We all know not to leave pets alone in cars, especially during the hot summer months, but with Tesla's new feature leaving your dog in an unattended vehicle for a short time safe and stress free.

According to Teslarati.com, Dog Mode aims to "keep unattended pets inside a vehicle at a comfortable temperature while also informing passersby of their safety".

So, what exactly does Dog Mode do? The new feature keeps a vehicle’s climate control on even when the vehicle is turned off and will also display a message on the center of the touch screen to notify passersby that the pets are safe.

Dog Mode is only available in Tesla's Model S, Model X, Model 3 vehicles.
