On traveling in the car with any dog I would recommend seatbelting them into the back seat. They make dog seatbelts. Personally, I have a harness with a D ring on it and you attach the clip to the D ring and the male end of the buckle into the female end of the buckle (it's special, you buy them at the store) and your dog is secured in the event of a crash to protect the dog as well as you (50+ pounds of forcing flying around in the vehicle can kill a human). They also make carriers, and seatbelt devices for small dogs that will work with a vehicle's seatbelt. I also buckle in cat carriers using the vehicle's regular seatbelt through the handle fo the carrier and into the female end of the buckle. SAfety First!


We purchased our dog seatbelts online for $10 each, so they're cost effective as well.

I think one of the biggest mistakes people make is bringing their dog to a street festival, farm market, etc., when it is very hot. The ground is too hot for their paws.

Thank you jaidynsmum for my siggy!
