6.  Leaving Your Pup Alone in the Car

According to research, even if you park your car in the shade, the temperature inside can increase by 20 degrees in only 10 minutes. Unlike humans, dogs don’t sweat which means overheating can happen sooner than you expect.

Overheating can cause excessive panting and drooling. In case of diarrhea and vomiting, there could be a life-threatening emergency. So, if you do leave your dog in the car, remember to crack the window open and keep them in sight all the time.
