Provide a dry, elevated dog house with clean dry bedding and a flap over the opening to keep drafts out. A doghouse should allow your dog to comfortably sit and lay down but small enough to hold in its body heat.
Make sure a cat or dog has not crawled under your car seeking shelter and warmth near the engine. Tap on hood before starting the engine
