Front page story - Kennel Club warns
owners to be vigilant!

So far this year, the British summer weather has been as alarmingly unpredictable as ever - offering chilling cold and searing heat, with no real pattern emerging. With this unpredictability comes a responsibility - making sure dogs are not left unattended in a car which has been an issue at recent Championship shows.
Every year the Kennel Club hears reports of dogs being cooked alive after being left in a car in hot weather. In common with many animals, dogs are extremely sensitive to heat, and even on a mildly warm day they can quickly overheat - even with the car windows open and water available - as temperatures can quick rise to around 50 degrees Celsius.
