Heatwave advice

High temperatures can be dangerous, especially for:

  • the elderly
  • the very young 
  • people with chronic or long-term medical conditions.

Please take care, and look out for vulnerable friends, family and neighbours by following the advice below

Looking after dogs

  • Never leave your dog in the car, even with a window open
  • Avoid taking your dog out in the middle of the day – change your routine if necessary
  • Remember hot pavements can burn dogs’ paws
  • During the hottest part of the day keep your dog indoors with plenty of water
  • Never leave your dog shut in a conservatory – they can become as hot as cars
