1. While winter temperatures in Southern California deserts are mild, heat can still build up fast inside a car. Be very, very cautious about leaving your dog unattended, even for a short while. If you must step away for a few minutes, make sure the outdoor temperature is below 60 degrees, and leave the windows cracked.

2. Bring water—lots of water. Dogs, like people, need frequent hydration in a desert climate. It’s a good idea to carry water for both of you wherever you go, whether on foot or in a vehicle. If you’re dog isn’t trained to drink from a water bottle while hiking, carry a collapsible bowl. more »
