Ok, so I have found A LOT of great answers on this site, so first of all thank you to all of the previous posters.

Now on to the problem, I went to home depot the other day and left my dog in the truck with the engine running so the heat would work as it was cold out. After shopping for a little while I was joined in the store by my dog... She rolls the windows down and come inside the store!

The big concern is that she will make a mistake and roll her head up in the window, is there a "good" way to hook up a "child lock"?

Shut off the ignition and take the keys - next time you'll come out and the truck AND the dog will both be gone!
or you could pull fuse 14 - it powers the windows

yo our Chow-Chow once tried to drive away; she was able to pull the shifter back, but her right hind toes couldn't hit the brake to complete the shift!

This is a problem with the Ford design. Consumer reports has been bitchin about iot for years. Do not leave the truck on and the problem goes away. Yake your pup into HD with you to start with. Mine loves that trip.

x2 for me. In my GTO the door lock button is right behind the shifter next to the parking brake. My dog likes to step on it and lock me out. Always take my keys with me now...

After 20 minutes of talking to him through the glass trying to get him to walk around and be excited to step on the button again, a friend came with a spare key... Luckily it wasn't a 105 degree TX summer day!

I just can't believe someone actually leaves their vehicle running while going into a store.

Dogs are pretty resistant to cold temps anyway. If you have the inside of the truck nice and warm before going in, you could easily be in there an hour or more without it bothering the dog.

Dogs locking vehicles, just hide a spare key on the truck somewhere.
