For those of you with pets:
We adore Pets and are dog owners ourselves, but the heat is intolerable for pets at times
- The Heat and Pets: Palm Springs is mixed about being pet friendly. The heat can be intolerable for pets and many places (certainly the spring-summer-fall months) dissuade you from bringing pets. We highly suggest leaving your pet with a sitter or at a kennel or make other arrangements.
- Airlines deny dogs flying to palm springs in the heat
- The temps get above 120* 4 months out of the year in PS. The ground (concrete and turf) can get to 140* and it is too hot for them to walk on. Consider this when they need to relieve themselves
- Pets cannot be in cars alone in these temps. Even with windows open, that car will heat up fast enough to cause brain damage or death in just a few minutes
- It is illegal in PS to leave your car running with the A/C on when you are not with it
- People have been known to break windows if they fear a pet’s safety or let them loose – and the law sides with the “Good Samaritan” right or wrong.
- Most restaurants discourage people from bringing them these months
- Pets are not allowed in our pool
- Dogs get sunburned too and sunscreen can be toxic for them
