Warm Weather or Hot Car Emergency Contact Sheet
We all are aware of the dangers of leaving a dog in a car when the temperatures start to climb. We hear about stories of dogs having to be rescued from cars that have become too hot on the news all summer long. Dogs left in cars have become an issue that people are now very aware of and take very, very seriously. But there are times when dog owners may need to travel with their dog by car during the summer in the north or anytime in the warmer climates (Dog shows, vet visits, etc.)
With the assistance of DoggieDecipher.com, Train 'Em Tasks is now offering an Emergency Contact Sheet for those of us who need to travel with our dogs during warm weather. I'm sure that we all would want to be contacted directly if our dogs raise concern while in cars instead of the police being contacted or a window being smashed by a concerned person.
The Emergency Contact Sheet is printed on a 8.5" by 11" white sheet of 32lb paper and laminated with a sheet of 5ml laminate. There is a hole punched in the top of the sheet and you will be supplied with a 1.5" wide suction cup. The Emergency Contact Sheet may be attached to the inside of any car window so it can be seen by people passing by. Printed on the sheet are the signs and symptoms of overheating in dogs and the instructions to call or text your phone number if there is concern of any kind. We have left a large space for phone numbers to be written on with permanent/indelible markers. We recently added a space for people to use dry erase markers and write in what time they left the car.
