Dogs in cars and trucks

Most dogs seem to enjoy riding in cars and or trucks, but there are things to be considered in their transportation. Letting the dog hang out the window can be a dangerous situation. A sudden swerve or stop could toss the dog out the window and into traffic. Just hanging their head out the window may cause debris or insects to be blown into their eyes. It isn’t good for their nasal passages either. There are dog seat belts designed for using in the automobile. With a dog seat belt, the dog could not accidentally distract the driver and would prevent injury in case of an accident.
