2. How to protect your dog from a hot car
Why it’s dangerous: Even if it’s 70° outside, your car can heat up quickly in the sun, and it becomes dangerous for your dog to be inside with the windows up. The temperature inside your vehicle can rise nearly 30° in 20 minutes, leaving your dog at risk for illness or even death.

The La Crosse Alerts Mobile 926-25101 GP Wireless Monitor System ($27.17 on Amazon) works 24/7 and will send you early-warning text and email alerts if either temperature or humidity levels go beyond pre-set ranges.
