Posted On 30 Jun 2015 at 12:46 pm

Animal welfare officers from Brighton and Hove City Council have issued advice and a warning to dog owners in readiness for the predicted heatwave.

They said

  • Never leave your dog in the car, even with a window open
  • Welfare officers take a “zero tolerance” approach and will not hesitate to get the dog out
  • Avoid taking your dog out in the middle of the day – change your routine if necessary
  • Remember hot pavements can burn dogs’ paws
  • During the hottest part of the day keep your dog indoors with plenty of water
  • Never leave your dog shut in a conservatory – they can become as hot as cars

Anyone concerned about a dog in a car is asked call the Animal Welfare Team on 01273 294266.
