What does everyone do when/if they need to leave their dogs inside during the day? Wondering if we can avoid getting the AC and how much this would inconvenience us if we plan our route to cool places
The original plan was to have AC in the 'bedroom' and run it off a generator or plug in at a campground if we need to leave him for a few hours and it's hot.
Also we were gifted this remote thermostat that alerts us on our phones if it gets too hot in there. Not foolproof... but seems likely to work.
My friends dog just died because his AC went out while he was out of town. Long story how it all went down but it sucks. I leave my dog in my van if its only for 5 minutes or less but I do have an RV roof vent I run on high and I leave the windows down too.
I guess it depends a lot on your location.
I know here in FL I'm legally allowed to break into cars if an animal or child is left inside and let them out of the heat. I've not gotten to break any glass yet but I'm super jazzed about getting to when the opportunity arises.
I'm glad you asked this question as I've seen lots of skoolies with pets and no ac.
