    Default What do you do with your dog when your driving?

    In tonights puppy class our trainer mentioned that puppies need to be restrained in a car, she told us some terrible stories about dogs and owners loosing there life because dogs were allowed loose in the car.
    I know this is bad but whenever we are in the car lady always sits on my lap in the passager seat. What's best a crate, a harness that clips to the seat belt. I want her to be secure in the car in case we ever had an accident. I am thinking a harness would be eaiser for us less bulky in the back seat. What's the best make?

    I always put Lily in her travel crate in the back seat when we are in the car. It has loops that the seat belt goes through to secure it.

    I am using a Celltei pet carrier that has the ability to be strapped in once Cicero comes home... I am also looking into a pet harness (saw a nice one for sale at petsmart the other day).

    Raven i love those carriers they look like normal handbags, quite pricy though are they well made? I could justify it if there worth the money. Just thought of another question how much movement does the dog have if it's in a harness? Anyone know.

    Hi Natalie...It's a soft crate. We started putting her in it about a month after we got her. Now she associates it with going in the car. I keep it in the garage, and put it on the floor next to the car and unzip the front flap. She goes right in by herself, no problem. When we get where we are going, mostly my Mom's, we bring it in. When it's time to leave, we say let's go girl, open the flap and she flies right it. She never makes a peep when she's in it. For long trips, it would be too small. I would use her hard sided crate for that. But for short trips it works great. She knows now that if she is going with us, she has to get in her carrier.
