The rules on whether you can take your dogs on ferries vary depending on the operator. However, it's still important to remember how to keep your dog safe in your truck or van if you are travelling around Europe in the hot weather with them.
A vehicle can become as hot as an oven very quickly, even when it doesn't feel that warm. When it's 22° C outside, it can reach an unbearable 47° C in your vehicle within the hour.
Less than 20 minutes in a hot vehicle can be fatal for a dog if its body temperature exceeds 41° C.
