DOGS LEFT UNATTENDED IN CARS - an important reminder from the Kennel Club which is particularly timely during the summer months, but which is important throughout the year, as even on what may seem like cooler days cars can still heat up very quickly.   Please click here to read  The Kennel Club's press release and click here to view a very informative short video warning of the dangers of leaving dogs unattended in cars - entitled 'Don't Cook Your Dog'.
