Animals in cars in summer

The summer heats are already here. So, if you have a pet that will join you in your car from time to time, you need to know a few things in advance.

Pets and cars
If you have any pets it’s time you take them for a ride however, make sure you do not leave them in the car! In one hour the temperature in your car can become 40 degrees higher than the outside temperature. That's enough for the animal to die of a heatstroke. If you need to leave your pet for 10-15 minutes, try to park in a shadowy area, even if it is slightly far from your destination. Also, make sure you leave the windows open so fresh air can go in. It will not help to prevent the temperature rising, though - don't forget that.

Another important thing to know is that pets also need protection. We have seatbelts and there are special seatbelts for dogs. If you have a cat or a rodent, you can buckle theirs as well. That will prevent the animals from hurting themselves if a situation occurs. For example, when you have to stop suddenly and unexpectedly.

Changing your car
A pet's behaviour can be similar to that of a baby. You want them to feel safe and comfortable inside your car. Think about your pet when you go through some lease cars for sale.

No matter if you change your car or not be sure that you follow the good practices. Thus, both of you will be safe and have a happy trip!
