After any summon, dog mode is disabled!

After any summon, dog mode is disabled!

Heads up all! After ANY summon (smart or regular) , dog mode is disabled. I feel like this should be addressed.

Question, (since I don’t have pets and don’t use this feature ), after summoning a car, isn’t the assumption that you’re going to get in and drive somewhere? So doesn’t it make sense that dog mode would disable after summoning? Or are you saying that a permanent preset that remains on in the background gets shut off, in which case yes, that does sound like a little bug that should probably be brought to their attention via a bug report from your car

Are you trying to drive your dog around for a YouTube video?

@M3Phan
My dog was in the car, with dog mode on, while I was inside visiting someone. Another guest was trying to leave however my car was blocking them from getting out. From inside the house (of course i had visuals on car) I moved the car backwards about 6 feet to allow the other person to move their vehicle. About 3 minutes after I did this i decided to check the climate through the app and noticed the temperature climbing and dog mode was off. Im glad I checked!! So to answer your question, YES, a permanent preset gets shut off. I even tested this with smart summon and the same thing happens, dog mode gets shut off.

Haha, no, see above!!!

That’s scenario makes sense. Bug report it.

I did! My thought is that people should know this limitation even if it doesn't get fixed! Or a warning in your app stating "Dog mode will be disabled after summoning".

Makes sense. It goes off any time the car is turned on.

Btw. Massive thread on this over in Tesla Motors Club

In a nutshell some valid use cases exist for doing this, and one proposed solution is it stays on until one of the doors is opened instead of car moved.

Simply turn on the climate control after you Summon. Dog Mode only adds the cutsey screen...

That's my thread! People seem nicer here! Lol!

@jrweiss98020
I agree, the point is people should know dog mode turns off after any summon.

Who needs Delivery Dudes?
Use Summon and your car will bring you a "hot dog"

" People seem nicer here! Lol" Does not compute... ;)
