Tesla 3 has taken a step further, and have shown a positive response to ensuring that their car owners are happy with their needs. As a pet owner, ensuring that my pet is safe and secure is my biggest concern. Nothing can replace a loyal and best friend I found with my dog. Thanks, much Tesla for the Dog Mode feature. I am sure he is as happy to be in the car, as I am.
