According to Elon Musk, Tesla’s new “Dog Mode” could be ready by the end of this week. A Twitter user asked Musk when the new Sentry Mode would be made available, and Musk replied that it would be available alongside Dog Mode sometime this week. Dog Mode is similar to the Cabin Overheat Protection feature which is a feature that has the ability to keep the temperature of the interior of any Tesla vehicle at a safe temperature in the event that the cabin overheats.
With Dog Mode activated, it will keep the cabin at an animal-friendly room-temperature environment and will also allow the screen on the dashboard to display a message that says the owner will be back soon and that dog mode is activated. Dog Mode will be helpful to those that leave their animals in the car and will hopefully be released soon.
