Hi,

Does anyone use sun shades in their cars when transporting their dogs??

I mean the ones you get for babies........

good idea??

I'm just worried that Koda will get too hot if the sun is shining on him.

That's a good idea, especially as it's supposed to be horrendously hot over the next few days.
I try not to put my boy in the car when it's this hot but sometimes it can't be avoided

I've never used them to be honest as we have always bought a car with the rear windows tinted and also use the air con, though I don't like using it as it gives me a headache:(

If your dog travels in the back it is a good idea. They can get overheated with the sun shining on them. My dog travels in the front (the back is full of lawnmowers and pointy tools) so I can't use them without impairing my view of other road users.

Yes I use them, even though the glass is tinted and they are in canvas/mesh crates that also help keep the sun off. Today there was a sunny spell just as I was following a funeral entourage - so no wind coming in. If the sun hadn't been filtered I'd have had problems.

You can buy plain ones, non-baby orientated (mine were from the pound shop!) and Halfords sell ones with paw prints on

Ooooo....I could get his photo on some.....!
I think those ones are good VFM, you get two for that price!

I'd be worried that I might be advertising what's in the boot if I had photos of the dogs on them, a bit like 'come and steal my pooch whilst I buy a paper'. Maybe I'm just paranoid!!

I took the opportunity (while at work) to pop into pets at home earlier and bought
- sunshades
- new lead for puppy classes
- treat bag
- treats that soothe teeth
- teething toy.........

I only went in for the shades!!

I had the back windows in my car blacked out. The rear window back side windows and the back door windows are all blacked out. We also have air conditioning.
