Tesla Debuts New 'Dog Mode' Feature That Tells People The Pet Is Okay

Dog Mode is meant to protect your pet from overheating.

When users select 'dog mode' for the car, it will set a temperature on the inside of the car as well as put up a message saying 'my owner will be back soon'.

Elon Musk's company provided a guide on how to set the feature up for any Tesla owners.

"To enable Dog Mode," the instructions read, "tap the fan icon at the bottom of the touchscreen when your car is parked.

"Set Keep Climate On to DOG, make adjustments within temperature limits, then leave knowing your pet will stay comfortable. Dog Mode will stay on after you leave your car.

"If you your battery reaches less than 20 percent charge, you will receive a notification on your mobile app."

The idea for the new feature didn't come from within Tesla, but from someone on Twitter.
