Dogs in Cars on Hot Days

1.  When travelling to the show please consider if the route to the show is on a busy holiday route and leave earlier to avoid increased time in traffic jams.

2.  If your car is not air conditioned please consider whether it is worth travelling to the show is a good idea

3.  The vehicle should be as fully ventilated as possible and plenty of stops should be provided with access to clean, fresh water.

4.  Ensure your dog is not sitting in full sunlight.  There should be plenty of free flowing air around the dog.

5.  When at the show never leave your dog in your car.

6.  Keep your dog in the shade - take a large umbrella if necessary and provide lots of fresh, clean drinking water at all times.

7.  Avoid your dog taking part in unnecessary exertion or from standing in exposed sunlight for any length of time.

Remember, if you feel hot your dog is very likely to feel much hotter and dehydrated which could lead to dire results.  Please look after your dogs' welfare.  If your dog is found to be at risk, forcible entry to your vehicle may be necessary without liability for any damage caused.

Anyone whose dog is entered at a Kennel Club licenced event should take all reasonable steps to ensure the needs of their dog(s) are met and should not put a dog's health and welfare at risk by any action, default, omission or otherwise.  Breach of Kennel Club Regulations in any respect may be referred to the General Committee for disciplinary action under Kennel Club Regulations.
