Lucy goes in the truck all the time, sleeps comfortably for extended periods, grocery shopping, meals out, whatever---while there maybe some downsides everything has been fine--so far.. There are toys in truck to occupy her time --if she was a chewer it may be a different story though!

I've done it at the vet's office or post office if I have to run in for a second to pick up a Rx or something. I actually have a funky car key so I'll leave the car running with the air on and I can either disconnect my remote and lock the car or I can actually pull the key out and then lock the car by remote. I don't do it for anything that will take longer than a couple minutes and I always leave the car running with air on even in the winter because hey, I live in Florida.

I take Aspen with me on errands, when weather permits. I don't ever take her on warm/hot days. Living in Seattle...it's overcast most of the year, and not usually too cold. We have a dog bed with a big, fuzzy blanket for Aspen to sleep on while she's in the car. Even when it's chilly, I put the windows down a little bit to allow for fresh air. She absolutely loves getting to come along, and is such a good girl in the car...and I enjoy her company tremendously.

Both mine like mentioned above from a few members just fall asleep as soon as I am out of sight. This is usually the scene when I return.

Thks All. Good input....I think I'm in line with the general thinking. I live in NJ and it's a good point to be aware what part of the country I'm in and what radiant heat can develop whether in the shade or not. I'm extremely careful and extremely concerned when I do leave her alone. Thanks all!

Remote starts are awesome for this reason among many! I do not leave the dogs in the car generally. However, I have family in Illinois (we live in Ohio) and do visit a few times a year. I usually take the dogs with me and if it's just me, that means they will have to be left in the car for a few minutes at least twice (Mulligan isn't aloud in the ladies restroom, hehe).

In all seriousness though, when I have to go into a gas station or rest stop I just adjust the heat or ac same as it would be with me in it (so usually I just leave it) and lock the doors and hit the remote start. Dogs are safe until I return.
