Recently we have heard stories of people leaving their dogs in their cars when they "run" into a store for what they expect to only be a minute.

Simply put, don't! It's dangerous.

If you plan to be out running errands, leave your dog home, unless of course you have to go to one of the many dog friendly establishments around town that welcome Not only you, but also your pup.

We all love our pets and want to spend time with them, but for their safety I encourage you to please consider how unfair it is to leave them in a hot car, they trust you with their health, happiness and safety, don't let them down.

Check out this list of places that will allow you to do your shopping with your four legged friend by your side.
