When we go places, I’m careful to have the things my dogs will need, especially when it’s hot outside. I always take plenty of water, treats, poop bags, and toys. As pet owners we have to be mindful during the summer months that our dogs can suffer from heat stroke just like us. Another thing to be mindful of is not leaving our dogs in a hot car, even if you think you’ll just be gone a few minutes. It only takes a few minutes for something awful to happen to your dog. Additionally, Virginia Law allows first responders to gain access to the unattended pet by any means.
