The RSPCA campaign aims to teach families they should never leave a dog alone in a vehicle and always keep windows open, or use air conditioning while driving to keep pooches in maximum comfort.
Figures from the RSPCA last year show that we have approximately 8.5 MILLION dogs as pets in Great Britain, but unfortunately large numbers of dogs die every year in hot cars.
ŠKODA has teamed up with the RSPCA to provide guidance on how to look after your pooches in hot summer conditions.
This month temperatures have risen to a scorching 34 degrees Celsius in some places, which equates to an unbearable 60+ degrees Celsius inside vehicles and at these temperatures a dog can die within minutes.
A ŠKODA spokesperson said, “We worked with the RSPCA on the Dogs Die in Hot Cars campaign to help convey a positive message around what is a difficult and sometimes harrowing subject – cool dogs are happy dogs. We hope that drivers will benefit from the RSPCA’s advice and dogs will be safer."
