Kids and Dogs Die in Hot Cars Sticker 3 web

Dogs NSW is turning up the heat on leaving kids and dogs in hot cars, as the Bureau of Meteorology forecasts warmer than average temperatures for the next three months.

It takes only 10 minutes for the inside of a car to skyrocket by 20 degrees¹! Imagine the deadly heat inside your car when the temperature hits 40+ degrees outside, like in many parts of NSW this summer.

Dogs NSW reminds families that a child left in a parked car in warm temperatures can very quickly become distressed, dehydrated and can die from organ failure. Dogs can’t sweat to cool themselves so they can develop heat stroke and die very quickly in hot conditions.

But these large dogs may not be ‘top dog’ for long, as smaller breeds are increasing in popularity.

According to registration figures of Dogs NSW, the controlling body of pure bred dog breeding and exhibiting in NSW, and Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC), Labradors have been the most popular breed for many years, but smaller canines such as the French Bulldog and Miniature Schnauzer are slowly wagging their tails to the top.
