Tesla Introduces Dog Mode for Our Furry Friends


Who wouldn’t love taking their pet along for a drive? Even a small trip to your local grocery store would become more enjoyable and your furry friend too, would love hanging its head out of the window, soaking in some fresh air. Unfortunately, not all places are pet-friendly, enforcing owners to leave their pets somewhere else, while they finish their work and come back to them. The safest place to do so, would seem to be your car. However, the dog owners amongst you would know how hazardous it is to leave your dog in a car, with the windows rolled up. Especially on a sunny day, when the glass windows surrounding the car act as a greenhouse trapping more and more heat inside.

Tesla has found a neat solution for this problem, their cars now come with a unique Dog Mode. This Dog Mode ensures that your pet would stay comfortable inside the car with the heating or air conditioning switched on. That is one problem solved, another problem that could potentially arise is also taken care of by the huge screen, a feature all Tesla models are known for. Once in Dog Mode, the screen displays “My owner will be back soon, don’t worry the A/C is on and it’s 70° F.” This would prevent concerned people passing by from breaking off your window, to let some fresh air in and your pet out.
